Description: When supercar spotter Shmee150 went cruising around Woking in a Ferrari 458 Spider, there was only one thing in mind: track down the new McLaren P1. As the video shows, the plan played out beautifull...

@Ashton, Heroin addiction is more of an adventure
Wyatt Gordon Feb 22, 2013
Oh ok that makes sense, Im not a huge motorbike freak, so whichever one it is on the right kinda looked like a front 3/4 view of an old Morgan 3W
William Downs Feb 22, 2013
Nah 2012 Yamaha fz8 and my buddys 11 zx6r
Wyatt Gordon Feb 22, 2013
Patrick and William, thank you very much... Btw I meant to ask, is that a 3 wheeler in William's propic?
Ashton Summers Feb 22, 2013
This is sad, very sad. Can you all do something better than argue about a carbon Cereal box toy. Give Alcoholism a try...idk.
Zaire Wilkins Feb 22, 2013
Lmao we having therapy?? Now
William Downs Feb 22, 2013
We only hate people when there doing stupid shit* cough* jack *cough*.. As long as your smart enough to learn from your mistakes were all forgiving people
Patrick Schalk Feb 22, 2013
Wyatt, I will say that you have gotten better. Keep it up. Wish Jack could do the same.
Wyatt Gordon Feb 22, 2013
That to state one of the most nasty, opinionated things Ive said on here in a long time: Jack, shut the f*ck up. Honestly, you're so retarded.
Wyatt Gordon Feb 22, 2013
Ok, I just wanna say, I know Im not the uh... most liked person... On this app, but Ive gotten better about having an open mind (I still dislike the GTR though), and I feel like you guys are starting to tolerate/like me a bit more, so Im going to use
William Downs Feb 22, 2013
I know that.... I was agreeing with u kid
William Downs Feb 22, 2013
What are u taking about ?
William Downs Feb 22, 2013
Oh shit jack brought up a good point, koenigsegg really needs to start track proving the Agera, cause every other car they have made did fantastic on the track.
Aaron Abely Feb 22, 2013
I hope you're right and the P1 is the end all be all for all time. Cause I don't think you're mentally stable as it is, if it got beat I'm sure your parents would need to invest in lots of counseling.
Aaron Abely Feb 22, 2013
Oh my god jack you explained ONE aspect of a car and its performance! You absolutely know best!!!!1! Seriously kid, just keep drinking that kool-aid. Fan boy.
Brendon Davis Feb 22, 2013
That's incorrect about what Tim did. Tim (Shmee) went on a drive with his friend who was driving the 458 just to have fun in it, and spotted the P1, but missed it. They saw it an hour later and decided to chase it.
Patrick Schalk Feb 21, 2013
Bryce, don't crush my dreams like that!
Jackson Michael Feb 21, 2013
@Bryce After a certain point it changed from an argument over a car to an argument over stupidity
Bryce Damnjanovic Feb 21, 2013
Okay funny part is. People are fighting about a car, that if they ever could afford, they wouldn't be able to afford in time to buy what they are fighting about. Just cars guys. We should be happy that they are still around and still kick ass.
Jack Howard Feb 21, 2013
You're like a crazy church person who raises their hands to god when singing but instead you're doing it to Ferrari and Mclaren.
Jake Dula Feb 21, 2013
Jack, you have a really over-inflated opinion of yourself, and I can't manage to figure out why... Just shut up and leave the intelligent world alone.
Justin Routh Feb 21, 2013
And you still havent backed an argument with evidence other than "its gonna be the best mclaren race in f1!"
Justin Routh Feb 21, 2013
@Jack not one single person has agreed with you so far, youre not even old enough to drive, do you really think you know more than all these car guys that are telling you youre wrong?
Jacob Burford Feb 21, 2013
Anyways, can't wait to see this car in action!
Jacob Burford Feb 21, 2013
How are you two still fighting!
