What we present here is 19-plus minutes of behind-the-scenes, making-of Top Gear with the plug-in hybrid McLaren P1 the star of the show.

As the video poster states:

"The making of the Mclaren P1 review for Top Gear UK today at Spa Francorchamps. You will see some nice action with drifts/powersliding and with flames from the exhaust"

"The creators of the popular BBC motoring show, with James May, Richard Hammond and Jeremy Clarkson, currently working on the 21st season."

"Jeremy Clarkson was present and it was not his lucky day!?"

If you've ever wondered what it's like to try to capture one of the world's most capable plug-in hybrids on camera and in action (even by helicopter), then this video is for you.
