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

PD: Because it's a McLAREN! The automotive company is almost brand new, and we've only just got used to the idea of it building clever, super-focused supercars. It needs to get a couple more of those under its belt before confusing us with this type of distraction. I also wouldn't have minded the guys doing it quite so much if they hadn't shouted about it quite so loudly. It all seems very un-British. Could have all been done privately and kept a deniable secret, like the Bentley estates the Sultan of Brunei ordered. Much cooler, much more reserved, much more tasteful.
