Earlier today, we revealed you the first official rendering of the track-focused McLaren P1 GTR released by a dealer located in the United States. Now, McLaren officially released the rendering with its upcoming vehicle and announced that it will unveil it next month at the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

The P1 GTR is a rival to the upcoming LaFerrari XX and was conceived in response to requests from buyers of the road legal McLaren P1 for a track focused version of their car.

Set to go into production in June 2015 when the 375th and final example of the road car has been built and two decades from the 24 Hours of Le Mans win by the iconic McLaren F1 GTR, the new P1 GTR was designed and developed using five decades of race-winning knowledge.

According to the official press release, the P1 GTR design concept will be unveiled during an exclusive preview at the McLaren Brand Centre on the 18th Fairway at the Pebble Beach Lodge at 18.00 EST on Friday 15 August (02.00 BST Saturday 16 August). Still, people will be able to see it on the Pebble Beach Concept Lawn over the course of the weekend.

What we do know until now about the McLaren P1 GTR is that it will feature a widened track, more aggressive styling and slick tires, but it will also be more powerful than the road legal version.

We expect it to use the same 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that delivers 737 hp and 720 Nm pf torque on the standard version, as well as the electric motor delivering 179 hp and 260 Nm of torque.

For those who don’t know, the standard P1 delivers a total output of 916 hp and can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in less than 2 seconds, to 200 km/h (124 mph) in under 7 seconds and to 300 km/h (186 mph) in under 17 seconds, while top speed is 350 km/h or 217 mph.

McLaren didn’t reveal how many P1 GTR will leave their factory, but we do know that each will carry a price tag of 1.98 million pounds ($3.35 million or 2.48 million euros).
