You can Uber a free ride in a $1.1 million McLaren P1 this week

You can show up to your college friend’s birthday party looking like a million bucks tonight. 1.1 million, to be exact.

National Geographic’s new show Breakthrough is teaming up with Uber for a pretty insane deal from now until Friday. From 12pm-7pm each day this week, New York users of the car sharing service can open the app and enter “BREAKTHROUGH” under the Promotions tab.

If a car is available, you’ll get the chance to take a free ride in one of the world’s top, cutting-edge alternative energy vehicles including a McLarenP1 Hybrid Supercar, Lexus CTh, Porsche Cayenne Biodiesel, Tesla Model S, Hyundai Tucson Hydrogen Fuel Cell and more. 

On top of that, the rides (required to be under 30 minutes) are absolutely free! Supply is limited, but one Time Outer already managed to score a ride in a Porsche so it’s within the realm of possibility. 

Just think, you could be the first person to take a McLaren to your local Shake Shack.