William Downs Feb 21, 2013
What are u retarded, do u just love sounding like a complete idiot, never said McLaren wasn't performance oriented, not in the least bit... U really... Really really need to learn how to read and actuly understand what your reading
William Downs Feb 21, 2013
And its funny u hate on the gtr because it uses computers but praise McLaren and Ferrari for doing the same thing.. And that's not just u a lot of people that hate the gtr love super cars witch are no different then the gtr
William Downs Feb 21, 2013
People seem to forget that Chevy has just as much racing expierence as Ferrari and McLaren, just because we don't use fancy materials and high revving engine nor cost a fortune to buy and maintain, doesn't make it any less of a performance car
William Downs Feb 21, 2013
Jack u really should learn to read, never have I said I hate super cars, I don't like Ferrari, but I do respect them, I love McLaren.. But I also just love cars, it doesn't have to be an all out performer, I had a kia forte koup for a few years and that car was a blast. I've also driven a vast variety if cars including Ferrari
Zaire Wilkins Feb 21, 2013
Jack just no
Jackson Michael Feb 21, 2013
Or dress like a terrorist and visit texas
Ashton Summers Feb 21, 2013
Since most of the arguments are eye rolling boring and predictable. Its time for a bet. McLaren guys vs. Other hypercar guys. Loosers have to fly to New York and walk around Times Square dressed as Nazi's.
William Downs Feb 21, 2013
U keep dreaming jack, that's about all your good at
Tyler Howell Feb 21, 2013
haha not at all....
William Downs Feb 21, 2013
He just looking to open another can of virtual whoop ass on him self again
Tyler Howell Feb 21, 2013
People are always looking to start something...
Description: Prospective buyers, like the one we suspect was videoed driving the camouflaged model, are unlikely to have driven anything like this before - the F1 car for the road will have devastating performance...

@will, I'll give it the credit that its capable. I'm just not a big fan of it. I like the P1 a lot more styling wise but still.. Meh.
Jack Howard Feb 22, 2013
Tell me what time the Mclaren got Jack.

Jack Howard Feb 22, 2013
READ WHAT I SAID DUMBASS. I said I got that time from laptimes.com AND Wikipedia. Christ dude read what people say.
William Downs Feb 22, 2013
Woah there buddy, mp4-12c is far from crap, may not be the fastest car but its still really damn fast and sexy as hell, and sounds fantastic
Aaron Abely Feb 22, 2013
That's what I thought I think the Z06 had aluminum but they've switched to CF with the carbon package. And jack, no one cares what you say anymore. 458>mp7-12crap
William Downs Feb 22, 2013
Your rite the hood is cf, read wrong
Wyatt Gordon Feb 22, 2013
Aaron, it is CF, except for the clear window. Thats just plastic lol.
Aaron Abely Feb 22, 2013
Isn't the ZR1s hood CF? I've seen a few at car shows and coffee and cars meets and they ha CF hoods. Or is it just a CF hood lining?
William Downs Feb 22, 2013
Well Chevy did make the move to carbon fiber with the z06 and zr1, a lot of people forget that 80% of the zr1 shell is carbon fiber, the hood is aluminum and the rear bumper fiber glass, and now that carbon fiber manufacturing is a lot cheaper expect it to just get better, I
Jacob Burford Feb 22, 2013
times, it is pretty amazing!
Jacob Burford Feb 22, 2013
Just stop Jack! I love Ferraris and McLarens as much as the next guy, but you are way too biased and close minded to make a good argument! No way would I consider a ZR1 on the same scale as the McLaren as an overall car, but when it comes to lap time
Wyatt Gordon Feb 22, 2013
Weight materials could be useful.
Wyatt Gordon Feb 22, 2013
William said a while down this argument "just because we (Americans) don't use high tech and light weight materials, doesn't mean our cars are slower". Yes, but if you did they could be even faster. Maybe not computers. I dislike those. But the light
William Downs Feb 22, 2013
Jack are u aware that the 12c was developed and tested on thetop gear track, the fact that it wwon't shouldn't be a surprise, that wwould be like Chevy going to the Ferrari test track and killing them on there home turf... So McLaren has 1 track and the vette has every other what's your point?
Patrick Schalk Feb 22, 2013
Jack, look at times for other tracks. Go to fastestlaps.com.
Jackson Michael Feb 22, 2013
"No corvette can challenge this beast, nothing can." I do believe that was a comparison....
