McLaren previews track-only P1 GTR concept ahead of Pebble Beach debut

McLaren has released a design sketch of the upcoming track-only P1 GTR that will be revealed next month at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in concept form.

According to McLaren, the P1 GTR was conceived in response to requests from buyers of the road legal McLaren P1 for a track focused edition of their car.

Production will be very limited and will start when the last road legal P1 rolls off the production line sometimes in mid 2015, with each one priced at £1.98m. In comparison the road-going model is priced from £866,000 and 375 units will be built.

The 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 engine is tuned to produce 1,000PS (986bhp) – up from the road legal cars output of 903bhp (916PS).

There are also race-proven slick tyres on new wheels, a widened track and more aggressive and distinctive styling as you can see from this design sketch. There is plenty of carbon fibre, along with a massive rear wing, huge rear diffuser and a pair of exhaust tips.
