looks great- but more hybrid tech? the article states dynamically rewarding... generally when I think hybrid I think zzz like my mom and dad's his-and-hers Prii. would be nice to see if someone actually made a hybrid that can drift and is interesting to drive

IDK, I may be comitting heresy, but the macca has a stupid Pokemon face? The 918 gives me the chills, it's absolutely amazing...

This based just on looks of course...

The Hyper cars are getting unbelievable. If you have 2mm to spend on a car the options are intense.

Lets not forget the Enzo replacement.

Also I call them Hyper Cars, because I still like to think these are super cars.

Agreed with all.

While the McL doesnt look so great I can imagine they can make a good driving car. The 918 in simply stunning and you know they are going to do amazing things with it. Im sure McL will follow in their footsteps.

You should read up on the KERS system used in Formula 1. It is the blueprint for the technology featured in the P1, as well as the upcoming Enzo replacement from Ferrari.

There's nothing zzzzz about adding a shot of 160 extra ponies to the 803 you already have from the 3.8L V8!

I read a good article on the Pagani. It has MB AMG TTV8. Needless to say, the car is amazing.
