Having leapt to stardom after appearing on the big screen in 2015’s James Bond SPECTRE, the Jaguar CX75’s speed, agility and low aggressive aerodynamics are perfectly matched with the McLaren P1, which began making its way to retail customers in the UK in October 2013. It is considered to be the long-awaited successor to the McLaren F1, utilizing hybrid power and Formula 1 technology.

These two Super Cars can now go head-to-head with the brand new ARC AIR app, making the race feel more real than ever before.

Jaguar lacks bite and disappoints

The set is a disappointment. The Jaguar is so sensitive to speed that it fishtails, slides off the track and careers into the skirting board so easily it isn't possible to race and becomes very frustrating. The McLaren eclipses the Jaguar both in corning and the straights due to it's heavier weight, superior magnetism and outright speed. So unfortunately to level the playing field and make it fun I have to buy a new car.

Great starter set

Simply put great value for money in a starter pack. The McLaren P1 is slightly faster around the track no matter how hard we try and buying a couple of more straights and hairpin borders will complete a stunning track. The ARC unit works well with the iOS app, albeit a free running Training mode would be nice, instead of say 15 laps training race, which actually doesn't differ from Grand Prix mode. In turn you'll have to start over Training far to often, and in stead it would be sufficient to log best and last lap.
