An Exhilarating First-Person Ride in The McLaren P1

By Gizmodo Australia on at

The McLaren P1 is the supercar of the moment, and possibly the first truly excellent hybrid the world has ever seen. Only a few hundred of the cars were made, so driving one is out of reach for most humans. No matter. Thanks to a head-mounted camera on one lucky driver, you too can now experience what it’s like to do 300km/h in a McLaren P1.

A group called Supercar Driver held a secret driver meet-up of luxury supercars at an airfield in the UK, and everything showed up, from Ford GTs, McLarens, Ferraris, Audis and Porsches. This group photo from Jalopnik gives you a great look at the class of 2014.

The P1 from the looks of things drove straight out of the line-up for an amazing belt around the track, and a head-mounted camera means you know exactly what it looks like to drive that beautiful car.

Sadly, we’ll probably never get to experience what it feels like…[Jalopnik]
