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”.
Moreover, McLaren replaced the chemically toughened glass panels located in the roof, with carbon fiber panels which makes the vehicle 50 kg lighter than the road-going model. In addition, the rear end features a fixed-height wing sitting more than 400 mm above the rear bodywork, 100 mm of the adjustable rear wing located on the road version.
The wing retains the DRS (Drag Reduction System) of the road car, which trims the pitch from 32° to 0° at the push of the button on the steering wheel.
The stylish tailpipe found on the road version was replaced by new large twin exhaust tailpipes, made out of Inconel and titanium alloy, which is 6.5 kg lighter than the standard system. Under the hood, there is a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that generates 800 hp, coupled to an electric motor producing 200 hp.
