All in all, 75909 is great for the price, but we do wish that LEGO had made it a bit more accurate. We do recommend this set.

This is a very cool car and at first when I saw this car I thought it was Bumblebee from Transformers with somewhat of a new look but this McLaren P1 is very cool and I really like the snowboard on the back used as a spoiler which is nice and the build looks just awesome.This and the other cars for this theme are very cool and if you have a city it is a cool way for them to drive around in an awesome ride.

Recommendation: meh 4.5 / 5 by Allen "Tormentalous" Tran

Overall, I do like the McLaren P1 (75909) set a lot even with the slimmer size. A couple of nice details of the set includes interchangeable wheel style and the adjustable rear wing. There are a lot of stickers but I feel that it gives the car some details that the plain look doesn't provide such as the the two bonnet vents on the hood. Motor junkies will most likely want to pick up this set and it definitely makes a great display piece.

Recommendation: no 4 / 5

This set is a cool merging of race cars and LEGO building. The car itself has lots of neat and realistic features that will appeal to kids as they imagine different race scenarios. This will also appeal to adult car fans and collectors.

Recommendation: meh 8 / 10 by John

Overall, it's a pretty cool set to have. A great colour, some hinting of curves, and definite playability means it's a great set to get, and pretty cheap at $15. It's also a great chance to get some nice parts, including the new wheelsets. The stickers are always a bit of a downer, but with race cars, there are bound to be stickers-a-plenty.

As far as a car is concerned: I quite like it, but it was not as interesting to put to gather as the Ford GT.

Out of the 3 hybrid supercars I have reviewed so far (LaFerrari, Porsche 918, and McLaren P1), the McLaren P1 model is probably my favourite. The yellow/black theme is really nice to look at and the black wheels are pretty sexy. At around 9 cents per piece this set isn't that expensive either. While the model is not comparable to the real car, I think it represented the overall shape fairly well.

There's a lot to like about the model: its vibrant colour scheme and curved body which, while not really very much like the real car, looks great. For me, though, the fact it's too narrow mars its overall appearance and I can't look past that. Converting it yourself to 8 wide is not really possible, unfortunately, given the width of the canopy, so we're stuck with it.

If you're a fan of supercars, the McLaren P1 may be right up your alley. It may not capture it perfectly, but it's still a sleek little model. At $15 for 168 parts, it's also not a bad Flame Yellowish-Orange parts pack, with quite a few unique and uncommon elements in the color. If you're not a fan of the car or looking for more pieces in Keetorange though, you can probably pass on it.
