McLaren P15 in the works, might be more powerful than the P1 GTR

Autocar has got some juicy rumours for us regarding a new McLaren hypercar. The British publication has inside sources claiming that a new model will be added to the Ultimate Series just after the P1 hypercar, and they claim that it will be the “most extreme, track-focused car” they have ever made. This high-performance machine, dubbed “P15” is McLaren’s “track weapon”, is expected to be even better than the P1 GTR.

We are aware that the P1 GTR, excluding the LM model, was restricted only to the track due to its power. But apparently, the P15 (which is even more powerful) will be road-legal. It will be given a biturbo 3.8-liter V8 engine that has been modified, instead of the 4.0-liter inside the 720S. And this powertrain can generate 789 horsepower, which is even greater than the P1’s 727 horsepower with its combustion engine. Though keep in mind that the P1 can be pushed to give out a maximum of 903 horsepower with its hybrid powertrain.

Insiders say that the P15 will have a total curb weight of below 1,300 kilograms (2,866 pounds). That makes it 247 kilos (544 pounds) lighter than the P1, which means that it can go so much faster with the lighter body. All the lost weight results from losing the electric motor, and the use of a one-piece carbon fiber tub like that of the 720S, fully covered in carbon fiber.

Vorsteiner 570-VX dreams of being a McLaren P1 GTR

Vorsteiner has unveiled at the 2016 Specialty Equipment Market Association (2016 SEMA Show) styling packages not only for the McLaren 570S but also for the McLaren 570GT. With these style packages, the entry-level supercar of this Woking-based company can be transformed to an excellent vehicle that looks a lot similar to the P1 GTR.

For those not familiar, the Mclaren P1 GTR is considered as one of the most outrageous modern vehicles there is. This model was designed not only to allow for record lap times but to pump the driver full of adrenaline. Since this version is designed for the tracks, the hybrid powertrain gets power courtesy of the twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 engine with output of 789 hp (800 PS) and electric motor which can offer 197 hp (200 PS).

Overall output of the powertrain is therefore at 986 hp (1,000 PS). This racing-only version, when compared to the standard P1, has the track in the front wider by 80 mm with the ride height lowered by 50 mm. Its entire body has a number of aerodynamic features like the wing in the rear which has been positioned above the bodywork by as much as 400 mm. Because of this, the McLaren has a body that can create downforce of 1,455 lbs. (660 kg) when running at 150 mph.

A road-legal McLaren P1 GTR up for grabs online for only $4.3 million

One of these track-only cars is McLaren’s P1 GTR. McLaren decided it be best that the P1 GTR be a limited-edition vehicle and built only 45 examples of this monstrous machine. The road-legal P1 is a member of the Hypercar Holy Trinity alongside the Ferrari LaFerrari and Porsche 918. Now imagine the power of that street-legal car and the monstrosity that is the P1 GTR – the latter being the most chosen one for performance enthusiasts.

Now, in a way, it won’t be a waste if the P1 GTR was constantly found on various circuits in the world, but it would be a lost opportunity for an enthusiast not to be able to witness the power hidden in this vicious track beast. So, what better way to witness the splendor of the P1 GTR than to submit it to a conversion specialist. It’s a tough task, but it’s what their engineers are trained to do.

Over time, the number of converted P1 GTR’s has increased. Although there hasn’t been any confirmed ratio of track-only versus converted P1 GTR’s, it seems like more and more owners are sending their goodies out to conversion specialists. For whatever reason these conversions are for, we wouldn’t know, but what we’re pretty sure is that it will cost more than it originally did.

Street-legal McLaren P1 GTR on sale for 6.34 million euros

A car dealership that markets mainly exotic vehicles in Italy is claiming that it is selling a road legal McLaren P1 GTR. The price is said to be set at 6.34 million euros which already includes the 22% VAT. This offering garnered more interest with reports saying that this version was made by none other than Lanzante.

If proven to be true, this would be the first time a P1 GTR is being sold by someone other than McLaren. However even if true, many are saying that it may not be comparable to the actual McLaren P1 GTR.

For those who are familiar, the Design Concept was first shown to the public last summer during the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. After that, the P1 GTR underwent rigorous and extensive testing around the world. As such, it is expected that the actual car would have a better cooling system and an optimized aerodynamic performance as the result of different enhancements.

