The McLaren P1 Test. On Road and Track - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
Chris Harris drives the new $1.2 million McLaren P1 at the Yas Marina Grand
Prix circuit in Abu Dhabi UAE. Before taking to the track at night, Chris
Harris chats with Chris Goodwin, the Chief Test Driver for McLaren
Automotive to discuss the technology of McLaren's latest offering, perhaps
the definition of the modern day hypercar.
Fair warning, the McLaren Chris Harris drives in this video is the XP7, the
pre-production prototype for P1. The car has had a long life over the past
15 months, driving around the world and clocking over 40,000 hard miles.
Alfa SZ V6 3.7L 24V with a Adaptronic 420C ECU.
This 3.7L engine came standard with a Gotech ECU. We made a plug and play
solution for this car so we were able to use the wire loom that comes with
this engine and upgraded the ECU to a Adaptronic 420C for better emission
and idle control.
We also upgraded this engine with bigger injectors.
Finding a tipo 105 Giulia Sprint GT racer
the middle of grey winter I went with Klaus Hahn to Automobili Stelvio in
Måløv near Copenhagen to watch him check out a 1966 Alfa Romeo Guilia
Sprint GT Veloce. Later we drove to his Prato Verde garages to take a look
at his GTA replica-hotrod racer. I am trying to find my grounds in the
search for a racer that can be modified for FIA App K pre-1966 Gr 1 racing
- and it is difficult.
