McLaren P1 Extreme Testing Conditions

Apr 30, 2013

When a company's goal is 'the best driver's car in the world on road and track' you know they are willing to test on the edge. McLaren has gone above and beyond to ensure the best possible performance and versatility of their newest model - the P1. With only a couple of months from first deliveries of the McLaren P1, meeting their previously stated goal has put the P1 through some of the world's toughest conditions.

If you can think of the most extreme place in the world to test a vehicle you might think desert, mountains or snow, Arctic Circle in Northern Sweden perhaps? McLaren has not only ensured that your new P1 will be exhilarating on asphalt, but also on pure ice.

The 903hp 3.8L twin-turbo V8 engine has proven its top shelf performance in nearly any condition, not to mention sounds incredible while doing it. But getting your hands on one of the 375 to be produced may be tough. For those who just want a taste of what it would be like, watch this video of the P1 putting on some snowshoes and getting sideways.

Be sure to look out for the P1 at the 2013 Goodwood Festival of Speed.
