The starting price is only for the. 01%-ers

If you ever needed a reason to strive for higher education or winning the lottery, the McLaren P1 is it. McLaren Automotive has gone official offering up all the details on its latest supercar, and the beast is impressive. McLaren promises that the P1 will hit 186 mph in less than 17 seconds, making it 23% faster than the legendary F1. The car has an electronically limited top speed of "only" 217 mph.
The automaker also notes that the production version of the P1 is virtually unchanged from the original design study. As you can imagine with any supercar, this beast is exceptionally far from affordable. McLaren says pricing will start at £866,000.

We have already talked a bit about the P1 in the past so you should already know that the car has a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 and the electric motor/battery system for a combined for 903 BHP. The Instant Power Assist System is a race-inspired technology that adds an additional power to help acceleration allowing the P1 to reach 62 mph in under 3 seconds. The car will eclipse 124 mph in less than 7 seconds. McLaren says that in electric-only mode, the vehicle can operate up to 30 mph with a range of 12 miles.
McLaren also promises that the P1 has the suspension and braking capability for the racetrack with braking performance on par with a GT3 sports racing car.

McLaren notes that it will only produce 375 of these vehicles to keep them rare. There are a number of color and trim alternatives that the customer can choose from including visible carbon fiber in the cabin. McLaren also points out that the car is completely customizable (depending on how big your wallet is) via McLaren Special Operations.

Pay attention to what I'm replying to.

Fuck the rest of the world. We're the last "Superpower" anyway, at least for now, shouldn't they be doing things OUR way? Hell most of them never even made it to "Superpower" level yet! Why should WE change?

Its this kind of mentality that's killing US. Because US has an abundance of natural resources, for some reason we get to dictate what the rest of the world should do. Worse yet, this superiority complex actually made us inferior by blinding us to better ideas.

Only 2~3 countries in the world, out of 108 countries, uses imperial system. Everyone else, including engineers and scientists, use metric system. Not only it makes a lot more sense, it is also exceedingly more convenient. But hey, this is 'MURICA! We're the superpower of the world, and everyone should follow us.
