The McLaren P1™ GTR is a track-tuned version of the McLaren P1™ hybrid hypercar.
In celebration of 20 years since their victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the McLaren P1™ GTR, introduced in production form at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, resurrected the GTR name that McLaren had last used in the F1 GTR. The P1™ GTR was produced in only 58 units, at first only for P1™ owners.
McLaren states that the McLaren P1™ GTR is the most powerful McLaren car to date, with an updated 3.8L (3,799 cc) McLaren M838TQ twin-turbocharged V8 engine producing 789 hp (588 kW) at 7,500 rpm. The McLaren ECU electric motor has also been updated to produce 197 hp (147 kW), bringing total output to 986 hp (1000 PS;735 kW) and 737 ft·lb (1000 N·m) at 4,000 rpm.
The McLaren P1™ GTR weighs 110 lb (50 kg) less than the regular P1™, with carbon fiber roof panels, a carbon fiber engine bay cover, Pirelli slick tires, and a fixed rear wing sitting more than 400 mm above the sculpted rear bodywork. The wing works in conjunction with the front-mounted aerodynamic flaps (LTR ducts) ahead of each front wheel to generate up to 1455 lb (660 kg) of downforce at 150 mph (241 km/h). The wing can still be operated via the Drag Reduction System (DRS), trimming the tilt angle from 32° to 0° at the push of a button on the steering wheel. The rear features large twin exhaust pipes formed from an Inconel and titanium alloy.
The McLaren P1™ GTR can do 0-60 mph in 2.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 245 mph (394 km/h).
The McLaren P1™ GTR was introduced in the Car Mastery Update in July 2015. Alongside the McLaren 675LT, the P1 GTR is the first McLaren car to be added to the game since the regular McLaren P1 over a year ago in The Great Wall Update back in early-mid 2014 and also the first one to not use the upgrade prices of the original cars. Unlike the regular P1, the P1 GTR is a Class S car.
As a high-end Class S car, the McLaren P1™ GTR has a starting rank of 1588, a MAX rank of 1716, and a MAX+PRO rank of 1801; via hacking, it can be turned into an Elite Car and have a MAX+PRO+Elite rank of 1832. It is the highest-ranked McLaren vehicle in the game and the second fastest McLaren in the game. Also, it is the first car to have a MAX rank above 1700 and a MAX+PRO rank above 1800 without a Tuning Kit. A Tuning Kit adds 30 rank points to the car, allowing for a maximum total of 1831 rank points and an unofficial maximum total of 1862 rank points.
As expected of a high-end Class S car, the McLaren P1™ GTR boasts among the best stats of all non-racing McLaren vehicles, with greatly improved stats over the regular McLaren P1, including a much better launch and acceleration, which is only beaten by the McLaren 570S. It also has among the highest total speeds of all the McLaren vehicles, topped only by the McLaren MP4-31; in fact, the McLaren P1™ GTR's real total speed is only equal to the Ferrari Enzo Ferrari, Mosler Super GT and TRION NEMESIS at MAX+PRO+Tuning Kit. The P1 GTR, owing to being a track-tuned version of the P1, considerably handles and drifts much better than the P1 and even the 675LT; this is true since the Summer's Over Update, which fixed a bug in the P1 GTR's drifting capabilities. In fact, since the P1 GTR is an excellent drifter, it can actually beat the Devel Sixteen Prototype in Sector 8, where cars with excellent drift handling come in handy especially due to the 1000-degree ending spiral curve. In terms of nitro duration, however, the P1 GTR is equivalent to the McLaren 570S and Lucra L148, with 7/12/17, compared to the 5/10/15 for the 675LT and F1, but the P1 GTR makes up for this with better acceleration, handling, and total speed. The player must be careful, though, as with most other McLaren cars (especially the McLaren Mercedes MP4-25), the P1 GTR can occasionally lose control or wreck randomly for no reason at all, especially in Tokyo and Venice. In short, the McLaren P1™ GTR serves as a jack-of-all-trades car unlike its rivals, like the TRION NEMESIS and Devel Sixteen Prototype, which are heavily biased towards a single performance aspect at the expense of most, if not all other performance aspects. The McLaren P1™ GTR also has the bonus of counting towards the McLaren and Off the Charts collections.
The McLaren P1™ GTR can be purchased for 13,500 ( 14,500 prior to the Championship Update). MAX upgrades total out to 2,985,150, while Pro Kits cost 1,863,250.
