A flame-shooting McLaren P1 was caught on camera while doing a few laps of the Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

Two factory McLaren P1s made a trip to the Formula 1 Yas Marina track in Abu Dhabi for a meeting with 12C owners who were invited to take the flagship McLaren for a hot lap. The sinister black P1 exhibited a bad tempter as throughout the video you will notice an almost constant output of flames through the centrally-positioned exhaust pipe where temperatures reach 900 °C (1652 °F).

Aside from shooting up flames and providing a wonderful soundtrack, the McLaren P1 is seriously fast as the most recent rumor indicates a Nürburgring lap time in "six minutes and 30 something" which would make it a lot quicker than the Porsche 918 Spyder (6m 57s), the current record holder for the fastest car in the world around the 'Ring with global road homologation.
