I saw one two weeks ago driving around beverly hills, right next to a pagani huayra
Ilya Kravchik Jun 08, 2013
The back end of this car is extra sexy
Harrison Phillips Jun 07, 2013
Newport reppin!
Amir Reihani Jun 07, 2013
918 isnt in the same league.
peter.sauer.940 Jun 07, 2013
a car born in a cold climate country, is now going to spend its time in a hot, humid, always Sunny never rains place,, yuk!!
Marcus Hogan Jun 07, 2013
I wonder what one of these would look like back in ireland
Ben Knorr Jun 07, 2013
where's 1.15 US mil when you need it?
Christopher Sturgeon Jun 07, 2013
In, not I'm lol
Christopher Sturgeon Jun 07, 2013
Thank you ;)
Marcus Hogan Jun 07, 2013
Well spotted chris just noticed that myself
Christopher Sturgeon Jun 07, 2013
This is still the proto type, pre production car from Paris. It doesn't have the added vents I'm front of the front tires.
Taylor Rosello Jun 21, 2013
Words can't even explain how badly I want this car
ryan.tran.146 Jun 12, 2013
go to the Newport beach mclearn dealer all the time just to drool I definitely see me taking a drive the beach this week lol
Christopher Sturgeon Jun 08, 2013
Yellow for sure ;)
Colby Church Jun 08, 2013
I'll take it in yellow. :)
Robi Dunay Jun 08, 2013
This has grown on me like crazy
Facundo Planas Martinelli Jun 07, 2013
This is the perfect color for this car....
Jacob Burford Jun 07, 2013
So beautiful! Now where did I leave that 1.15 million dollars?
Ben Knorr Jun 07, 2013
tests done on his cars. The video tests that are on the net give the impression of a very fast but very unrefined car. Nothing to convince me it's on the same level as Ferrari, Porsche or McLaren.
Ben Knorr Jun 07, 2013
Austin - how has he proven himself? What lap records does he hold, what championships has he won? What comparison tests has he won? I understand that racing is extremely expensive and not everyone can do it, but there is very little independent
Austin Sullivan Jun 07, 2013
I don't get how they haven't proven themself... The Agera R performs beautifully. As did the Trevita and the CCXR and the CCX. Hell, he developed a car that ran better on ethanol. And you say he hasn't proven himself.
Austin Sullivan Jun 07, 2013
@Ben, you're kidding me right? Koenigsegg develops their own technology for the complete car. And they do it without having to use racing as testing. The man is a genius.
Ben Hislop Jun 07, 2013
Who owns that?
Ben Knorr Jun 07, 2013
imo to be in the same league as the big three I already mentioned.
Ben Knorr Jun 07, 2013
Ferrari and Porsche. Those companies produce road cars from technology learned from competitive racing, not invented out of thin air. And don't get me wrong, I like k-segg's, they definitely think outside the box. They just haven't proven themselves
Ben Knorr Jun 07, 2013
Carlos - I disagree. Everyone puts k-segg on a pedestal because they are fast in a straight line and have cool doors. What evidence is there that hasn't been produced by Von Christiansen himself that the car is on par with the likes of McLaren,
Karim Agag Jun 07, 2013
It actually looks good.
Carlos Galicia Jun 07, 2013
Ben, koenigsegg is way better then Porsche in the design aspect of their street cars. Honestly shouldn't be comparing the two though way different leagues. The P1 is my dream car and best recently released car imo
Harrison Phillips Jun 07, 2013
Newport reppin!!
Ben Knorr Jun 07, 2013
Seems to fool a lot of people surprisingly.
Ben Knorr Jun 07, 2013
Jack -there's a big difference between the two. Porsche maintain the basic shape on purpose, only slightly changing all the panels once in awhile. K-segg changes the headlights and taillights and gives the car a new name as if its a whole new car.
Jack Price Jun 07, 2013
Ben - then you would have to say that Porsche have outdated designs
Ben Knorr Jun 07, 2013
Randall - Ever notice how the Agera looks amazingly similar to the CCX car that K-segg debuted with back in the early 90's? look it up, the Agera is an outdated design. It's got nothing on this.
Tyrone Smith Jun 07, 2013
Okay I'm officially on board for this car! I have finally realized its sheer beauty!
chris.bridgers.94 Jun 07, 2013
I would do so many illegal things for this.
nxs Jun 07, 2013
haha nick yea it is a bit too good to chill in the us but any foreign car is too good here imo. can you imagine seeing merican cars everywhere...
Riley Miller Jun 07, 2013
This has definitely grown on me and now I see this and the Laferrari as equals
Austin Sullivan Jun 07, 2013
Best car out there
Daniel Zizka Jun 07, 2013
I would prefer to have a classic 1969 Porsche 912 Targa !!! So cool ! ( it's my dream )
Nick Williams Jun 07, 2013
Hmm :/ this car is a bit too good to belong in the US
Malachi Monteiro Jun 07, 2013
Growing on me, still not the best looking Hypercar.
