Almost as real, though less buyable unless you inhabit the own-a-football-team financial stratum, is the McLaren P1 Concept. The final car will hit the road next autumn. It'll look very similar, except it'll have even more air intakes around the nose. By then we'll know about the engine, and exactly how will arrive at the otherworldly 600bhp per tonne it's already claiming. And we'll learn about the interior too, as the Concept's was hidden by deep-tinted glass. It's concept car as a means to tease.
