The newest creation signed by McLaren is the P1 GTR as the model in question has been recently unveiled in its final production version. The supercar has received several tweaks compared to its road legal brother and some of them include the weight saving measures which have led to the polycarbonate side windows, pilule to the carbon fiber panels in the engine bay and in the roof, stomach to the exhaust pipes made from Inconel and titanium alloy along with several other tweaks.
The new P1 GTR is 50 mm lower and 80 mm wider compared to the road legal variant and it is getting a 10 percent improved downforce, along with a set of 19-inch motorsport center-locking alloy wheels, covered in Pirelli slick tires. At the rear we can notice the large fixed wing.

This has produced enhancements to the original design to optimize aerodynamic performance and cooling”, said the carmaker in its official press release.
Under the hood, the new track-only toy is packing the same 3.8 liter V8 twin turbo engine, which has been updated and it is now good for 800 HP (588 kW), along with a revised electric motor, rated at 200 HP (147 kW). The total output produced by the assembly stands at 1,000 HP (736 kW).
