Today I managed to blag a ticket into the unveiling of the new 2010 McLaren…

There was something magical about looking at a white cloth for 30 minutes wondering what exactly will be underneath.

Normally at events they use a model car, but not for the launch, this was the real thing

Actually, it’s the only one at the moment… the others are yet to be assembled.

The thing that was most amazing was the level of detail in the car… a team of people somewhere have made a conscious decision about every dimple, every vent, every fin…

Even every flat surface would have been tested to see if flat was the right choice.

It must be a mind blowing amount of work.

Needless to say Lewis and Jenson came across as down to earth genuinely nice guys (as always).

Pure magic.
