Uber users in New York have been riding in a McLaren P1
Still resisting Uber, your inner traditionalist continuing to hail traditional cabs? This may sway you. If you’re in New York, that is.
Uber is deploying a fleet of especially exciting cars – including a BMW i8, Tesla Model S and McLaren’s LaFerrari-fighting hypercar – as a promotional stunt as part of a tie-up with a TV show.
So for the last few days, a handful of lucky Uber users have been greeted by a petrol-electric supercar rather than a Prius. And as if riding through New York streets in a million-dollar McLaren wasn’t enough, the rides were free.
