2015 Geneva Motor show sets the stage for the all new bunch of super cars. With a whopping 986 bhp the super car sounds exactly like a car. McLaren has pushed the performance of the car to its limits and has been designed to enhance cooling and aerodynamics over the design which was showcased in the Pebble Beach Concours show last year. The ultimate track focused driver's car, as the company claims, will be launched soon in the foreign market this year. The name alone suggests how significant the car will be. The first time GTR moniker was used was when McLaren F1 GTR won the 1995 Le Mans 24 Hours.
McLaren focuses on the P1 owners for its new super powered sports car, the GTR will only be available for the current P1 owners. The company specifically quotes that the car is 'Available to McLaren P1 owners only'. Production of the track-focused P1 GTR will begin in 2015 when the 375th and final road car has been built.
The McLaren P1 GTR will push everything to its limits without any road-car regulations, featuring even more performace and grip than the road car. The aggressive aerodynamics of the supercar is the one feature that makes it to hold on tight to the road. Widened track and slick tyres adds on to the styling of the super car.
The mid-mounded engine would be more powerful than the other versions from the company. McLaren pushes the limits on the track with a massive 1000PS, approximately 986 bhp, of power output from the mid-mounded engine.
A price tag of 3 million US dollars, the McLaren P1 GTR programme not only targets on achieving the customer sales of the car but also will be including participation in driving events at some of the most iconic driving circuits in the world with superior motor support. Also available will be McLaren's own racing simulators with driver training from experts who have helped in bringing up the Formula 1 champions.
In addition to all that is offered, the company also plans to offer exclusive consultations with the McLaren driver fitness team and Design Director Frank Stephenson in the GTR programme.
The design concept of the McLaren P1 GTR was unveiled in an exclusive preview event at the McLaren Brand Centre. The company claims that the 1000PS supercar is capable of high performance oriented driving. The development programme for the most powerful and exclusive McLaren model to-date has been stepped up over the winter months, with the limited edition McLaren P1™ GTR being put through its paces across Europe and the Middle East.
Ahead of the start of production later this year, and the start of the bespoke Driver Programme, the track-only model will make its global debut in production form at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show in March.
