Ronaldo & Jenson Button take the McLaren P1 for a spin

September 7, 2014

As part of a TAG Heuer promo called ‘Don’t Crack Under Pressure’, Real Madrid soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo takes the McLaren P1 hybrid hypercar for a drive with F1 champ Jenson Button.

The McLaren P1 is one of the most serious cars on the market, producing 674kW of power from its 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 and electric hybrid system. Lucky for Ronaldo, he is one of the lucky 499 awaiting delivery.
