The supercars are not just fast machines, but art in the purest form. And it's not all about the speed and looks, but the complexity that goes towards making one supercar. Now consider this - a tail bulb of your car is not working. You will go to a local mechanic and he will replace it within minutes costing you negligible amount. But, that's not the case with a McLaren.

This one of its kind incident took place in Minneapolis, where a tail bulb of the beautiful looking and limited edition McLaren P1 went faulty. Unlike an ordinary, which we mentioned earlier, a technician was flown in for this project. And he ripped-off almost the whole car just to replace the single tail bulb. Just imagine the cost of replacement.

But why so much fuss for changing a bulb? Well, apparently to reach the taillight of a McLaren P1, one has to take off the entire rear clamshell. And how time consuming and tedious this process is, can be seen through the images we have posted. And this is probably the first time we and you are seeing a McLaren in pieces.

A closer look at the images can reveal how much detailing has been put to design this car. One can see the numbers of radiators, extensive use of carbon fibre, and exhaust. As a refresher, we must tell you that McLaren P1 is limited only to 375 units and we try to cover all the McLarens spotted on the road as these exotic beauties are rare and special.

In the past we have covered the McLaren owned by Formula 1 superstars - Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button.