Jackson Michael Feb 22, 2013
Actually even Colby doesn't say that he loves this car
William Downs Feb 22, 2013
any car can be beaten, every gen of the corvette has been a vast improvement over the last gen, the c6 z06 and zr1 already proved they could dominate the super car world... U think the c7 gen won't be faster y?
William Downs Feb 22, 2013
Every one apparently miss understands what we mean, besides Colby no one said the vette will beat the p1, we said the future c7zr1 more then has a chance to compete with it, and to think other wise is just retarded
John Patten Feb 22, 2013
GUYS, I love the vette and the viper. BUT I think this will be faster. Even though its ugly. And don't say I hate American cars because I am american
William Downs Feb 22, 2013
Let's not forget that Chevy already killed the 12c on the track, so why wouldn't a c7 zr1 be able to compete? Let's hear the facts jack since u apparently know everything... What the zr1 power output, for that matter what engine does it have, how much does it weight... Oh yeah all things u don't know
William Downs Feb 22, 2013
and if your euro cars are so much better how come our vette and viper out perform u and will out last u... Only thing euro cars have is fancy materials, high price tag, and high cost of owner ship... So how are euro cars better... Oh yeah there not... Just to euro snobs like u.
William Downs Feb 22, 2013
Ferrari thought that with the enzo and Chevy beat that down also... Just cause we don't use fancy materials and high tech equipment doesn't mean we make slower cars.
William Downs Feb 22, 2013
Again jack u don't know how to read, never sad the corvette was better then the p1, I said the vette does stand a chance against it, and only idiots would think differently... Why can't a vette beat the p1... Because its american and doesn't use f1 tech...
Jack Howard Feb 22, 2013
And I'll throw in some random insult for good measure, SHITHEAD.
Jack Howard Feb 22, 2013
And Justin, you really are not giving credit where credit is earned. Also not sure why you jumped my shit about Corvettes when I haven't spoken at all about them either.
Jack Howard Feb 22, 2013
I'm guessing you didn't understand what my comment meant. I simply was responding to his claim that Europe makes the "best" cars. They have cars that are best at their performance of intended function but they don't have the best cars in general.
Justin Barter Feb 22, 2013
And Hovie, you must be Jacks slightly more stupid brother: you really going to compare a modified Lotus (European/British car) to a McLaren? So the Venom GT is again an incredible straight line car; what other advancements does it offer as far as technology and efficiency goes? Everyone knows the US builds great muscle cars, but that's it; oversized engines and inferior build quality. I know this ...
Justin Barter Feb 22, 2013
Of course , how true Jack; if you consider a car that is 'reasonably' fast in a straight line, has inferior build quality, an inferior (oversized) uneconomical engine, a car that offers nothing new technologically and would get its ass handed to it in every single aspect other than its price point, then you're right; a Corvette is a MUCH better car.
Lou Guerrero Feb 22, 2013
Not doing this again. Goodnight.
Jack Howard Feb 21, 2013
It depends on what you consider best...
Jake Dula Feb 21, 2013
OMG, jack, ur an idiot. Actually, you are THE idiot. The big idiotic idiot king of the idiots. You're such an idiot it made me sound like an idiot trying to explain how big an idiot you are... That's a really big idiot.
Michael Spochi Feb 21, 2013
Would have loved to see the, on a highway with no speed restrictions :P
Ryan Spencer Feb 21, 2013
Both the P1 and 458 sounded mean...
Ashton Summers Feb 21, 2013
Hovie, some people prefer AID's to a Filet Mignon.
Donald Chip Schofield Feb 21, 2013
Was the camera dude in a 458 spider??
Ashton Summers Feb 21, 2013
That Ferrari sounds do good. And that broken down car the won't start is funny too.
Nick Rios Feb 21, 2013
Damn. Looks amazing. Anyone think Ferrari will outdo the p1 with Enzo replacement?
Rahul Patel Feb 21, 2013
Lmao hear and here
Patrick Schalk Feb 21, 2013
Haha he doesn't know how to spell hear.
William Downs Feb 21, 2013
Because car buzz says so it must be true...god your an idiot
Tyler Howell Feb 21, 2013
your comparing a 100 thousand dollar car to a million dollar one. of course the Mclaren will be the better car.
Thibault Leroy Feb 21, 2013
I wonder what people (who arent car people) think when they see this car.
