Although we're clear on what the McLaren P1 is packing outside, we still have no idea what's happening in the cockpit. McLaren has given us a teaser with a short clip of the reconfiguring, digital dash gauge.

From the 47-second video it appears that in one setup there's a 9,000-rpm redline, with a gear indicator and "Manual" identifier to the right. Or if you're feeling racy you can have the gear indicator in the center and a row of green, red and blue lights, Formula One-style that replaces the tach display above, the speedometer then relegated to the corner. The gauge can also show an image of the car and the rear wing deploying.

Have a watch in the video below.

      Wow. Another digital dash and another supercar with left hand drive. Way to innovate McLaren! I can't wait for them to brag about their automatic adjustable aero and carbon ceramic breaks. Welcome to 2006 McLaren. All kidding aside the P1 is a beautiful car but I just don't understand it. Nothing really differentiates it from the already saturated supercar market. This isn't 1996 anymore. There are a lot of legitimate competitors now. It needs center drive.

      Another automatic-only computer that the Kardashians can drive fast. The F1 had all three pedals, you sat in the middle, and the exhaust note was unforgettable. This is just more of the same crap everyone is pushing these days.

        Yes HOORAY for 50 year old technology that keeps us from going faster, in fact lets ditch disk brakes and go back to drums while we are at it, leaf springs and bias ply tires as well. Don't you dare call yourself a performance enthusiast.

          There\'s a difference between an performance enthusiast, and someone who wants a true driver\'s car. Sure, the Lamborghini Aventador is high tech and outperforms many other cars around the track, but that doesn\'t make it a \"driver\'s car\". Guys like Randy Probst would rank the Subaru BRZ ahead of the Aventador as a driver\'s car! Even if the P1 outperforms everything on the road today, if it\'s all tech and minimal driver, what\'s the point? The soul of the F1 was amazing! Three pedals, no driving aids, center seat, gold-plated engine bay, ALL MOTOR!! I don\'t know if you think that that\'s outdated, but I\'d still take that over a twin-turbo\'d, super electrogadget-aided, no 3rd pedal P1.

          Iruka, you forgot the sound it mad. When Tiif drove the Mclaren F1 Gt I had goose bumps. This one just does not stir me at all just like the current MP4. And yet the 458 stirs my soul. English logic or Italian spirit, I'll take the spirit.

      I saw the title and the thumbnail and thought YES! lets see a modern interpretation of gauges with similar layout to the Honda S2000! Focused on the tach and 9000rpm redline! bring it on!.......but then they showed that....that sucked.

      Whining about 3 pedals, seriously? You all do know it’s the 21st century right? There is going to be advancement in technology. How do you like that 4G phone of yours? Are you all against progress? With the advent of super-fast computing we are now able to produce a car like the P1. No human can out-shift the latest transmissions. It’s literally impossible. The lag time between the brain and muscles and manual actuation of the shift lever just takes too long. How can you be mad that technology has superseded biology? Also, I hope you all aren’t seriously saying the S2000’s dash was as good as the P1’s. Heck a 1978 Caddy has a digital dash too. So what, you can’t keep on using the tech? Nowadays they are fluid, high def , and infinitely configurable and connectable to all our modern devices - which is how it should be in a 21st century car. Pretty soon you all are going to be mad that LED headlights aren’t yellow enough. And actually LED headlights will be outdated once BMW releases their laser-based headlights. What then?

        We don't need to out-shift computers in order to have fun. That's what owning a fun car is all about; having fun. Automatic supercars are for guidos and Kardashians to tell other people their car shifts gears faster, as if they understand why. If you like driving, and judging by your automatic Dodge Magnum, you don't, you'll understand why there's nothing that can replace a manual transmission. For the record, I hate that every single cell phone on the market today is a square with one or two buttons on the front, and I miss the innovative designs and materials that some flip and slide phones used to have.

          Preach on brother! I miss super cars with 3 pedals, and I miss slider phones with touch screens and a keyboard.

      Remember when this was offered on a $30,000 sports car 13 years ago? Yeah...thanks McLaren for the modernized S2000 dash.
      MASTER!

      Hope it doesn't really look that shitty.
