McLaren P1 GTR — Geneva
The track-only McLaren P1 GTR debuted in Geneva painted in a yellow and green livery, inspired by the McLaren F1 GTR chassis #06R that was one of five F1 GTRs that competed at Le Mans in 1995. All changes to the P1 GTR from the road car are specifically for track performance, including a wider track, lower ride height, aggressive front splitter, 19-inch motorsport alloy wheels and the a fixed rear wing. Lightweight components and motorsports technologies have shaved more than 100 pounds of weight, and aerodynamic changes result in 10 percent more downforce than the P1 road car. The powertrain of the P1 GTR has been extensively revised for optimum track performance, combining the 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine with an enhanced lightweight electric motor for total output of 1000 horsepower. The P1 GTR is only offered to current McLaren P1 owners and McLaren is developing a P1 Driver Program for driver training, testing and evaluation, and track sessions.
