McLaren P1 GTR - The Most Powerful Model Of All time
|   Monday, June 23, 2014
The McLaren P1 hypercar is a beast on its own, with a top speed of 217 mph (350 km / h), and a cost of 1.4 million dollars. But this is nothing compared to the last offer of the company. McLaren Automotive has announced that it will build a 3.4 million dollars version, only variant of the circuit of the P1, called P1 GTR.

McLaren states the P1 GTR "will be designed and developed as the best drivers' car in the world on track." That means a price tag of 1.
8 million British pounds, nearly 1,000 horsepower, and complete racing setup "with no need to comply with road legislation."

The McLaren P1 receives a special GTR after 20 years have passed since its predecessor's success at Le Mans. The model will be built for the circuit and will be produced in only 375 units. Each unit will have a 1,000 hp engine, slick tires, a wider track, a more aggressive design, competition aerodynamics and numerous other features designed to enhance performance.

The McLaren F1 GTR it is the British model that won the Le Mans race 20 years ago and that gave the GTR suffix to the P1 model. The F1 GTR managed to reach 381 km / h during training in 1995. 
Those at McLaren have not yet presented an image of the production version, preferring to publish a teaser image and P1 GTR logo, which the model will wear. In any case, the production of the model dedicated to the circuit will begin once the last street P1 will leave the factory in Woking.

McLaren representatives say they have developed this version at the request of customers who have already ordered a P1. A copy will cost 1.98 million pounds (about 3.4 million dollars), and each client will receive a personalized training program, designed to make him a better driver, able to bridle the dedicated circuit P1 version. Amongst the special facilities to which they will have access, we can list advice from fitness teams, which serve McLaren pilots, McLaren simulator access, and participation in at least six events in pilot training on F1 circuits at global level.

The propulsion is provided by a hybrid system consisting of a twin-turbo V8 engine displacing 3.8 liters, supported by an electric motor. Together, the two engines provide 916 hp and a torque of 900 Nm. The British equipped the supercar with tech taken from Formula 1 systems, like DRS and IPAS, both controlled via buttons on the steering wheel.

The "boost", developed by McLaren and called IPAS (Instant Power Assist System), delivers up to 179 hp at the push of a button. The second button located on the steering wheel is for DRS (drag reduction system) to adjust the rear spoiler to reduce air friction by 23 percent. Combined with new technologies that have not yet been revealed, they should ensure the P1 GTR model a time of only 2.8 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km /h (0 to 62 mph).
