Now I could sit here and wax poetic about McLaren's storied history in motorsport and how it built one of the greatest supercars, ever.
But more recently the brand's made a significant resurgence with its MP4-12C.
Though the folks in Maranello won't admit it, I am sure they're shaking in their boots.
Here comes the follow up act and this time it's aiming to take down the big guns. P1 is the hypercar sequel to the original monster, the F1. It's finally seen the real world and now its time to see it in action.
To kick off the activity McLaren had one of its F1 team's driver, Sergio "Checo" Perez take P1 around the Top Gear track at Dunsfold. Considering the newfound history of Dunsfold and McLaren — the MP4-12C ran an unreal lap time of 01:16:2 —we're sure that McLaren wanted to give everyone just a taste of what's to come.
We shared the images yesterday on our Facebook page. Today it's the video of Checo taking the #McLarenP1™ through its pace on the Top Gear track at Dunsfold.
