McLaren P1 GTR To Debut at Geneva

The most powerful (and most exclusive) McLaren is going to have its premiere at the Geneva Auto Show in March. The P1 GTR is being billed as one of the fastest ever to wear the McLaren “speed mark.” The track-only model will boast a power-to-weight ratio increase in excess of 10 percent over the road-going model. That’s achieved, in part, through significant weight-saving measures and track-optimization of the gas-electric hybrid powertrain.

McLaren says the testing has been designed to further enhance cooling and aerodynamics over the design concept previewed at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in the summer of 2014. The real fun starts in the coming weeks. Drivers will be invited to the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, UK, experience some of the world’s most iconic racing circuits behind the wheel of one of the most extreme limited-run track cars ever built.

The snorkel air intake, inspired by the design of the original McLaren F1, is still present within the roof structure of the carbon fiber MonoCage chassis. Watch the video below to get a sense of the commitment to the next level of McLaren and its P1 GTR.
