Sorry Mr Pagani you have just been knocked off the top of my if I was a rich man car list! Welcome to número UNO Mclaren.
Wyatt Gordon Jan 20, 2013
Jimmy, you're an idiot, those are the best types of engines. Big power with less consumption.
Jacob Burford Jan 20, 2013
McLaren on an engineering scale are amazing! I'm cheering for this in the upcoming battle between this and the Ferrari!
Jimmy Case Jan 20, 2013
God I hate high revving low displacement engines.
Austin Sullivan Jan 20, 2013
Doesn't matter, this is more exciting than that
Jack Howard Jan 20, 2013
Don't call it an F150.
Wyatt Gordon Jan 20, 2013
Cool, but when are we gonna see anything on the Ferrari F150?
John Augustus Jan 20, 2013
@ will will - but if you think about it Full power is only available at a certain rpm. KERS is available throughout the power band (provided batts are charged) and is therefore worth more than extra engine BHP. #logic
Will Will Jan 20, 2013
@ william the additional power from kers will only be available for short periods so i dont consider that towards the total power of the car. Its like nitro, no one considers it towards the total power of the car.
Ben Knorr Jan 20, 2013
I love McLaren. They must be one of the smartest car company's on the planet. Same tub and engine as the mp4 means they save huge on development cost and will make a killing on the new P1. Can't wait to see this thing in action on a track!
Jason Smith Jan 20, 2013
This has to be the most anticipated Hypercar of 2013 (apart from the Enzo replacement maybe...). As to the type of engine, who cares? Mclaren know a thing or two about making things go around twisty tracks in record time....
William Downs Jan 20, 2013
Why not? 800hp is more then enough for a car this light, not to mention the amount of power from the kers hasn't been confirmed yet
William Downs Jan 20, 2013
The point of this car is track times, more horsepower would be useless for the track
Will Will Jan 20, 2013
For 1.2 million i also want more horsepower.
Hilko de Brave Jan 20, 2013
Tadaa here is your newly updated mp4-12c it has the same looks and engine as the p1 this shit sucks real bad. Screw this shit!!!!
Carlos Gallego Rodriguez Jan 20, 2013
Yes but for 1.2 millions I want something new and big not a reused engine, but that's just a personal opinion
Josh Negron Jan 20, 2013
210hp/liter... Holy Moses!
William Downs Jan 20, 2013
Carlos u have any idea how much money and time it takes to make a new engine, McLaren already said when they launched the mp4 that they wouldn't use another company's engine anymore, and the 3.8 is the only one they have and that motors a beast anyway
Matt Piccolo Jan 20, 2013
Yea I don't see anything to complain about. 800hp.... Who cares what engine they got it from
Luke Purdy Jan 20, 2013
@carlos what's wrong with a twin turbo v8 producing 800bhp? Nothing
Shane Heid Jan 20, 2013
What does it matter if its makin 800 horsepower
Carlos Gallego Rodriguez Jan 20, 2013
Bah! It should have a V12 or a bigger V8 but not the same 3.8 V8
Facundo Planas Martinelli Jan 21, 2013
I admit it is an incredible car but it does not have the style, the soul, the passion and "art" of italian designs. I will always choose a Ferrari.
Paul Dickey Jan 20, 2013
I'm really not a huge fan but don't hate it. And it's not because I'm "use to boring cars" Anthony
Ben Hislop Jan 20, 2013
Turn away children, that's R-rated
Wyatt Gordon Jan 20, 2013
I wanna see it in silver or white.
Jt Collier Jan 20, 2013
its a very organic design, i like it but i think it will grow on me more in a different colour
Anthony Scalise Jan 20, 2013
Car design itself*
Anthony Scalise Jan 20, 2013
You know why people don't like it? Because its extremely modern which in my eyes is great, but to other people who are used to boring cars..this is very different. I love the design of this car, and the overall way car itself design Is going.
Colby Church Jan 20, 2013
My favorite Mclaren for sure. This looks fantastic.
William Downs Jan 20, 2013
Such a beautiful car, can't wait to see some track footage, and mohd there was a video of one comoed driving around, they got some good sound clips of the engine in it
Matt Piccolo Jan 20, 2013
Def not my fav mclaren
Daniel Carvalho Jan 20, 2013
I don't like the design much, but if I had the money, I'd probably buy it, because this thing looks like it's going to be an awesome car to drive.
