McLaren confirmed that its new P1 GTR track-focused model will make its world debut in March, at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. As you may remember, the McLaren P1 GTR’s design concept was previewed back in August at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

According to the British car manufacturer, the new P1 GTR promises to boast a power-to-weight ratio increase in excess of 10 percent over the standard version, to more than 700 hp per tonne. McLaren says that it achieved the performance using motorsport-derived technology and expertise.

Moreover, the vehicle uses a motorsport-optimized 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 petrol engine as well as the lightweight electric motor. The total output delivered by the hybrid system is 1,000 hp.

When it comes to design, the P1 GTR also features plenty of improvements and as you can see from the photos, it arrives with a more aggressive GT-style front splitter, reprofiled low temperature radiator ducts as well as active aerodynamic flaps.

In addition, the wing mirrors are not located on the A pillars in order to improve the visibility, while the trailing edge of the door-mounted radiator channels were extended.

The vehicle is also fitted with lightweight 19-inch motorsport alloy wheels with quick-release centre locking nuts as well as with a big rear wing fitted with a hydraulically operated Drag Reduction System (DRS).

Beneath the wing there is a carbon fiber rear air diffuser that helps the vehicle stay on the ground and very high speeds.
