Check out where drivers of this 1,000-hp monster will be sitting.
Revealed in concept form at Pebble Beach over the summer, McLaren has now released the first images of the track-only P1 GTR’s stripped-out interior as hot weather testing of the car continues in Bahrain. As well as providing first uncamouflaged pics of the McLaren P1 GTR, the carmaker has shown the driver-focused cockpit complete with the F1-inspired MP4-23 steering wheel. Based on that used in the 2008 F1 championship winning racer, the steering wheel features key controls at its center, with mode switches, and DRS and IPAS buttons all easily accessible while in full race gear.
Lightweight DTM-style seats wrapped in carbon-fiber seat shells and six-point harnesses will be set up specifically for individual drivers and mounted directly to the chassis. Save for the air-conditioning, the cabin is stripped of all other non-essentials. McLaren has also announced its tailor-made driver program for P1 GTR owners, detailed in the video ahead.
