Track-only McLaren P1 GTR revealed in production form for Geneva debut

This is the production version of the McLaren P1 GTR, which was first shown as a design concept last summer in Monterey.

Based on the already sold out P1 supercar, the track only P1 GTR has 10 percent more downforce than the road car, weighs 50kg less and also packs extra power.

Set to rival the Ferrari FXX K the P1 GTR will be shown with a livery inspired by iconic McLaren F1 GTR, chassis #06R at the Geneva Motor Show next month.

Notable changes compared to the road car include a front track, which is 80mm wider, aggressively profiled front splitter, while the lower bodywork is trimmed with a sleek aerodynamic blade as previewed on the design concept, which cleans the flow of air along the car’s flanks. The side windows are now motorsport-specification polycarbonate with a sliding ‘ticket window’ on the driver’s side. The chemically toughened glass panels in the roof have been replaced with carbon fibre panels and at the rear is a fixed-height wing.

All this also sits 50mm lower to the ground, riding on centre-locking 19-inch motorsport alloy wheels shod with Pirelli slick tyres. The lower bodywork is trimmed with a sleek aerodynamic blade as previewed on the design concept, which cleans the flow of air along the car’s flanks.

The 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 hybrid powertrain has been updated for track use. The petrol engine delivers now 789bhp (up from 727bhp) and the electric motor adds another 197bhp (up from 176bhp) for a combined output of 986bhp.

The McLaren P1 GTR joins the road-going McLaren P1 in the Ultimate Series and will be available in very limited numbers, costing obviously more than the sold out standard P1.
