McLaren Automotive’s chief test driver Chris Goodwin Dubai - Arab Today McLaren Automotive’s chief test driver Chris Goodwin will unveil the groundbreaking McLaren P1 at this year’s Dubai International Motor Show. Goodwin has clocked up more than 4,000 hours behind the wheel as  part of the development programme for the McLaren P1, which had a clear goal to be the best driver’s car on both road and track, said a statement. The rigorous development programme has seen the car tested to the extremes across the globe – from the frozen lakes in the Arctic Circle to the searing heat of North America’s west coast, as well as on the toughest roads and racetracks, it said. The Dubai International Motor Show 2013 takes place at the Dubai World Trade Centre from November 5 to 9. Goodwin, 46, will meet McLaren P1 customers at the event and talk about his involvement in making this next generation supercar a reality and why he believes it will give drivers the closest ever experience to that of getting behind the wheel of a Formula 1 car. Goodwin said: “Once you have driven the McLaren P1 you will see why this ultimate supercar cannot be compared to anything you have ever driven – the McLaren P1 is without a doubt the most exciting, most capable, most technologically advanced and most dynamically accomplished supercar ever.” “There are two key factors which make the McLaren P1 so great.  Firstly, the IPAS powertrain provides not only power that will blow you away, but it is available instantly. On top of that the RaceActive Chassis Control suspension system is a breakthrough in technology so that the 903 bhp can be complimented with superb handling.” McLaren Automotive recently confirmed the performance figures for the McLaren P1, showing that the third model in the range accelerates to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.8 seconds, 200 km/h (124 mph) in 6.8 seconds, and 300 km/h (186 mph) in just 16.5 seconds. The McLaren P1 is the first of the next generation of ultimate supercars in the industry to arrive in the Middle East market, with first deliveries to customers in the region taking place by the end of 2013. At the Dubai International Motor Show 2013, McLaren will also showcase the award winning McLaren 12C and 12C Spider models; this will be the first time the full McLaren range is shown together in the region. Ian Gorsuch, McLaren Automotive regional director for Middle East and Africa, said: : “Having Chris with us in Dubai will allow people to hear the lengths we have gone to in creating the McLaren P1. He is arguably one of the finest test drivers in the automotive industry, and has been racing with McLaren GT in the 12C GT3, so what he has to say really means something. “The Dubai International Motor Show is a proud occasion for all of us at McLaren Automotive as we continue to make great strides forward in our development of innovative technology translated into comfortable and usable exhilaration for our current and future range of groundbreaking supercars for the road.” Source: TradeArabia