Shane Heid Jan 20, 2013
The headlights are shaped like mclaren emblems, awesome
Mohd Almarzooqi Jan 20, 2013
I dont know why people dont like it but this one cant be better, the design like mclaren logo and it looks aggressive enough,at the end the main thing how does it drive and sound i hope this thing will sound better than mp4-12c
Description: The chassis also has the same carbon-fiber passenger tub as the MP4-12C and all of its body panels are also composed from that lightweight and extremely durable material. Any exposed metal such as the...

This is gonna be massive! All three have über racing heritage and all produce great cars. Just need the Americans in now and we've got a Modern remake of a big war form the late 30s! Oooooo controversial!
William Downs Jan 22, 2013
Yea I wouldnt count out the 918, thing looks very promising for Porsche
Matthew Mazzarelli Jan 21, 2013
Porsche had. 7:18 ring time. I'd be surprised if the P1 can beat it... And let's not forget the 918 is a hybrid aswell.
Kyle Kloewer Jan 21, 2013
Wow I love how the think. No no forget the Porsche. We only care about what Ferrari has to bring. It's like they know they have beaten the 918 already
William Downs Jan 20, 2013
Mclaren has and probably always will be better then Ferrari on the track, minus F1 Ferrari has that
Jackson Michael Jan 20, 2013
Ya no
Charlie Austin Jan 20, 2013
So basically, it's a MP4-12C.. -__-
Luke Purdy Jan 20, 2013
I'm guessing that the Ferrari will have the greater top speed but the Mclaren will record the best lap times
Harrison Armstrong Jan 20, 2013
I'm going to go with the P1 being faster on a track, with the F150 being more fun/engaging. That's kind of how it was with the Mp4-12c and the 458 italia.
John Serely Jan 20, 2013
@nick um...no, not really
Cam Heaney Jan 20, 2013
As much as I love this car, my money is on the new Enzo also
Andrew Suliteanu Jan 20, 2013
$100 on the new Enzo, no doubt.
Carlton Salmon Jan 20, 2013
Bring on the Nurburgring lap times!
Jackson Michael Jan 20, 2013
Shit is goin down guys
Luke Purdy Jan 20, 2013
God what a hyped car rivalry this will be. Mclaren vs Ferrari
Rommel Powell Jan 20, 2013
That is exactly what they're saying. You gotta love it.
Sam Reinsel Jan 20, 2013
Not really.... More like "the Porsche isn't the same kind of car as ours".
Description: Production should be underway within the next few months but here's the kicker: only 500 units will be made, each with a price tag of $1.2 million. McLaren will reveal more details about the prod...

@serge just because it was for charity, doesn't mean it was just for a write-off.
Jackson Michael Jan 20, 2013
Well that won't be anything near their profits because it cost so much to design and build them
Joe Cullen Jan 20, 2013
If you multiple $1.2 million by the amount of units mclaren are producing you get : 600 million which should be more than a enough profit for mclaren
Serge Pankratov Jan 20, 2013
The one and only Covette that has ever been sold for over a mil has already been sold. And that was for charity, which means it sold for so much simply for tax write off purposes. It it NOT worth even $100k
David Justice Jan 20, 2013
Read the Barrett Jackson article Sam.
Samuel Reid Jan 20, 2013
Same price? In diecast car yeah maybe
Eric Dare Jan 20, 2013
Hmm. Mclaren P1. Or a 2014 corvette stingray? Same price
Jack Dransfield Jan 21, 2013
It just looks like they tried to hard with the design, I understand about the functionality but it looks disgusting and looks like it has an overbite.
Ben August Jan 20, 2013
Looks good! Can't wait to see it in other colors and trims as well. This thing will be a beast to compete with!
Jacob Burford Jan 20, 2013
I love this! Looks like it means business, and has major presence!
Hunter Wolfe Jan 20, 2013
@tino. I personally think it looks amazing! But knowing McLaren they didn't make it to look pretty they made it to be more arrow dynamic and be able to turn better and put down force better.. I also like the color tho. But your the artist =P
Jackson Michael Jan 20, 2013
Haha knowing the Chinese they'll throw an three banger into it too
Tino Domingue Jan 20, 2013
@ashton So true!!!
Ashton Summers Jan 20, 2013
Wonder how long it will take the Chinese to rip this off.
William Downs Jan 20, 2013
This car is sexy as hell, a body designed by the air and suspension. And an engine designed and built by McLaren what could be better... flipping car porn rite there
Malachi Monteiro Jan 20, 2013
It looks horrible, kill it, it makes me like the MP4 so much more after seeing this ugly thing.
