According to the automaker, the 903 hp carbon fiber coupe can accelerate to 60 mph in under 2.8 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 217 mph.
As impressive as they are, both of those figures are far from the world’s best these days, but it’s the ones in between that really tell the tale of this car.
The P1 can hit 186 mph from a standstill in just 16.5 seconds, making it pretty much the quickest mass produced car ever made. It can also cover a quarter mile in 9.8 seconds in factory spec.
The 1,244 hp Hennessey Performance Venom GT is the current world record holder among “production” cars to 186 mph with a time of 13.63, but it’s an extremely low volume vehicle compared to the P1, of which McLaren will build 375 units.
A more fitting comparison is with the world’s fastest car, the Bugatti Veyron, which takes a leisurely 22.2. seconds to hit that mark, although it’s top speed of 268 mph will eventually leave the P1 in the dust.
Very pretty, but a little lacking performance wise for the buck/bang ratio. BUT, I would have to say, the "oh it's so pretty" factor is pretty damn good! Still 495bhp and an outstanding 8spd auto has to be fun!
There's a really good 340bhp V6 option for just under $70k though, if you're a tad more practical and like being seen or just like putting the top down and riding in the countryside.

Thanks Deep for your post regarding Larry. A great man and will be missed. Just found out today. So sad. LM2.......
Oh Rockstar, how you task me. I chase you not 'round Perditions flames, but surely 'til my online character can retain his hat whilst driving - as his story-mode brethren do. I shall chase you not past the moons of Nibia, but through the bogs of the Zancudo River. Though my pants may gleam in their mud-soaked sodden state, I shall persist 'til we may own more than one garage or home. The Antares Maelstrom shall be eclipsed in my ire 'til the day I own a Weazel News van and dispatch within upon my missions. Though the Grand Senora Desert may fill with rusted premium cars, I shall buy them not as you have chosen to constantly beggar me, pursuing missions that drain the bank and offer little in return. In short, you have made a nice place to visit, but I sure as hell don't wanna live there
As I made note of in my first blog post about Extra Life 2013, I am well aware that money may be an issue when it comes to aiding me with my efforts. I completely understand. What I failed to mention was the myriad number of ways in which you can help that don't involve money but instead just a few minutes of your time. Allow me to elaborate.
Are you on Facebook? Google+? Twitter? Any social media site you belong to would be a great place to start. Share links to my donation page and/or my blog posts. Make your own posts about it. Get the word out to those you are connected to via social media and encourage them to spread the word.
Do you use Twitch or any other similar streaming services? Do you post personal videos on YouTube, Vimeo, or other video hosting sites? How about taking some time to talk about Extra Life? You can talk about what Extra Life is, what they do, who they help, and why helping them matters. If people ask how they can help, you can direct them to the Extra Life website. Encourage them to talk about it. Maybe even mention my efforts or direct them to my donation page.
Friends, Family, Co-workers:
Money is seldom a popular subject, but it does come up from time to time. Charitable organizations such as this may make talking about money an easier subject to broach. I am not suggesting that you just come out and immediately start talking to everybody about Extra Life, but if the subect of charity should come up then talking about this event and/or my participation in it would not seem inappropriate. However, if you know someone(s) who you're pretty sure would be interested in helping out then I would definitely encourage you to talk to them about this even without the need of a pre-cursor conversation about money or charity.
Come Play With Me:
On November 2nd I really do intend to spend 25 hours straight playing video games and having people to play with would do a be a great help in keeping me awake and on task. Especially during the last few hours. If you are around that day come join me. Send me a message here or on Xbox live and let's get in some gaming. I don't know what I'll be playing for certain but it will be from among one of the following:
So If you want to help but you've held back because you aren't able to donate money towards my efforts, just remember, that isn't the only way that you can help me to help the kids. Your time and energy can be just as helpful to making this all happen.
I often Stumble over my words. and I was explaining to the guys that I was able to Solo a survival map in GTA 5. What I said is... "I soloed it by myself" Funny huh? Well It stuck and I think I helped that..
So I made a shirt.....
With no real missions to fail on, the gang took to the streets and decieded to have fun with trains. I dont have screen shots, as it is hard to be apart of the action and take shots too. There were about 5 of us playing on the train tracks and twitch got his truck stuck between the train and a pole and it send him flying. It was one of many instances were you had to be there.
Here are some shots taken from last night. You can click on them to get a bigger image
Hope to see lots more 2O2R people in here when the Heist missions get released. It looks to be really promissing.
