Video: Kenny Brack’s Blistering Lap in the McLaren P1 LM!

No stranger to McLarens and quite handy behind the wheel, Kenny Brack shows us how it’s done with a 1,000-horsepower P1 LM at Goodwood’s legendary hillclimb. The sleek, stylish, and menacing hypercar exists to astound on track and manages to wear a license plate. As far as monsters capable of errand runs go, there aren’t many that can drop jaws quite like this road-legal P1 GTR.

The P1 LM borrows the focus of the GTR, but benefits even more in the aerodynamic department. Larger canards, an extended rear wing, and a heftier splitter purport to generate even more downforce than the track-only variant. Interestingly, the car doesn’t alter much from the GTR where the interior is concerned — only a few specks of alcantara on the seats and the steering wheel do the differentiation. Throw in two floor mats, and it is laughably similar. Though the P1 LM is a road car, don’t expect anything but a very spartan interior.

Menacing and stylish, the racy P1 LM brings track-suited performance to the street.

That monstrous 989-horsepower drivetrain exists, and Brack’s willingness to exploit all those ponies is evident in the first corner. Once a racer, always a racer — and the fearless, affable Swede spins the rear tires out of the first corner gleefully. In contrast the F1 GTR which Brack also contended in several years prior, the P1 LM seems to put the power down more effectively, and looks more composed over the bumps, but then again, this is a road car. Just barely.

While Brack’s time was just pipped by the outstanding Gobstopper 2, there’s no denying that this car, with its Batmobile-looks and outrageous engine note won the fan’s vote. Plus, this car could get the groceries, three speeding tickets, and a new girlfriend in the course of thirty minutes. Let’s see the Gobstopper do that.
