2014 McLaren P1 GTR Race Car Concept

After McLaren F1 GTR launched twenty years ago, the new McLaren P1 GTR has been unveiled today at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance event in California. The aggressive racing concept is a preview to the final model which, with a little under a year until production commences, has now entered the next phase as the development team works to hone and further optimize the ultimate track-focused racer.

No need to meet the legislations for road legality, the McLaren P1 GTR will be the most track-tailored and most powerful model produced by McLaren Special Operations to date, with a clear target even more focused than its road-going sibling: to be the best driver's car in the world on track. With even greater emphasis on aerodynamic performance through the dramatic bodywork, the McLaren P1 GTR will also feature race-proven slick tires, a fixed ride height, enhanced power delivery from the IPAS powertrain and Formula 1-derived DRS from the large, fixed rear wing and an ERS-style push-to-pass system, all combining to offer the ultimate track experience.

Aerodynamically Efficient Body Shape

Based on the McLaren P1 road car, the track-focused McLaren P1 GTR design concept further optimizes the aerodynamically efficient 'shrink-wrapped' body shape in order to offer maximum performance, superior handling characteristics and optimized driver engagement on track. A host of changes have been made, and the car has been thoroughly re-engineered from the ground up to ensure the McLaren P1 GTR achieves its target of being the ultimate drivers' car on track.

The front track of the McLaren P1 GTR design concept has been increased by 80mm and is coupled with a more aggressive GT-style front splitter. Reprofiled low temperature radiator ducts seamlessly flow into the leading edge of the aggressively flared front wheelarches, while the active aerodynamic flaps are retained from the McLaren P1 in the floor ahead of the front wheels.

A set of lightweight 19-inch motorsport alloy wheels are fitted - 10.5-inches wide at the front, 13-inches at the rear - and are secured into place with quick-release center locking nuts. tire changes are made easier through an onboard air jacking system, similar to that seen on the McLaren 650S GT3 racer.
