    When it comes to race cars and super cars, McLaren is by far the best and most consistent. They dominated Formula 1 in the 80s, decided to make street cars and made the F1, a street car that won Le Mans, still the fastest naturally aspirated car for over 25 years, also the most appreciating car ever increse of over 1000% in under 30 years. Then the make a more ludicrous car, the P1. And they haven't made a below 8/10 car yet, from the mp4-12c to the Senna and my personal favourite 765LT

    P1 is faster than a Senna around the Nurburgring and Silverston race track which very hypercar and supercar have to take to set a lap time. Even when the P1 is 6 years older. The P1 never cease to amaze me even to this day the P1 to my perspective is the most beautiful piece of art the world has ever seen.

    This. This car is what sparked my love for McLaren Automotive. The P1 is seamless. Comfortable. Fast. Damn near flawless. And God damn, it’s fast as hell. This engineering is impressive. The electric motor pushing the car through gear changes, the engine pushing it 90% of the time. The British engineering team that built these magnificent pieces of artwork, deserve their own medals. They are responsible for making a powerhouse that is stylish, sleek, clever, and so god damn fast. 6 years old, and STILL looking like a vehicle that could be rolling on the streets today, labeled as “new.” The sheer tech at this vehicle, would make someone amazed, even by today’s standards. Thank you, Top Gear, for giving the love this car deserved.
