McLaren has announced the track-only P1 GTR which is set to become the company's most powerful model ever.

Programmed to be sold exclusively to P1 owners, the GTR represents McLaren's ultimate track toy but it will be an expensive one as pricing has been established at a whopping 1.98M GBP (3.3M USD or 2.48M EUR) which makes it considerably more expensive than the 866,000 GBP road-going P1.

While the "regular" P1 churns an already impressive 916 PS (674 kW), the GTR variant will be tweaked even further to reach the 1,000 PS (736 kW) mark. It will look more aggressive and will likely feature a fixed rear wing instead of the P1's automatically deployable unit. Other changes will include widened tracks and a set of track-spec slick tires - all created "to offer optimised performance around a lap."

Production of the P1 GTR will commence sometime in 2015 after the final 375th road-going P1 will be completed and the model will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the legendary F1 GTR. McLaren doesn't say how many cars will be built but they do mention production will be "strictly limited" and all owners will benefit from a tailored program which will include consultations with the firm's driver fitness team and Design Director Frank Stephenson.

Moreover, customers will have access to the McLaren racing simulators and will take part in at least six international drive events. McLaren doesn't specify whether P1 GTR owners will be in the possession of their cars at all times or if they will allow clients to use their cars on various occasions, just like Ferrari is doing through its FXX program.
