More details about production McLaren P1 GTR

By ,

As reported a few weeks ago, the McLaren P1 GTR will make its debut in production form at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. Boasting a power-to-weight ratio increase in excess of 10% over the road-going model, it is rated at more than 1,000 horsepower.

The design of the Geneva show car pays tribute to the yellow and green McLaren F1 GTR, chassis #06R, which has claimed its own place in history as one of the five F1 GTRs that dominated the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the historic debut by McLaren 20 years ago.

The McLaren P1 GTR has a 80mm wider front track and a 50mm lower ride height than its road-going sibling. The chemically toughened glass panels in the roof have been replaced with carbon fibre panels, while the lightweight windshield (measuring just 3.2mm thick) has been retained. Additionally, the P1 GTR's side windows are now motorsport-specification polycarbonate with a sliding ‘ticket window’ on the driver’s side.

The McLaren P1 GTR joins the road-going P1 in the company's Ultimate Series, positioned above the entry-level Sports Series and mid-level Super Series.
