Only 35 McLaren P1 GTRs were ever made. How much would you pay to tear up the track in this one currently up for sale?
The McLaren P1 is one of the most sacred hypercars released this decade. A spiritual successor to the iconic McLaren F1, it forms part of the holy trinity of hybrid hypercars alongside the LaFerrari and Porsche 918 Spyder. It’s also rather rare, since only 375 were made. Its track-only incarnation, the P1 GTR, is even rarer, however – only 35 were ever produced, making it extremely hard to find. We were pleasantly surprised, then, to find one for sale at McLaren Newport Beach.
And if it wasn’t already special enough, this specific example represents the second P1 GTR ever made. The hardcore P1 GTR is a formidable track car compared to the standard road-going version. Its 3.8-liter, twin-turbo V8 combined with electric motors somehow packs even more power to deliver 987 horsepower to the rear wheels, eclipsing its road car counterpart by 84 hp. You’ll certainly be thankful for the huge fixed rear wing keeping the back-end in check, while slick tires help give it additional grip to contain its brutal power. It’s 50 kg lighter too, resulting in a 0-60 mph time of 2.4 seconds and a top speed of 225 mph.
This 2015 model P1 GTR listed for sale in “like new showroom condition” is painted in “Alaskan Diamond White” and bears Navy Blue racing stripes. Intriguingly, the biblical reference “John 3:16? has been inscripted on the front, along with the number 02 on the side profile in reference to the chassis number. The dealer isn’t listing a price for the P1 GTR, but don’t be surprised if it commands over $4 million based on previous models that went on sale. It's $4 million well spent though, considering this is one of the most technically-advanced track cars money can buy.