Wyatt Gordon Jan 20, 2013
Tino, I disagree, I love how this thing looks, it's gorgeous! And this is coming from someone who generally doesn't like McLaren
Tino Domingue Jan 20, 2013
I do like the back, but a lit busy... I will say that maybe in a different color it would look better... But sorry as a art designer... No, just no.
Tino Domingue Jan 20, 2013
Yeah the cabin doesn't fit the over body it's too oversized n not proportional... The lights look lost... With the front bumper, wait there isn't one... N also, with two tone colors split it isn't working... Over all I say epic fail...
Daniel Kenneth Babler Jan 20, 2013
I think it looks beautiful! The design is breathtaking IMO
Davey Edwards Jan 20, 2013
It don't match up behind the front wheel
Davey Edwards Jan 20, 2013
Looks like that door would kill aerodynamics
Anthony Scalise Jan 20, 2013
Beautiful, finally something that's not just going with the flow of cars today, it's something very different
Justin Di Nardo Jan 20, 2013
While it has some nice design details, it's overall shape is unbalanced, and lacks an organic soul.
Ben Knorr Jan 20, 2013
looks pretty sweet!
Jason Smith Jan 20, 2013
If this thing is anywhere near as revolutionary as the F1 it will take some beating.
Oscar Galvan Jan 20, 2013
I think they are trying to make it look like it is ahead of its time like the F1 looked
Ian Barger Jan 20, 2013
Yeah its ugly to me too.
Marilena Katziou Jan 20, 2013
Mmm... I thinks it's ugly
William Downs Jan 20, 2013
Its an air brake/spoiler
Jackson Michael Jan 20, 2013
Is that an air brake or something in the back?
Wyatt Gordon Jan 20, 2013
*great
Wyatt Gordon Jan 20, 2013
Gret looking car, I love it!
William Downs Jan 22, 2013
There carbon ceramic, there solid because they used to be drilled and slotted at one point then they found out how dangerous and prone to failure it made the rotor so now there just thicker and solid to help prevent over heating and exploding rotors
Ben Knorr Jan 21, 2013
no man, cross drilled rotors are for posers. This is a racing machine...solid rotors work best.
Johnny Vu Jan 21, 2013
They're not cross-drilled??
Michael Davidson Jan 20, 2013
That's like a 15 inch rotor. My car has 15 inch wheels.
Miranda Nearlydriftingondreams Pavelle Jan 20, 2013
Those breaks are the size of my wheels.
Will Will Jan 20, 2013
That was done on purpose.
Matty Michaels Jan 20, 2013
Sheesh, talk about panel gap!
Justin Di Nardo Jan 21, 2013
Well it's definitely a polarizing design but I don't see it being as timeless as the F1.. Or even a 458 for that matter.
Ellis Yi Jan 20, 2013
Unbelievable lines def work of art and incredible engineering
Ashton Summers Jan 20, 2013
Bet there is a hyperspace button somewhere in the car.
Luke Purdy Jan 20, 2013
I can't see how people could think this car is ugly, it's stunning!
William Downs Jan 20, 2013
Serge McLaren have always beaten Ferrari, on the track there always faster then the Ferrari equivelent
John Patten Jan 20, 2013
This thing is ugly.
Serge Pankratov Jan 20, 2013
What a stunning car! Hope it will be better than the Ferrari so that Ferrari fanboys can shut it!
Colby Church Jan 20, 2013
This is just gorgeous. Period. Looks stunning. Great job by Mclaren. Very innovative as well.
Scuttle Buttocks Jan 20, 2013
I think the production model will be even better looking.
Ben Knorr Jan 20, 2013
organic beauty. I love it!
Eric Michalak Jan 20, 2013
That tread pattern is pretty sick.
William Downs Jan 20, 2013
I think McLaren has proven it knows the buisness when it comes to handling since both of there last cars were track monsters and are for the most part faster then any of its competitors when it comes to track times
Paulo Ferreira Jan 20, 2013
I think that Mclaren should wait the Ring's time. Then talk about its competitors.
Daniel Alexander Soutar Jan 20, 2013
I can understand people's disapproval of most of the car, but the back end is MEGA.
Rommel Powell Jan 20, 2013
This car is ridiculously gorgeous. The paint, even though its an awesome color, does this car no justice. I want to see it in white. Thats just my opinion.
William Downs Jan 20, 2013
Sweet they went back to the strip, Daniel there is a led strip around the back like when they first introduced the car
Nick Schnee Jan 20, 2013
Matt, you're not serious, are you?
Matt Piccolo Jan 20, 2013
Dang, this is ugly. I had high hopes for this car :-(
Daniel Carvalho Jan 20, 2013
Where are the tail lights?