Brent Howard Urquhart Jun 07, 2013
Wow this car is beautiful. The McLaren orange is perfect for this car. I personally think that all McLarens look best in this orange. Just like all Ferraris look best in Ferrari red.
Donovan Ybanez Jun 07, 2013
Wow that's beautiful.
Ben Knorr Jun 07, 2013
Probably the best looking hypercar in the world right now. Daniel, your an idiot.
Tim Hooker Jun 07, 2013
That's the new corolla...buzz you so crazy
Edmond Gebara Jun 07, 2013
Best color, hands down. Yellow will be gorgeous as well. With black wheels of course
Nick Schnee Jun 07, 2013
Daniel, are you disabled?
Oleg Odessit Jun 07, 2013
Some people either blind or simply retarded
Oleg Odessit Jun 07, 2013
Does it starts?
Marcus Hogan Jun 07, 2013
This is a prototype not a production car. The vents before the front wheelarches are missing
Daniel Zizka Jun 07, 2013
This is the worst looking hypercar that you can buy today...
Saajan Patel Jun 07, 2013
Matt.. This is the p1 And this car looks really nice.. Hard to find a bad angle
nxs Jun 07, 2013
matt are you the wee todd or something?
Michael Armitage Jun 07, 2013
Erm......:/
Matt Marchant Jun 07, 2013
This is an mp4-12C, NOT a p1
Description: Just check out the full skinny recently released by McLaren on what you’ll get for your money and tell me this isn't worth every penny. Hat tip to Phillip.

And has anyone else noticed that you can see the McLaren logo on the hood as well? It's very neat how the designers put that little touch in there.
John Charles Keenan Jun 07, 2013
I like this, but not more than la ferrari, ferrari always has more passion and fun in them...
Cuan Humberstone Jun 07, 2013
Reckon jay Leno ordered his in this colour
Carlton Salmon Jun 07, 2013
McLaren P1 all the way for me.
Cuan Humberstone Jun 07, 2013
One slight issue ( as there are so few things wrong with this car) I think Laferrari has better looking instruments;) Prefer the p1 though
Austin Sullivan Jun 07, 2013
LaFerrari is an ugly, ugly, bird car. Stay away from them.
Mindy Jones Wilkins Jun 07, 2013
I think it is extremely nice and cool
Oleg Odessit Jun 07, 2013
Wats LaFerrari???
joshua.robbins.5249 Jun 07, 2013
Agreed. It, looks way better than La Ferrari.
Elias Harb Jun 07, 2013
Im a ferrari guy myself but i would go for this over the LaFerrari
Naj Obey Oct 05, 2013
Awesome car
Paul McGuire Jun 08, 2013
Good point Colby. I wonder if there will ever be such a car? Basically will there ever be another F40!
Colby Church Jun 08, 2013
Personally, I think the P1 is a beautiful car. However, I find it funny how some see it as God's gift to the automotive world, and others call it "ugly". Just goes to show that no single car can impress everyone. There will always be those few...
Cuan Humberstone Jun 08, 2013
@ Daniel, he has actually driven the car and it is not the best a Porsche could be. The heavy electric motors cannot compensate for there heavy weight! Laferrari and p1 have systems that make them quicker and better to drive
Rocco DePerno Jun 08, 2013
Only gripe are those nostrils on the hood.. Make them breathe fire and they can stay 😛
Jason Ware Jun 07, 2013
Why are the doors so chunky?
Peter Mark Gacek Jun 07, 2013
Hey the 918 can open its top, which neither of the other two can do!
Ryan Haverty Jun 07, 2013
The more and more I see this vehicle the more I like it! These pics are prob the best I have seen of this vehicle thus far!
Paul McGuire Jun 07, 2013
Porsche have described the 918 as an engineering exercise. Which is the polite way of saying, "We know the P1 and LaFerrari is gonna hand us our arse on a plate, with a side order of French fried potato chips."
Tyrone Smith Jun 07, 2013
I also think the 918 is better looking than this, but I'm glad I finally decided that I like this car.
Tyrone Smith Jun 07, 2013
I honestly think LaFerrari is amazing. In looks and performance. But this just takes the cake.
Daniel Zizka Jun 07, 2013
What do I care of what Chris Harris said ??? I criticize only the P1s esthetics because its so ugly and disproportionate... I think the performance is amazing but will never be used correctly by the owners
Cuan Humberstone Jun 07, 2013
..... This completely eliminates turbo lag and is not as heavy as Porsches solution
Cuan Humberstone Jun 07, 2013
Anyone watched Chris Harris review on the 918. I agree with what he is saying the 918 gains too much weight using batteries and 4 electric motors, this doesn't help it to be a better drivers car. The p1 uses IPAS which is a derivative of KERS.
