Not talking about just the pads, the rotors are pure carbon and are like ice untill, Can do the same thing the zr1 does, it has ducting from the engine bay to the breaks to keep them at temp
Aaron Sparks Dec 25, 2012
Watch the video: he says the brake PADS are not fully carbon because they require so much heat.
William Downs Dec 25, 2012
U can get around the problem with ducting from the engine bayto keep to keep them at temp
Dennis Choong Dec 25, 2012
I thought carbon brakes need considerable heat before they bite, which makes them impractical for road use
Description: There'll also be a panoramic roof, which seems like an odd choice given the weight that would add to the car's highest point. Otherwise the finished product will be 97% identical to the conc...

EVO magazine featured the P1 a few months back when it was shown and spoke to Mr Ron Dennis, and it appears that what we saw at Paris is what we will see when it goes into production.

This car is quickly growing on me. At first I disliked it immensely but it soon turned to ambivalence. It's definitely moving to the 'liking it' end of the spectrum.
Jason Turner Dec 26, 2012
I'm surprised how good this looks for being designed by a wind tunnel. Can't wait to see this thing go around a track. The F70 / F150, whatever you want to call it, is going to have a big shoe to fill to compete with this awesome machine. Can't wait!
Nick Schnee Dec 26, 2012
Def hope so, because the concept's taillights are easily the most awesome thing I've seen in a while.
Felix Rhett Dec 26, 2012
So are they going with the original tail light design?
Ben Knorr Dec 26, 2012
that thing looks totally awesome, I think it's gonna be a world beater. Im amazed at how many factory 10sec cars there are nowadays, hopefully the trend continues and in 10yrs or so there will be a 9 sec car on the market. :0)

Enzo, 12C, F70, or P1... Enzo, 12C, F70 or P1... Why not all four? :) Though I'd trade in a Pagani Zonda for the Enzo and a Hennesy Venom GT for the 12C.
Serge Pankratov Dec 25, 2012
I agree with William v v v the P1 is the winner in my book all day long
William Downs Dec 25, 2012
Also gotta remember unlike Ferrari McLaren doesn't have a group of cars they have to continually replace and refresh.. they have one model to be focused on, to build to perfection witch they have knocked out of the park 2 times so far... would get a 12c over anything Ferrari puts out
William Downs Dec 25, 2012
Idk besides the F430 no Ferrari has ever caught my eye, and as it stands not a fan of there design language, and from what we have gotten a sneak peak of the back won't be doing it for me either, besides this is the company that brought us the F1
Luke Purdy Dec 25, 2012
Don't say that so soon, who knows what the F70 will look/perform like
Nick Schnee Dec 25, 2012
P1 over F70, every freakin day.
Thibault Leroy Dec 25, 2012
I talked to the guy presenting the car at the Paris auto show about the aerodynamics of the car
Chris Gaines Dec 25, 2012
amazing looking car. can't wait for the reviews! and I'm digging the cantina music at the end lol
Brian Johnston Dec 25, 2012
2013 is going to be an awesome showdown of the supercars year.
Aaron Sparks Dec 25, 2012
Absolutely cannot wait for the showdown between this and the new Ferrari hypercar. Epic.
Mike Puno Dec 25, 2012
Does it come with a Daytona Rolex?
Aston Vanquish Dec 25, 2012
I will take the enzo no doubt
Austin Sullivan Dec 25, 2012
Exactly
Andrew Jamison Dec 25, 2012
Agreed
Richard Nichols Dec 25, 2012
Who needs the new Enzo? I'll take this any day.
Mike Perry Jan 19, 2013
I can see the old F1 in its styling.
Adam Thomson Jan 05, 2013
But I like the old F1 more
Adam Thomson Dec 30, 2012
The front looks good to be a McLaren,
Jacob Burford Dec 26, 2012
Looks sweet, and McLaren knows how to make a car perform!
Ryan Rainville Dec 26, 2012
I'm really excited about this car
Zaire Wilkins Dec 26, 2012
they basically looked at their own logo and made it into headlights i like it
António Villas-Boas Dec 26, 2012
To be more efficient, supercars look more and more like racecars. I'm not sure I like that, makes them more aggressive but not so beautiful IMO
Dylan Gomes Dec 25, 2012
this car looks good but looks like an over-the-top MP4-12C IMO
Jesse Andersen Dec 25, 2012
Beautiful.
Ben August Dec 25, 2012
This is sick!
Jordan Smith Dec 25, 2012
It's so radically designed it's awesome.
Connor Scanlon Dec 25, 2012
Every angle is amazing
Franck Mersch Dec 25, 2012
Magnifique !!!!!
Justin Routh Dec 25, 2012
This car is just beautiful in every way. I cant wait to see some reviews
Aaron Sparks Dec 25, 2012

Jason Levy Dec 25, 2012
I think this is going to be one of the best looking cars ever made!
Matt Piccolo Dec 25, 2012
I love it! Looks awesome!
Rockesh Boulder Dec 25, 2012
Its ok
Jacob Lerklint Dec 25, 2012
I'm sorry but I don't like it at all... Just my opinion
Jason Watkins Dec 25, 2012
This thing is badass
Megan Moody Dec 27, 2012
It's nice. Is it F1 nice or legendary? Not sure. Look wise it's not.
Zaire Wilkins Dec 26, 2012
the wing could really be turned down though
Sergi Pérez Figueras Dec 25, 2012
Brennon what do you understand for McLaren P1 Almost Ready for Production??
Brennon Aucoin Dec 25, 2012
This article is lying, they aren't in production yet!!
omarSV Dec 25, 2012
No I think he just meant it looks crap when the wing is lowered (like in the video thumbnail)
Sam Oglesby Dec 25, 2012
I think you mean it looks stupid with that rear wing
William Downs Dec 25, 2012
The rear wing is rite there starring u in the face...or were u not aware the spoiler was active and can raise and lower... can. Even be used as an air brake line the Bugatti can
Jason Levy Dec 25, 2012
@Nawwafasjrndure thats why it has one on it.
Jason Levy Dec 25, 2012
It is orgasmic
