Currently reading: Free McLaren P1 book with this week's issue of Autocar
We go behind the scenes of the new McLaren P1 to bring you an exclusive free book on the development of the hypercar

Readers of this week's Autocar magazine will get a free 64-page magazine on the passion and people behind the making of the McLaren P1 hypercar.

To create the magazine Autocar's team of journalists and photographers was granted exclusive behind-the-scenes access to the entire team behind the McLaren P1.

The magazine tracks the McLaren P1's genesis from concept to reality, telling the story through the eyes of the people who created the ground-breaking hypercar.

Highlights include the previously untold story of how the concept for P1 was born, a fast track lap of the Nürburgring with chief test driver Chris Goodwin, a stint of hot weather testing in Nevada, the truth behind the P1's shrink-wrapped design, an insight into the key technical elements behind P1 and interviews with the men and women who were instrumental in making the hypercar a reality.

Every story is complemented by stunning photography, much of it revealing details of the car in hitherto unseen detail.

We also celebrate the 50th anniversary of McLaren, outlining the numerous landmarks and achievements of its Formula 1, racing and road car divisions and profile the man who founded the company, Bruce McLaren, with access to photos from the historic LAT motorsport photgraphic archive.

The McLaren P1 magazine will be sold with Autocar magazine in the UK this Wednesday, 6 November.
