Last year we were teased with a concept design for the P1 GTR, and now McLaren has unveiled the final production model in all its 986-horsepower packing glory. The striking yellow and green color scheme, which will be displayed in the flesh — so to speak — at the Geneva motor show next month, is inspired by the Harrods-liveried F1 GTR that placed third at the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans. Looking past the pretty paint job, one finds a 3.8-liter turbocharged V-8 under the hood, which works with an electric motor to generate the aforementioned 986 horsepower. Developed strictly for the track, the vehicles sheds 110 lbs. of excess weight by utilizing only “motorsports derived parts,” like polycarbonate side windows. The front track is 80mm wider and the ride height is 50mm lower than the standard version, but the most dramatic revision takes the form of the massive rear wing, which is set 100mm higher than the road-going P1’s to increase downforce levels by 10 percent. P1 road car owners can purchase the P1 GTR if they have £1.98 million lying around (over $3 million USD).
