    Hahaha, so funny!

    These pics are much better, so live it may be even better, but I'm not sure I like it more than the MP4-12C.

    It just wasn't that obvious in the other photos.

    Just WOW!

    Finally a modern day replacement for the legendary F1.

    Well done McLaren.

    Surely McLaren could have charged an extra US$100,000-150,000 per right-hand drive example so the car could be legally driven in countries such as the UK, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, South Africa, etc. The problem is Japan. Most buyers of foreign cars in Japan want their cars to be left-hand drive for the perceived exclusivity.........

    I can see there is global demand for 90-125 RHD versions (excluding Japan) of the P1 if McLaren would build them. But to be fair, 70% of the 90-125 would have been sold to buyers who would purchase them regardless of RHD or LHD.

    Don't know about the other countries but it's perfectly legal to drive a LHD car in the UK.

    It looks small next to the 918.

    Impressive. Doesn't look at all too much different from the P1 Concept. Colour me excited.

    The car needs wheels with central lock nut.

    Surprisingly the concept does not. There must be a reason just like how the MP12-C has steel ant not carbon ceramic brakes as standard

    Actually it is a pretty useless feature for a street car or even a semi-track car like GT3 RS. It's really advantage is faster pit stops - something completely irrelevant outside of professional racing. On top of that, it is not safe, there have been multiple incidents where the GT3/RS wheels have come off at the track. Porsche even had a recall for the center nuts (a pretty useless recall, but I won't go into the details here). Some people who track regularly have even converted their cars to 5 lug configuration.

    The car looks like a feather on the road... that's perfect!
    Can't wait for the first test :)

    PS: The car looks better in the camo paint... maybe black or white is the color to go for with this car :)
