Deadmau5 gives Darude a ride with his McLaren P1 Hypercar – Video
With his incredible fourth studio album on the store shelves since late August 2015, Finish electronic dance music mega producer Darude has enough time to check out his competition for a change. And since famous DJ Deadmau5 is an artist with such a generosity the two got together recently for a friendly talk and a long trip in McLaren’s halo hybrid hypercar.
As usual, Deadmau5 aka Joel Zimmerman takes a while to get things going before actually hitting the open road and starting the joyride. This time around, it appears the Canadian mega DJ forgot one of the codes for his internet connection, a problem he fixes later. The first thing all car lovers notice is clearly that awesome exhaust sound only a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 gasoline engine can make.
As we all know, the power generation twin turbos boost the gasoline engine at 2.4 bar to deliver 737 horsepower and 531 lb-ft of torque. Add that output with an in-house developed electric motor producing yet another 178 horsepower and 192 lb-ft of torque and you’re driving a monster.
The two engines develop 916 horsepower and it may not sound as much as say what Koenigsegg or Bugatti is putting out, but we’re quite confident none of us would say no to the chance to ride along with it. The two music industry veterans also discuss random topics such as favorite Netflix shows, similarities between the Finish landscapes and the Canadian ones, or if Game of Thrones is a good show.