Ahmed Al Harthy Feb 21, 2013
I find the title to be misleading !! Just sayin
Zane Turner Feb 21, 2013
Same, it's still more interesting to the P1 in my opinion.
Malachi Monteiro Feb 21, 2013
Why does the Ferrari keep distracting me in this picture?
William Downs Feb 22, 2013
Cause he so quick to try and be a smart ass instead of just reading and understanding what others are talking about
Jack Howard Feb 22, 2013
And Jack, that's what Patrick JUST said, "in terms of speed." Why don't you pay attention to what people say?
Jack Howard Feb 22, 2013
Not really sure why the Venom is being compared with the P1 but whatever.
Patrick Schalk Feb 21, 2013
Also, check out EVO magazines latest review of it. I swear the guy almost craps his pants driving it. It's an awesome video. I'd recommend it. He compares it above Pagani and Koenigsegg in terms of speed.
Patrick Schalk Feb 21, 2013
It had a pretty fast lap and the Goodwood Festival of Speed in Europe. There's videos all over YouTube about it. Check em out. It's based on a Lotus if that give any hint of how capable it is. Go check out Hennesseys site and watch some vids.
Jacob Burford Feb 21, 2013
@Jack Howard No, not that I have heard of, but aparently it is pretty capable!
Jackson Michael Feb 21, 2013
On a brighter note, this car is insanely beautiful
Jack Howard Feb 21, 2013
Is the Venom even fast around a track? I've never seen any lap times or videos for it.
Jake Dula Feb 21, 2013
Love how jack spews crap until someone asks for proof or something to back up his stupid claims and then he runs away to Wikipedia to find his next load of garbage.
Jacob Burford Feb 21, 2013
@Patrick It might not take it in the straight line, but this is going for blistering track performance that nothing can match!
Jacob Burford Feb 21, 2013
Looks great even in Camo, which is the best Camo ever!
Jackson Michael Feb 21, 2013
If it isn't I'm sure at least one tuning firm will replicate it
William Downs Feb 21, 2013
God that camo needs to be a factory option
Jackson Michael Feb 21, 2013
Where are my stats jack
Ryan Faber Feb 21, 2013
god this car is just amazing. who cares if it will or will not break records. just look at that thing..
Ben Knorr Feb 21, 2013
I agree. If the pagani huayra can beat the v8 atom (top gear test track) then the P1 should do so with ease.
Patrick Schalk Feb 21, 2013
Haha Jack you don't even have any stats on this. Gonna have to be some big shoes to beat the Venom.
Stephen Cobbs Feb 21, 2013
@Wyatt This will be faster than the Ariel Atom V8. No doubt in my mind.
William Downs Feb 21, 2013
And the lap times on various tracks shows its not the vette and viper that need to evolve there performance its every one they beat
Miranda Nearlydriftingondreams Pavelle Feb 21, 2013
It's ridiculously low to the ground... Speed bumps must be a nightmare.
William Downs Feb 21, 2013
And never said the c7 "will" beat the P1 I said the zr1 stands a chance, only and ingnorent little child wouldn't under stand the difference.. And car can be beaten by any one, and chevy has just as much racing expierence as anyone in the game and the corvette and viper have a proven formula, same reason Porsche are always the same they have a formula that has proven successful why change it
William Downs Feb 21, 2013
Jack your so dumb its not even funny, u argue with us but apparently u never learn to read correctly... Your to stupid to under stand when your wrong... Never said anything bad about the car, all I did was shoot down every false claim u made with facts from the real world not wikipedia.
Jackson Michael Feb 21, 2013
Because you spew crap about this car that's unrealistic. They've said all along they wouldn't go for any speed records (Venom) and YOU DONT HAVE ANY STATS
Jackson Michael Feb 21, 2013
Alright jack what's the 0-60, top speed, and tell me some lap times. Now do the same for the C7 ZR1. I don't even like the Vette much but you need statistics to back up such a claim.
William Downs Feb 21, 2013
Omg that stance with the wing up is rediculious, such a sexy beast
Wyatt Gordon Feb 21, 2013
I doubt this will be faster than an Ariel Atom V8, or if Radical gave their cars more power.
Jackson Michael Feb 21, 2013
It's still way too soon to say that
