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'll give you that. McLaren is trying to have its cake and eat it here: unveiling the X-1 with grand ceremony at Pebble, then rapidly attributing the design to the anonymous owner when a section - OK, most - of the media started tutting. Still, the odds of stumbling upon an X-1 might be higher than you think. McLaren says its tooling will stretch to perhaps half a dozen more X-1s, given sufficient demand - and the owner's approval. And there are more bizarre MSO creations in the pipeline. Mackenzie confirmed there are other ‘enquiries' underway, and said McLaren would like to "have at least one X-1-type project on the go at any one time". Be afraid.
