McLaren P1 (Yours for Only $1.1 Million Dollars)

Posted By Barry Ritholtz On September 14, 2013 @ 6:15 am In Weekend | Comments Disabled

This is the first time the carbon, black P1 has been shown undisguised and on the road.

And McLaren will only make 375 models of the P1, so it will be one of the most exclusive cars of modern times.

Which makes it all the sexier.

For testing, McLaren took it to the track, too.

The P1 is the successor to the F1, which was the fastest production car when it was first made in the late '90s.

The newcomer won't be faster than the current champ, the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, but it will be incredibly powerful.

And McLaren says it's designed to be a "driveable car" — so non-professionals won't immediately crash it.

To put the P1 to the test, McLaren headed to the deserts of California, Nevada, and Arizona.
