Watching The McLaren F1 Vs P1 Is Every Bit Of Awesome As You Could Imagine

Get ready for a religious experience.

They are perhaps two of the most desirable cars ever built. The fact that both are supercars only adds to their exclusivity. We’re talking about the McLaren F1 and P1, two supercars separated by two decades but still maintain one simple and vital trait: a religious driving experience. We'll admit that comparing them isn’t easy. For starters, the F1 is powered by a BMW-built, naturally aspirated 6.1-liter V12 mated to a six-speed manual; an analog supercar masterpiece on an epic scale.

Its 21st century successor, the P1, is a high-tech piece of electronic supercar warfare. Power comes from a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 combined with an electric motor for a total of 903 hp. Both are wonderful. Both are extremely rare, and now Evo has driven both, back-to-back through one of southern France’s best driving roads.
