Garage, street and track
Chris Harris recently acquired his hands on the new McLaren P1 for an episode of “Chris Harris on Automobiles.” This particular auto is 15 months old, with forty,000 challenging miles utilized, but that didn’t preserve Harris from adding a number of sideways miles of his own.
Harris talks with McLaren’s Chris Goodwin about the tires, hydraulics, and of program power, ahead of he requires it out on the streets of the Abu Dhabi. Later he hits the Yas Marina Circuit.
For a swift refresher, the $ one.2 million P1 tends to make 903 hp mixed from its twin-turbo V8 and electric motor, along with 663 lb-ft of torque. A 6-velocity dual-clutch transmission sends energy to the rear wheel.
Harris likes the automobile on the street. He says the ride, in the softest suspension mode, is company, but fully livable. Nevertheless, he is driving on the almost pristine streets of the UAE.
At about the 18-minute mark, he hits the track. We’re not going to go via the listing of superlatives, or expletives, that come out of his mouth. But we will say that he loves it.
Verify out the video for all the slow-movement, flame-throwing, sideways-drifting action.
