The impressive McLaren P1 has been recently caught on camera while arriving in Dubai, in the night time.

The McLaren P1 is the company’s first ever hybrid supercar and it’s a direct rival for the Ferrari LaFerrari and Porsche 918 Spyder.

The McLaren P1 is taking its power from a 3.8L twin turbo V8 engine, which is good for 727 HP and 719 Nm of torque, at 7,500 rpm.
