I'll even set the scene for you. You're cruising or speeding along in your McLaren P1. You paid $1.5 million for the thing. The hybrid tech is smart enough to patch the hole left by turbo lag. It's an awesome car, and we congratulate you for your purchase.
Suddenly, without warning, your hood catches on the air that's supposed to be whooshing over the aerodynamically-sculpted nose and is flung open, completely restricting your view of what's in front of you and increasing the risk of crashing. Sounds scary, right?
This is apparently because the P1s made from between March 1, 2013 and October 31, 2015 came with a faulty secondary hood latch that sometimes wouldn't re-engage. According , "if the primary latch is released inadvertently, the hood may open while the vehicle is moving." McLaren estimates that 122 examples have been affected.
The recall is in effect this month and McLaren dealers will replace the latch for a new one for free.
