You’ll be quite popular on track day with this British supercar.
Straight from the showroom floor, the McLaren P1 is an impressive supercar. While it might be plenty entertaining, if you want a true track toy this McLaren P1 GTR is the way to go. Even though it’s a 2016 model, there are a mere 283 miles showing on the odometer. Not only does it look great, this car has all the features you could want for a fantastic day at the track.
There aren’t too many of these track-focused cars since McLaren kept production to a mere 58 units. And while they’re definitely set up for running on a circuit, they’re street legal, so technically you don’t have to tow it to the track, although you might still want to.
After you partake of the 986-horsepower produced by the howling 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with hybrid powertrain bolted up, you’ll understand this is a very special car. A 7-speed dual-clutch transmission like what’s used in Formula One keeps your hands on the steering wheel, so you’re ready to negotiate every turn with precision.
Also included is an ERS-style push-to-pass system. You can’t miss the huge fixed rear wing, which leverages a Drag Reduction System developed in Formula 1. Even the side mirrors, which are attached to the A-pillars, are designed to keep your eyes on the track ahead while also cutting down on aerodynamic drag.
That commanding stance has been created in part by the 19-inch motorsport alloy wheels and a track width which measures an additional 3.2 inches. The suspension has been race-prepared and is at a fixed height that’s perfect for attacking apexes with vigor.
You’ll also note the interior is set up with one goal in mind: pushing the limits of performance. A single racing seat, plenty of exposed carbon fiber, onboard camera system, and racing steering wheel are all included, so all you need to do is bring the proper attire.
