[VIDEO] Top Gear is trying to powerslide the new McLaren P1

The McLaren P1, which is the main star of this video, has been officially presented to the public, in a world premiere, back in March, during the Geneva Motor Show. The model in question is powered by a 3.8L V8 twin turbo, backed up by an electric motor. Total output is 916 HP (674 kW) and 900 Nm (663 lb-ft) of torque. The P1 is rivaling the Ferrari LaFerrari and the Porsche 918 Spyder.
