The McLaren P1 will be the ultimate machine and geared as the best car in the world for both the road, and on the track. They've put tons of technology into this new machine and here's what a few of McLaren's execs had to say:

Next weeks Auto Show we'll surely be hearing about all the amazing new advances and technology behind this car that is destined for greatness. Rumors suggest the new McLaren P1 could arrive in 12 months for around $650,000. More details coming up September 27th from the Paris Auto Show.
