Chris Harris - McLaren P1 Hybrid [VIDEO]

Chris Harris takes the McLaren P1 hybrid hypercar for a drive around the UK in typical wet British weather.

The car is obviously a gorgeous piece of automotive engineering but watching this video you could be forgiven for forgetting the P1 is a hybrid.

Despite the fact Harris talks about throttle response and low-end torque through-out the video, he makes no mention of the torque-fill provided by the 130 kw / 257 Nm electric motor (approx the same output as a BMW i3), right up until the the last minute of the film when Harris hits E-mode for a short demo just for novelty value.

By comparison, Jeremy Clarkson's Top Gear review of the BMW i8 was much more detailed.
