As we told you, McLaren will build a track-focused version of the P1 hypercar and the car was officially confirmed last week. Today, McLaren announced that the track-only edition of the P1 will be called McLaren P1 GTR. Of course, this is not an ordinary name, as the new P1 GTR pays homage to the iconic McLaren F1 GTR, 20 years on from victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The new McLaren P1 GTR will offer even great levels of performance than its road version and an impressive power output of 1,000 hp. In addition, the P1 GTR will feature a widened track, a more aggressive styling as well as slick tyres. Pricing will be impressive too, as McLaren will ask 1.98 million pounds ($3.35 million or 2.48 million euros) for a P1 GTR.

For this amount of money, McLaren will include a tailored programme created for each customer to build driver capability. What’s more interesting that McLaren will also include exclusive consultations with the McLaren driver fitness team and Design Director Frank Stephenson, privileged access to one of the McLaren racing simulators, and participation in a minimum of six dedicated international drive events to be held at some of the world’s most iconic Formula 1 circuits.

McLaren didn’t reveal how many P1 GTRs will be build but we do know that only Mclaren P1 owners will have access to them. This means that McLaren will select the P1 GTR owners from the 375 people who bought the P1.

For those who don’t know, the “standard” Mclaren P1 is powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that generates 737 hp and 720 Nm of torque, as well as by an electric motor that delivers 179 hp and 260 Nm of torque.

With a total output of 916 hp, the McLaren P1 accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 3 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in under 7 seconds and to 300 km/h (186 mph) in no more than 17 seconds. Top speed is electronically limited at 350 km/h or 217 mph.
