LMP1 commuter-car

Mark Webber has gone for a tool around central London – behind the wheel of his World Endurance Championship-winning Porsche 919 Hybrid LMP1 race car. Billed as an ad for the translation of race-bred technology to the road-going Porsche Panamera 4 E-Hybrid, Webber’s Porsche took a gentle drive from Park Lane to the south bank of the River Thames.

It wasn’t an easy run for the former F1 pilot, either.

Videos show him stalling the race car several times while dealing with low-speed starts. Since performing the run, Webber has announced the end of his stellar driving career. He’s now a Porsche ambassador.
