P1 vs Enzo successor (F70/F150?) vs 918. That is a test I'm looking forward to.

It's interesting to see that all of the upcoming supercars are built around a hybrid drivetrain.

To be so ignorant as to the engineering aspects, the capabilities, and the R&D that goes into making such a vehicle is a travesty. If I have the money, the McLaren is one of the first vehicles I'd put in my garage because of the sheer complexity of engineering and mechanical process. You sir have absolutely no idea what you're talking about with such an incongruous comment.

Maybe if it was one of the 100 Mclaren F1s. That was an actual engineering achievement for its time. A street car that went on to win Le Mans. This thing doesn't even have the center driver's seat of the F1 or any of the elements that made the F1 great. Its just a souped up Prius designed to separate fools from their money, no thanks.

"A souped up Prius"

Some feign ignorance, but yours is truly undoubted.

Have you even READ about some of the engineering that has gone into the current McLaren?! This vehicle impresses me more than a Bugatti does.
