McLaren P1 GTR track special teased
During the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, we will see the unveiling of a number of cool vehicles, not the least of which will be the new McLaren P1 GTR. This track-focused version of the road-going P1 was created in response to owner requests and will only be offered to a select group of 375. While McLaren has yet to release tech data on the P1 GTR, the sketch clearly shows it will have a more aggressive aero package highlighted by a large fixed rear wing in place of the auto-deploying unit on the street car and a much more aggressive diffuser.
The P1 GTR's reportedly will have a lower ride height and be fitted with race slicks. It's believed total output of the GTR's gas/electric hybrid powertrain will rise from 903 to 986 horsepower and that this track-day variant will be even lighter than a baseline P1. McLaren has confirmed that P1 GTR will production will commence next June shortly after the final P1 road car rolls out of the firm's Technology Center in Woking.
For those with enough disposable income to acquire a P1 GTR - the price is expected to be somewhere north of $3 million - the perks of ownership will be impressive. Beyond an organized racing series contested on a number of F1 circuits, McLaren promises "unprecedented access to the technologies, resources and expertise which have helped develop and train Formula 1 champions" as part of a comprehensive support program. We'll have full details on the new McLaren P1 GTR when it's officially unveiled on August 15.
