McLaren P1 makes a brief appearance
The latest chapter in the story of McLaren Automotive, the McLaren P1, made a brief appearance this morning at the McLaren Technology Centre, driven by none other than 2009 Formula 1 World Champion Jenson Button.
This formed part of the launch event for the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes 2013 Formula 1 challenger, the MP4-28. Vodafone McLaren Mercedes driver Sergio 'Checo' Perez arrived at the event in a 12C Spider finished in heritage McLaren Orange, while his teammate followed closely behind in a camouflaged XP prototype version of the McLaren P1. These two models brought proceedings fully up-to-date as they joined a spectacular grid of racing cars showcasing the brand's history, and kicked off a year of 50th anniversary celebrations.
