McLaren P1 Inspired by Alain Prost Debuts at Goodwood
McLaren just debuted a very special version of its P1 this weekend at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. It was designed by McLaren Special Operations (MSO) and inspired by legendary Formula 1 driver Alain Prost. That inspiration can be seen in the colorful and patriotic color scheme that decorates this car. Its red, white, and blue design was inspired by the helmet worn by four-time Formula 1 world champion Alain Prost. The white car has mostly blue graphics with just a few red highlights.

Other than the noticeable cosmetic changes to the McLaren, the car is essentially a standard P1 underneath. The hybrid powertrain has a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 that is mid-mounted and produces 726 horsepower. An electric motor adds in another 176 horsepower for a combined 902.
The Alain Prost P1 won't be the only car that will be on display at this year's Goodwood. The company has said it will also be showcasing the McLaren F1 GT chassis #58F1GT. This is one of just three that were every built, designed to homologate the F1 GTR Longtail during the 1997 season.
