McLaren gave Jay Leno the opportunity to be the first person outside the company to test drive the P1.

Jay Leno already tested one of the P1's archrivals, the 918 Spyder, and now he got behind the wheel of the latest British supercar for which he already placed an order. Before testing the F1 successor he revisited the McLaren factory and was impressed with the changes that occurred after his last visit when the MP4-12C came out.

McLaren Automotive's Operations Director, Alan Foster, says 61 people will initiate P1 production very soon in a ten-step process at a rate of one car per day for 375 days.

After a helicopter ride to the Dunsfold Aerodrome in Surrey which many of you know as the Top Gear track, Jay Leno had the chance to be the first person outside McLaren to drive the P1. As you would imagine, he was more than impressed with the car's performances and managed to obtain more info about the car from McLaren's chief test driver Chris Goodwin.
