It's been a while since we were teased about a radical P1 and McLaren delivered, it's their track-ready P1 GTR. So let's start with the numbers, power output of 1000HP, which is from the both electrical and combustion engines. Turning it into a track-toy, has widened the front track by 80mm and the car sits lower by 50mm. McLaren states that they reduced the overall weight by 50kg, due to motorsport solutions.
Side windows are made of racing polycarbonate, the glass roof has been replaced by carbon fiber, the same treatment happened to the engine cover.
Wheels have been converted to centerlock 19" goodies, wrapped in Pirelli slicks. Front of the car features a more aerodynamic splitter, with a carbon blade.
You migh noticed the rear wing, yes it is fixed, sittign higher by 100mm than the normal one and it works in conjunction with the flaps before the front wheels, being capable of generating 660kg of downforce. The wing also hosts the DRS system, which can be activated from a button on the steering wheel, managing a 32° to 0° when needed.
The Geneva Auto Show will host this car, along side the McLaren 675LT, which they still keep under wraps.