Austin Sullivan Jun 07, 2013
No no Daniel... This is definitely better.
Garrett Middleton Jun 07, 2013
P1 then 918. Laferrari is just last, even though I respect it's performance, it's just so ugly.
Daniel Zizka Jun 07, 2013
918 Spyder of course !!! This is just disgusting... But don't get me wrong... The P1 has excellent performance and must be great to drive but it's just hideous ! There are too much lines and curves !
Braxton Omgbased Booker Jun 07, 2013
@tim knows was up the p1 is the best hyper car out that isnt just focused on top speed
Oleg Odessit Jun 07, 2013
Not sure about that, just yet
Ben Knorr Jun 07, 2013
This is gonna spank the 918 all over the track.
Oleg Odessit Jun 07, 2013
Ok Tim, dnt over do it, i do like 918)))
Tim Hooker Jun 07, 2013
Ha p1>>>>>918
Oleg Odessit Jun 07, 2013
918 fir sure, Targa
Will Will Jun 07, 2013
Daniel - the 918 spyder Tell me if I ain't right, Daniel.
Dan Marino Jun 07, 2013
It's one of those cars that you just can't stop looking at.
William Downs Jun 07, 2013
What's better?
Daniel Zizka Jun 07, 2013
@Mic, not the best car
mic.wong.5817 Jun 07, 2013
The best color
Colby Church Jun 08, 2013
I agree with Jacob. Daniel, you can't just come out and say performance is irrelevant when debating the status of two "high performance" sports cars. That just doesn't make sense. I'm unbiased here, and the P1 takes the cake all the way.
Shelby Cassandra Jun 08, 2013
Daniel should drive a moped since he doesn't speed.
Jason Ware Jun 07, 2013
I can't be around a car like this and not drive it. They'd close the shop and I'd still be there. They'd open it in the morning, turn on the lights and if be there dry humping it
Jacob Burford Jun 07, 2013
@Daniel If that's your argument, then what's the point of any car with more than 150 horsepower!
Jacob Burford Jun 07, 2013
Gorgeous rear! I love the curves!
Carlos Galicia Jun 07, 2013
Daniel you follow the speed limits?? what a gayboy haha I joke but who doesn't want the best bank for your buck? You would argue the Porsche is better due to performance if it was. But I like the 918 exhaust location and thats about
Justin Mancuso Jun 07, 2013
FUUUUUCK I was in this dealership like a week ago to see the mp4, now I have to go back.
Taylor Rosello Jun 07, 2013
Amazing! This car is incredible
Tyrone Smith Jun 07, 2013
Now this rear.... This is just amazing.
Jackson Michael Jun 07, 2013
Well that's a stupid thing to say
Austin Sullivan Jun 07, 2013
If you bought any one of these cars you would definitely bring it to a track... It's not like you wouldn't have the money to do so. But Daniel, this is the second most beautiful car out there behind the Vanquish.
Daniel Zizka Jun 07, 2013
The 918 doesn't give the same performance, but who cares ? In town or for daily use, there are speed limits so it doesn't make a difference. And for track use, I'm sure none of you idiots ever took a HyperCar to its limits... Top speed is irrelevant.
Braxton Omgbased Booker Jun 07, 2013
Bens right the 918 wont be better than this even know they gave it alittle power bump, i just can see it being as refined as the p1 for sum reason
Oleg Odessit Jun 07, 2013
Ben, wait for the final run, dnt jump to conclusions just yet
Ben Knorr Jun 07, 2013
Daniels just pissed because his 918 doesn't look near as good, and won't have a hope of keeping up in a straight line or on a track. poor Daniel. :0(
Oleg Odessit Jun 07, 2013
Yeahh im pretty sure thats what you meant
Oleg Odessit Jun 07, 2013
You mean like "blowing its pipe"?
Will Will Jun 07, 2013
He's just biased over the fact that this car ain't German, and he'll find all Ways and means to provoke it. If vw produced this under one of its brands he would be heaping praises on it.
Zeus Mocha Jun 07, 2013
The back is my favorite part
Elias Harb Jun 07, 2013
I think its absolutely beautiful.
Oleg Odessit Jun 07, 2013
Daniel, were you dropped on the floor as a kid??? What colour?? What light???? If you cnt see light on this thing you should NOT be on the road. Man your comments just getting worst day by day
William Downs Jun 07, 2013
Never seen led tail lights? Those things are bright as fuck, and its shaped by the wind so its not gonna be all sharp and edgy. It's smooth and curvy like a fine ass woman
Jeremy Russell Jun 07, 2013
This is pure, beautiful engineering. It's not a road hazard... They're called lights for a reason, because they, LIGHT UP
Daniel Zizka Jun 07, 2013
That rear is disgusting ! And how do we see the rear lights with that color ? It will provoque accidents... And it looks like it melted... I hate the looks of this car, but I'm sure it drives very well, and the performance is great ! But it's ugly !!
