McLaren might have a reputation for strait-lacedness, but there's real drama as the P1 readies itself for a full-bore run. When stationary, the McLaren hunches itself 50mm, and the wing stretches to its full 120mm extension, before you're ready to launch.
And what a launch. With a mile and a half of tarmac ahead of you and every drop of petrol and electric power deployed, the P1 catapults at the horizon's vanishing point with a violence that you feel in every sinew of your being.
