The recently unveiled track-only toy McLaren P1 has been put against its iconic predecessor, the F1 GTR, for a quick track battle which is announcing its official debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.
McLaren’s ultimate toy is called the P1 GTR and this is a track-only supercar which will be making its public debut at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, on the 3rd of March. In order to announce its full reveal, the British carmaker has released an interesting clip in which the P1 GTR is going against its iconic predecessor, the F1 GTR, on the track. The model in question has received the livery inspired by the F1 GTR #65R, one of the five cars which managed to grab the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 13th places at the Le Mans endurance race, back in 1995.
The McLaren P1 GTR is 50 kg lighter than the road-going variant and it is also more powerful than the standard P1. This is packing the same 3.8 liter V8 engine along with an electric motor, but these have been upgraded and they are now producing 800 HP and 200 HP, respectively. The combined output stands at a total of 1,000 HP (736 kW). The P1 GTR is 50 mm lower and 80 mm wider than the regular P1 and it has increased aerodynamic boost downforce by 10 percent. The supercar is rivaling the Ferrari FXX K and it will be fully revealed at the Swiss automotive event, next Tuesday.
