  • McLaren P1 versus modified Nissan GT-R

    A McLaren P1 lined up alongside a modified Nissan GT-R at a drag meet in the U.K. recently, and the guys at Shmee150 were there to capture the action on film. Although the stock GT-R is in another league compared to the McLaren P1, the version you see here has been worked over by tuning firm Litchfield and is said to be producing upwards of 850 horsepower. ALSO SEE: 5,000-HP, 348-MPH Devel Sixteen Spotted In The Wild: Video Yes, the McLaren still has the power and weight advantage, but the GT-R does have an all-wheel-drive system to help get it off the line.

  • McLaren P1 laps the Nürburgring

    McLaren has been rather coy with a potentially juicy tidbit pertaining to its P1 supercar. Specifically, we're talking about just how fast the ultra-exotic can scoot around the Nürburgring. To some, this is a meaningless stat that only matters to automakers to serve as a bullet point for potential shoppers. To others, however, it has come to serve as the most important measuring stick for the worlds most elite machines.

  • McLaren P1 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed

    McLaren’s Formula One ace Jenson Button took time out from his busy schedule to drive the company’s new P1 supercar at its dynamic debut at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed this past weekend. Button not only drove the car but raced it up the event’s famous hill climb where he managed to set a time of 53 seconds, which isn’t too shabby considering the course record stands at 41.6 seconds, as set by Nick Heidfeld back in 1999 in another McLaren, the MP4-13 F1 race car. Looking its best, at least to this author’s eyes, in full black, the P1 used on the day was a...
