The British based automaker McLaren has recently released the first video teaser with the upcoming track version of the McLaren P1, the P1 GTR, which will be introduced in Geneva, in a couple of months.
After Ferrari has pulled the wraps off the impressive FXX K in late 2014, time has come for yet another vehicle to be offered in the same segment. The new supercar is coming from McLaren and it has been named the P1 GTR. The vehicle in question is basically a track only version of the P1 hybrid supercar and it will be officially presented to the public in a couple of months, during the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. The carmaker has also released the first teaser video with it, which can be seen below, right after the jump.
The brand new McLaren P1 GTR has been built around the carbon fiber MonoCage chassis of the P1 road-going supercar, which is apparently so strong that it is meeting the FIA load requirements for rollover, without necessitating the installment of a traditional roll cage. The model is also getting an aggressive front splitter, an 80 mm increased front track and several other goodies which should put some instance space, visually speaking, between it and the road going version. Power should be provided by the same 3.8 liter V8 twin turbo engine, found under the hood of the regular P1 too, backed up by an electric motor. The total output should be slightly raised compared to the 903 HP and 978 Nm produced by the standard supercar.
