MLB All-Star and Los Angeles Angels pitcher, C.J. Wilson knows all about exotic car ownership. Despite selling a lot of his auto arsenal, the car addict is still left with a McLaren MP4-12C, an ultra-rare Carerra GT, as well as other Porsches and Ferraris.

Wilson’s pockets are deep but this isn’t always enough to secure ownership of all exotics. After experiencing the way in which Ferrari operate after buying his 599 GTB Fiorano, Wilson vowed to never own a Ferrari again. Although he had the cash on him to buy a brand new Ferrari 360, the Italian company wouldn’t sell him one.

Lucky for Wilson, he’s always had a soft spot for McLaren going back to the days of Aryton Senna. When Wilson heard the rumours about a new McLaren hypercar, he went straight to his McLaren guy and managed to secure a spot on the 375 place list. McLaren simply wanted a cool $1.15M and list of the previous cars he had owned (one being their MP4-12C), and voila, they accepted and Wilson now owns this 903-bhp space fighter.

Here we see Wilson testing the P1, along with all the other lucky owners invited by McLaren to see just what they are getting for their money. rating -> 9/10
