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.
The McLaren P1™ GTR was the first car to have a MAX rank above 1700 and a MAX + PRO rank above 1800 without a Tuning Kit.
The McLaren P1™ GTR is a high-performance variant of the McLaren P1™. In the game, the P1™ GTR seems to be based on the McLaren 570S performance-wise, sharing the nitro stat and efficiency (7/12/17). The P1™ GTR is an underwhelming car in the game because it is much slower than many Class S competitors, including the Porsche 918 Spyder with Weissach Package, Aston Martin Vulcan, Devel Sixteen Prototype, Lamborghini Aventador SV, and McLaren MP4-31. Most of the P1™ GTR's other stats are mediocre as well, though it does seem to share the 570S' good acceleration. The TRION NEMESIS is similar to the P1™ GTR, except that it has faster acceleration.
In Multiplayer and TLEs, the McLaren P1™ GTR is a poor choice when compared to the 918 Spyder, Vulcan, Devel Sixteen, Aventador SV, MP4-31, and TRION. If it is used in Multiplayer, a MAX + PRO configuration is preferable.
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.
