Video: Jay Leno Buys Then Drives McLaren P1
Which plug-in vehicle would Jay Leno buy?
The obvious answer is the Chevy Volt. He owns one, absolutely loves it and its his daily driver.
But what if Leno were to buy another plug-in. What would it be?
For the man with mounds of cash, the choice is the McLaren P1.
Yep, that’s right, the P1 will soon be parked next to the Volt in Jay Leno’s garage.
At $1 million, few can afford a P1, but if you so desire supercar performance in a plug-in hybrid package, then its either the P1 or Porsche 918 Spyder you’d buy.
For Leno, the P1 it is.
Outside of McLaren’s engineers and execs, Leno becomes the first person to drive the P1 and its caught on video here.
“It’s pretty much a road-going Formula One car, and after a factory visit to see how it’s made, Jay is the first person outside McLaren to test-drive this extraordinary 903 hp plug-in hybrid.”
That basically sums up this edition of Jay Leno’s Garage and soon Leno will find himself behind the wheel of the P1 on a daily basis. Consider us jealous.
