McLaren P1 GTR: first official rendering revealed

Article by Christian A., on July 25, 2014

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.

With a total output of 916 hp, it can sprint 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. Top speed is electronically limited at 350 km/h or 217 mph.

The new McLaren P1 GTR will deliver a maximum output of over 1,000 hp, which means it will be faster than the road-legal version.
