Got to Check Out the Mclaren P1 in Person

Well I didn't, but my dad got invited to a private showing in Taiwan. I'm so jealous









He wants one, but I think they're all sold out haha.

Wow...I was never a huge fan of the styling of the MP4, I felt it was to subtle but the P1 looks amazing and what a supercar is suppose to look like.

Any shots of the interior?

Also, if he can afford a P1, can you tell him to get a better cellphone?

lol everyone here bags on my cell phone from my previous posts. I already got rid of it and bought myself an HTC One. My dad is pretty stingy and hates buying me anything, so I got it myself. I also bought a real camera, so when I go back in December, I can take much better photos.

If he doesn't buy you a phone it makes him stingy? How old are you? Not trying to be offensive, but my family's well off yet my father would rather me learn the value of a dollar on my own.

My guess is 19. People in their 20s tend to shift away from highlighting their parents' accomplishments and focus on their own.

BTW, my dad can beat up your dad.

He's a young kid with crazy access to these types of cars. Regardless of who is paying for them, I actually appreciate the pics this dude posts.

If you read my other posts, you'll notice other forum members saying things like "Your dad drives a Ferrari and you're still rocking an iphone 4S?" or "Your dad drives a McLaren and you roll around in a $50k BMW? That's just cruel!"
I constantly have to tell them that he wants me to buy things on my own; give the 2 posts in my signature a read, hopefully you'll understand where I'm coming from a lot better.

First off I'm 26, and I can't afford these kinds of cars. I don't have many accomplishments yet that allow me to afford them. This is a car forum filled with enthusiasts. If I can get access to these kinds of cars, why shouldn't I want to share them with other members?

I get where you're coming from, it's just the "stingy" line that sparked my reply. You'll thank your father in the future when it comes to building your own success and earning your material wealth on your own merit. My father followed the advice of his business friends (owners of multiple companies, multi-millionaires that don't give their children a dime above the norm). I've had the chance to learn what it's like and I'm all the more fortunate for it now.

But back on-topic: give me a P1 please.

I have to say I do NOT like the front of that car at all. It looks like Don Lino from "Shark Tale" smiling for the camera. McLaren will never, ever top the F1.

Hmmm.
Anyway, I am sure you guys can goog maclaren dallas .
The black is sinister but really hides the gorgeous lines imo .
I am under the impression it is for sale.

That rascal will be gone in a hummingbirds heartbeat if it is.

The dark purple color featured in the P1 going around in Europe is to die for. Love every bit of the P1 all the way through. Prefer to have sections of bare carbon show on the body as well - it provides a nice contrast. Not a big fan of the lighter colored P1.
