Tempting supercar lovers, McLaren has released a short video showcasing its new hybrid P1 in action during testing.

This testing program is being carried out to ensure, as the company said, that the McLaren P1 delivers on the target of being ‘the best driver’s car in the world on road and track’…or a frozen lake, for that matter.


As part of durability testing, the development team recently traveled with the McLaren P1 to the Arctic Circle, in northern Sweden where the car was put through its paces and tested to the extremes.

The culmination of this testing will be showcased over the summer, when the McLaren P1 will publicly demonstrate the power available from the mid-mounted 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine and highly effective electric motor.

As plans for the 50th anniversary celebrations for McLaren continue, it has also been confirmed that the latest model from McLaren Automotive will feature as part of the planned activities at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, in the UK.

The short film, seen below, can also be accessed through the company’s dedicated web page – www.youtube.com/McLarenAutomotiveTV.
