“One goal: to be the best driver’s car on road and track.” So said the scribbled notes from a meeting in 2009 when McLaren’s boffins sat down to sketch out a successor to the legendary F1 supercar.

Writing it down is the easy part, of course. Where McLaren is different is that it has turned that lofty goal into a reality. With McLaren, we have come to expect success, be it from its racing glory, road car expertise or myriad other projects to which it is applying its expertise.

The P1 is not merely a staggering car; it is also a standard bearer for all that McLaren Automotive stands for. It rekindles memories of the passion and performance of the F1, crowns the technical achievements of the 12C and underlines the levels of prowess that are being poured into future models. New car stories don’t get any bigger.
