McLaren P1 Private Showing, pics inside

Today I got a chance to be at a showing of the upcoming McLaren P1. This car is astonishing to say the least, and the pictures truly do not do it justice. Also got a chance to sit inside and take a peep at the interior, beautiful to say the least Anyways I just wanted to share with you guys who might find these pictures interesting!

Wow. That's quite a lot to take in (TWSS). Looks insane, especially at the rear.

Center seating position?

Imagine the performance will be incredible.

lovely cars, but mclarens seem to lack the soul that others (pagani is a fine example) has..
no doubt, it'll be wicked fast, but it lacks emotion.

not my thing

Is it me or do the calipers look rather small. It looks fast standing still.

The seating is the same as in the mp4-12c, the aero behind the body design is purely for function. It generates around 1300 pounds of downforce at high speeds

I think it's just shadows and dark rims making it look smaller. If you look at picture 4, it seems to be as long as the guy's shoe. And in 12 you can compare it to the size of the wheel...assuming they are 20", it's gotta be 9" long. And that's the rear...the front is massive.

Not sure I like it. F1 shape was way better. Does it have full-LED headlights, or Bi-Xenon? Also, hope it gets other rims. By the way, they looks small for the wheelarchs.

Really awesome car. I never really warmed to the looks of MP4-12C (worst name ever) and I see them daily as my office is on the same road as the dealer prep/inventory center. They literally have 6-10 of them on the lot at any given time. This, however, is a very different beast. It looks fantastic!

Are you guys giants or is the car pretty small?

Im sitting down next to the car and I'm 6'3", the car is really low to say the least, the rear of the car comes up to a little bit above my knees, when you're sitting inside though, there is a lot of room, so someone who might be 6'7"+ wouldn't have a problem in it

They are using the same block from the 12c but it will be bored out and pushing some nasty power!

I'd like to see them daily. I see 458s and I find them boring (in looks).
