The Mclaren P1... I was going to say its quite the epic thing, but then spellcheck didn't recognize the word "Mclaren." It didn't recognize "spellcheck" either, though, so I won't think too much of it.
About this creation
The front. Mighty difficult, this. The whole first day of building was just me going "Hang on... that's not even right!"
The squiffy side. Which still isn't. Just a bit. Talking in three. Word long sentences. Is my hobby. Psycin' you out.
Aerial side view! I stood up!
No really, I did stand up. Even in the blazing heat of mid-May.
Call for back up!
I apologize for any unexpected injury that pun may have just caused...
The trunk. Not much in there, and admittedly not too challenging. Only one picture of it open on the whole of Google, too.
Butterfly doors. Not gullwing doors in anyway. Unfortunately, the Great Google-dini has no pictures of the hood open. It does, however, show the precise location of all the panel gaps.
No glovebox, the real one doesn't appear to have one. No panel gaps and no pictures of one. Why Mclaren, WHY!!!!?!?!?!?!?!?!!! WWWWHWHYYWHHYWHYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!???
Sigh... at least I can haz purty doors.
And now, to disprove the theory that time slows down to compensate for the speed of light limit to an object's velocity. Time can't stop, ergo an object could not continue to accelerate indefinitely even in hypothetical space. First it would max out the speed of light "limit," then it would cease to exist as a function of time. Which can't happen, methinks. Totally out of place caption away!!!
Tssss! I don't know how you made it, but you really succeeded to make an ugly car look great! I think the P1 is not a beautiful car (OK, Lamborghini's new "ideas" are really extending the line with the Veneno & Egoista). Your LEGO version is a true marvel, though. Interesting techniques (you never fail to surprise with that), a totally recognizeable shaping and as a topping you integrated working butterfly doors... phew, that IS something! I hope you'll keep this? Best, Jens
A grand looking machine. The curved yellow roof struts give a great shape and like the way that you've built the air scoops in the doors and bonnet. The way the doors open is mad, like something from a spaceship. Great work.
Very interesting building technique you used here. It looks hard to do but i particularly like the interior. The steering wheel used as additional commands behind the real steering wheel is a great idea. I'm sure I never seen that before. Well done indeed!
An absolutely brilliant build Senator! I can totally understand what the first day of building was like you. It is about time I saw a good..... no, wait..... an excellent MOC from you! And I think that there wasn't need for any backup..... unless the engine caught on fire.
I like it

In spite of the apparent issues with reaching light speed and time ceasing to exist, the fact that there is no glovebox sickens me! Mclaren think that they can just unload these poor excuses onto the masses without the ability to properly store our driving gloves!?! Rubbish, I say. Rubbish. Nice car though. Keep on truckin'. ;)
