    McLaren X-1 concept officially unveiled in Pebble Beach.

    Specially created for an anonymous car enthusiast

     

    Detailed performance specifications were not released, but McLaren said the car weighs approximately 1400 kg (3086 lbs) and "shares the same the major mechanical components as the 12C, including the twin-turbo 625 PS (460 KW / 616 hp) engine."

    I believe I just vomited a little in my mouth. McLaren would have done well to keep this one to themselves and the private owner and pretend they never helped create this.

    This car is like that girl you had sex with late at night because you were horny and just needed to get some, but you would never admit to it nor acknowledge her in public.

    Funny, the rims are somewhat similar to the ones seen on the 918...

    Couldn't he just get himself the F1 ??


    Re: McLaren X-1 concept officially unveiled in Pebble Beach.

    I like it ! Why spend 5 million to have something that any " tuner " can do to impress the acne crowd ?
    This is something to thumb your nose with and cause exactly this kind of reaction and works quite well in that regard and you all have been reeled in.
    The point of these FACTORY built one-offs, like the Ferrari P4/5 built on an Enzo, is to design something qurky so it is memorable and then hide it away after a year for a long time and in 40 years, it will sell on the Monterey weekend for $$$$$,so it is a good long term investment for someone's pocket change play money.

    Re: McLaren X-1 concept officially unveiled in Pebble Beach.

    I certainly don't like it...but I have to say it has a certain '30's look about it, like the exotic one-off's from that era.

    Yeah:

     

    "One of our clients who already owned a McLaren F1, a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren and now a 12C, wanted a unique car. The conversation began with our Executive Chairman Ron Dennis almost three years ago − before the 12C was even launched. The client wanted a machine that had all the capability of the 12C but wrapped in a unique body that reflected his needs and personality."

    Re: McLaren X-1 concept officially unveiled in Pebble Beach.

    In 30 -40 years , when all cars will have " active " rear skirts in the wheel well area for aero/ fuel efficency/cooling, this vehicle  will look " modern" and " way ahead of its time " at  vintage auctions .

    OTOH, what goes around, comes around. My first ride home as a newborn from the hospital was in a mid-1950s Ford station wagon identical to this pic that had removable skirts covering  the rear wheel arch openings !

    It´s hard to believe McLaren has made such monster !!!!!

    Re: McLaren X-1 concept officially unveiled in Pebble Beach.

    I like the front facia less the exaggerated and front extended and protruding fenders. I can honestly say I like it more than standard 12C front end which I find bland and dulls. 

    Everything else - kill it with fire!
