To be joined by a road-legal P1 GTR modified by Lanzante.

To celebrate 40 years since James Hunt won the Formula 1 Driver’s Championship, McLaren has decided to dress up a P1 GTR in a special livery set to be showcased at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The track machine is going to wear a body finish inspired by Hunt’s race helmet, with a black base color combined with red, yellow and blue stripes based on his Wellington College colors. The car is going to be driven over the weekend by none other than Bruno Senna, the official McLaren P1 GTR Driver Program Mentor.

There’s going to be a second P1 GTR at Goodwood, a heavily modified version from Lanzante which has been converted for road use. Behind the wheel of the custom hypercar will be McLaren test driver and 1999 Indy 500 winner Kenny Bräck who will attempt to establish the quickest time for a road car. The current record belongs to Jann Mardenborough who completed the course in 49.27 seconds back in 2014 with a Nissan GT-R in the spicier NISMO flavor.

The P1 GTR duo is going to be joined at Goodwood FoS (23-26 June) by a wide array of other McLarens, from classic racers to the company’s most recent products, including the softer 570GT.
