McLaren P1 Flamethrowers and More FunFebruary 13th, 2014
Oh, to be Tim “Shmee” Burton. This guy has managed to find a way to spend his days checking out the world’s most beautiful and exotic sports cars, and we’re jealous. Recently, he’s been spending some quality time with McLaren’s awesome P1 “hypercar”, showing off exactly what the 903bhp, $1.4 million hybrid beast can do.
We’ve assembled a few of his recent P1 videos here, our favorite being the one above – which shows two of the cars zipping around the track at Abu Dhabi’s Tas Marina, blowing massive flames out of their tailpipes. Those beautiful blue flames hit temperatures up to 900 degrees, so they’re perfect for cooking your lunch in a hurry, should you find yourself without a proper stove.
In addition to the flamethrower video, be sure to check out Tim’s walkaround of the P1; a quick look at the car’s Race Mode, which lowers the car by 50mm and activates the rear wing to add 1300+lbs. of downforce at 160mph; and the big finish – a hot lap in this awesome car:
If there was ever a real world Batmobile, it would be the McLaren P1.
