Jenson Button Buys a Fancy New McLaren P1

Jenson Button, McLaren Grand Prix driver, has bought a McLaren P1 hybrid hypercar. The 2009 F1 World Champion has owned McLarens, staying loyal to the brand of his race team, since 2011.

We all know the P1 is a very expensive car, but with an price tag of £1 million this would have been no bother for Button who topped the The Times Rich List for UK sportsmen with an estimated worth of £63 million, ahead of all those pesky footballers.

Jenson Button’s Garage

In 2011 Button had his first McLaren, a MP4-12C. But the McLaren wasn’t the only car in his garage, he also had a 1978 Ferrari 512 BB, a Mercedes C-class DR 520, Bugatti Veyron and Nissan GT-R.

Button has been seen on the road in a selection of McLarens over the years, we can only assume these are just loans or cars he has borrowed off the F1 boss.

McLaren Specs

As a reminder, the plug-in hybrid McLaren P1 has 727bhp and 719Nm from a 3.8 twin turbo V8, followed up by the 176bhp and 260Nm electric motor. Combined, this makes a ridiculous 903bhp and 978Nm and will do 0-60mph in around 2.8 seconds

Do you think Button will find the McLaren P1 a challenge to drive compared to his F1 car?

    Loving the all black on the P1, especially with the touch of yellow on the brake calipers. Jensen obviously has good taste in cars and colour schemes!
