When I initially read the stats, I was pumped to see 737bhp! That's a massive number!

...then I kept reading...

916bhp!!!

Even uglier than the 12C. It's a good thing you won't see it very long.

Agreed, Gordon Murray must wonder how he got stuck designing silly city cars.

I can only imagine driving this thing.

I wonder if Exotics Racing out in LV will get one of these, they have the mp12 so hopefully they will.

Geez, with that kind of torque and only rwd, first gear must go to like 90-100 mph!!! ZO6 goes to 60 mph with "only" 500 ft/lbs and weighs about the same. On most tracks, you'll probably just be sitting around in 2nd gear which will be good for 60-140 mph. LOL

It has the potential to be the first production car under 7 minutes on the Nurburgring. Cant wait to see the run.

For the price of the P1, you could have a couple of each...