Production version of the all-new McLaren P1 GTR was officially revealed ahead of the 2015 Geneva Motor Show and as expected, the vehicle looks amazing. Showing a livery inspired by the iconic McLaren F1 GTR, chassis #06R, the new P1 GTR will premiere alongside the recently announced McLaren 675LT.

Looking just like the concept version, the track-focused McLaren P1 GTR is 50 mm closer to the ground when compared with the standard McLaren P1, its front track is 80 mm wider and features centre-locking 19-inch motorsport alloy wheels wrapped with Pirelli slick tires.

The P1 GTR retained the lightweight windscreen from the P1 road car, which is 3.2 mm thick, while the side windows are made from motorsport-specification polycarbonate and fitted with a sliding “ticket window”.

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.

McLaren has finally revealed the first photos showing the interior of its new P1 GTR a.k.a. the track-focused version of the P1 hypercar. As you can see, the P1 GTR will not be the most comfortable vehicle as the interior as it was stripped of all but the essential items in order to keep weight to a minimum.

The MonoCage chassis is taken from the road car and has a total weight of just 90 kg, including the upper and lower structures, roof snorkel, engine air intake cavity, batter and power electronics housing.

The first thing you will notice inside is the new steering wheel, which is based on the steering wheel of the 2008 Formula 1 MP4-23 car. Just like in the F1, the key switches are located on the centre of the steering wheel, while the DRS and IPAS buttons were also retained. In addition, we find DTM-style seats as well as full-six-point motorsport harnesses.

McLaren P1 GTR design concept was unveiled back in August at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, but the British company will bring the new vehicle also in Europe at the Chantilly Art & Elegance concours. In addition, McLaren also revealed the first photos that show the vehicle in race track design camouflage as the initial testing phase begun.

For those who don’t know, McLaren’s P1 GTR will be available only to customers who bought the street version and will cost a hefty 1.90 million pounds ($3.35 million or 2.48 million euros). In addition, the vehicle features a widened track, new styling and slick tires, as it can be driven only on the race track.

Under the hood, there is the same 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine found on the standard version, delivering 1,000 hp. The McLaren P1’s engine delivers 737 hp and 720 Nm of torque, but the vehicle also carries an electric motor that generates 179 hp and 260 Nm of torque. The total output delivered by the hybrid system is 916 hp and the vehicle is able to accelerate 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 under 17 seconds.

As expected, McLaren officially introduced at the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance the design concept of the P1 GTR. The new vehicle will be the successor of the iconic McLaren F1 GTR, which began testing 20 years ago in order to get ready for the 1995 GT season. Produced by McLaren Special Operations, the P1 GTR is a track-only vehicle and doesn’t need to meet the legislations in order to become road legal.

As a result, McLaren’s P1 GTR will be fitted with slick tires, a fixed ride height, a fixed rear wing as well as an ERS-style push-to-pass system. As you can see from the photos, the new vehicle is based on the McLaren P1 road car but suffered big changes such as an increased front track (+80 mm), a more aggressive GT-style front splitter, reprofiled low temperature radiator ducts and active aerodynamic flaps.

There is an additional aerodynamic blade located behind the wheelarch that cleans the air from the front tires. An additional side panel at the rear brings air into the high temperature radiator and improves the aerodynamic performance of the rear floor.

Last month, McLaren officially announced the track-focused P1 GTR. Paying homage to the legendary McLaren F1 GTR, the new P1 GTR will be even more powerful than the standard version and carry a price tag of 1.90 million pounds ($3.35 million or 2.48 million euros).

Today, the first sketch with the new P1 GTR emerged on the Web thanks to a McLaren dealership located in Florida. As you can see, the new P1 GTR comes with an enormous rear wing, a new exhaust system located above the air diffuser but also widened sides in order to make room for wider tires.

McLaren told us that the P1 GTR will feature a widened track, a more aggressive styling but also slick tires. The standard McLaren P1 is powered by a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that delivers 737 hp and 720 Nm of torque, but also by an electric motor generating 179 hp and 260 Nm of torque.

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.

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.
