Hello everyone! As the proud sponsors of Tavarish’s remarkable automotive projects, we at Carly are thrilled to share the journey of reviving a once flood-damaged 2015 McLaren P1. This ambitious $2 million hypercar project began when Tavarish decided to tackle the challenge after the car was seen floating down a street, capturing the attention of automotive enthusiasts on social media.

The goal? To restore the McLaren P1 and showcase it at SEOK, the world’s largest car show. Tavarish began by assessing the car’s value only to discover the steep climb in prices, which hinted at the costly and rare parts he would need. Despite this, the $160,000 hybrid battery initially seemed salvageable—until closer inspection revealed otherwise.

Faced with dead hybrid batteries, Tavarish made a bold decision to remove the hybrid drive assembly entirely, transforming the P1 into a purely powerful machine. This was no small feat; it required stripping the car to its core and dealing with the intricate maze of wires, hoses, and connectors. The car was essentially crammed with components, a challenge that Tavarish tackled head-on.

At around the 06:35 mark in the video, Tavarish demonstrates the capabilities of our Carly diagnostic tool using an Audi. He starts by connecting our OBD Adapter, showcasing the ease of setup. Following the connection, he explores the extensive coding options available within our Carly App. This vivid demonstration highlights just one of the many functionalities that Carly offers, enhancing vehicle features directly through our user-friendly interface.

As Tavarish continued to dismantle the McLaren, he encountered extensive corrosion and damage from saltwater exposure. Every bolt removed and each component taken out highlighted the severity of the damage and the meticulous work required for restoration. Despite these hurdles, Carly’s technology provided the necessary insights and coding capabilities to push the project forward.

Our partnership with Tavarish on this project underscores Carly’s commitment to empowering car enthusiasts and professionals alike with the tools needed for in-depth vehicle diagnostics and customization. This journey of reviving the McLaren P1 not only tests the limits of automotive restoration but also demonstrates the transformative power of having the right tools at your disposal.

We are proud to support Tavarish as he brings this McLaren P1 back to life. His passion and determination mirror our dedication to innovation and customer empowerment in the automotive industry. Stay tuned for more updates as this incredible project approaches its completion, and see firsthand the difference Carly can make in understanding and enhancing your vehicle.
