Chris Harris has recently went behind the wheel of an impressive McLaren P1 on the Yas Marina track, and the result can be seen in the video posted below.
One of the most impressive supercars out there, the McLaren P1, is the main star of Chris Harris’ newest test drive.

Some of his conclusions are that in a straight line, the model feels faster than a Bugatti Veyron and that the P1 is in a different league compared to the Porsche 918 Spyder.
McLaren has already sold the 375 units of the P1 which have been produced for a price of 866,000 GBP, each. The British hybrid supercar has been unveiled back in 2013, during the Geneva Motor Show, in its final production form. The model is taking its power from a 3.8 liter twin turbo V8 petrol burner and by an in-house developed electric motor. The total output stands at 916 HP and 978 Nm of torque, which are being sent to the rear wheels through a 7-speed dual clutch transmission.
