McLaren P1 GTR debuts at Newport Beach image

One of the first examples of the McLaren P1 GTR to be offered on display can be seen these days at McLaren Newport Beach, in the United States.

The McLaren P1 GTR is being placed into the spotlights once again, a few months after it has been officially unveiled, this time with it making its local debut at McLaren Newport Beach, in the United States. The vehicle in question is aimed towards some of the wealthiest collectors of the British brand and it is a track-only vehicle, based on the road-legal P1, coming with a lot of extra features and, let’s not forget, a significant power boost. The model has an 80 mm increased front track, an aggressive front splitter, flared front wheel arches, a race-prepared suspension system and more.

McLaren has also fitted the P1 GTR with repositioned side mirrors, and with several other tweaks that make it instantly recognizable. The supercar stands at 50 mm lower and 80 mm wider compared to the P1, getting 10 percent improved downforce, a large fixed rear wing, 19-inch motorsport center-locking alloy wheels with Pirelli slick tires, carbon fiber panels, Inconel exhaust pipes, polycarbonate side windows and so on. Power is being provided by the same 3.8 liter twin turbo V8 engine, which is now producing 800 HP (588 kW), along with an electric motor generating 200 HP (147 kW). The total output produced by the assembly is now 1,000 HP (736 kW).
