McLaren considering a track-only version of the P1, going after LaFerrari XX

Article by Christian A., on May 7, 2014

As you may know already, Ferrari has quite a tradition with its track-focused XX models such as the 599 XX or the Enzo XX. Last week we’ve told you that Ferrari is working hard on the LaFerrari XX and it might offer it with a turbocharged V6 engine inspired by the one used by its Formula 1 team.

It appears that Ferrari isn’t the only manufacturer that is considering track-focused versions of its supercars as McLaren is rumored to launch a special track version of its P1 hypercar.

According to Autocar, several Mclaren P1 owners are interested in a track-only version of the hypercar and asked the company to consider such a model. Still, it is reported that the new models is in early stages of development but what’s more interesting is that only the P1 owners will be able to buy such a model.

Dubbed P1 Track, the new track-focused hypercar will receive suspension upgrades, more power but also an extreme bodywork. For those who don’t know yet, McLaren already sold all the 375 units of the P1 and if the hypercar costs $1,150,000 (1 million euros) the P1 Track is expected to be more expensive.

In the standard form, the McLaren P1 hypercar uses a twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 engine that generates 737 hp and 720 Nm of torque, but also an electric motor that develops 179 hp and 260 Nm of torque.

With a total output of 916 hp and a dual-clutch seven-speed gearbox that delivers the power to the rear wheels, the McLaren P1 is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in under 3.0 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in under 7 seconds and to 300 km/h (186 mph) in 17 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited at 350 km/h or 217 mph.
