Pride is one of the sins that are cautioned against in most of the world's religions.

So when the British automaker rang up Evo and asked if any one of its journalists wanted a go in it, of course they said yes. As a hardcore version of its most hardcore car, the P1 GTR is no laughing matter. An engine teams with electric motors to make over 986 horsepower and sends it all to the rear wheels. With that kind of grunt ready to disrupt the rear end, it's no wonder that Woking decided to stick such as large Dodge Viper ACR-esque wing at the back. But does that downforce, power, and technological prowess make the P1 GTR worth almost three times as much as the standard P1. Well, that's why you're hear to find out right?
