Fast & Curious: the McLaren X-1
McLaren's X-1 has polarised the office. Time to have it out with some verbal fisticuffs...

SP: I asked Mr Mackenzie exactly that. His response? "I'd guess there probably is a point at which we'd say no, but we haven't reached it yet." Which means, I'd guess, we can expect a few more extravagant creations from MSO. But, unlike Ferrari, McLaren doesn't have 60 years of road-car DNA to work with; it has only ever created three models - the F1, SLR and MP4-12C. By cooking up something at the oh-bloody-hell-that's-a-bit-out-there end of the scale, they've opened up a huge middle ground between the po-faced 12C and the daft X-1.
