The P1 drives effortless in that video. The control he had was effortless. I just wish that McLaren was able to team up with BMW again and put in a BMW V12 again for tradition sakes.

Wow, I've never seen John Davis look so young! :) "It's from West Germany." Great timing with the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. $35,000 in 1983 was approximately equal to $83,645. But for 150-160bhp in the North American version is kind of disappointing especially for that price. Still, you could… » 11/11/14 10:38pm 11/11/14 10:38pm

It definitely hasn't aged well but at the time it was mind-blowing and revolutionary. It could be that I was an impressionable high-school kid or that there was nothing quite like it especially because Tim Burton was considered the wackiest mainstream director of his time. Even with those caveats, I think it should be… » 11/10/14 5:39pm 11/10/14 5:39pm
