Twenty years ago, the McLaren F1 GTR debuted in the 1995 GT season. At that time the competition version was derived from the street version and the brand’s place in motorsport history was secured by victories achieved in the following years around the world. Two decades later, the cover of the McLaren P1 GTR Concept was taken from the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in California. The model still concept, is a preview of the final model that should start production in less than a year. Until then, Mclaren’s development team will work on the enhancement and optimization of what promises to be one of the most aggressive models on competition tracks around the world.The new Mclaren P1 GTR will be offered only to P1 owners and will cost around £ 1.98 million, something around the $ 7.5 million trifle, and will go into production in 2015, shortly after McLaren complete the assembly of the last unit of P1, completing a total of 375 unitsThe final model should develop 1,000 horsepower and should weigh less than P1, which weighs 1,400 kg.

2014 – McLAREN P1 XP05 PROTOTYPE
During the development of the McLaren P1 the British brand came to build 14 different development prototypes, different, specified by the acronym XP (Experimental Prototype) and each one dedicated to the tests of certain mechanical elements. In the case of this copy, it is the prototype named XP05 and had a very curious initial life.Created initially to test the Bosch injection system and transmission, provided by the British specialist Ricardo, along with the 3.8-liter V8 engine, the XP05 prototype was later used to present the brutal P1 GTR track-only version.To that end, McLaren completely transformed the XP05 prototype to the P1 GTR specifications, for the purpose of using it as a demonstration vehicle, being presented in 2015 at the Geneva and New York Halls with a yellow decoration with ‘racing stripe lines’ in color green, named after the classic McLaren F1 GTR chassis 06R that dominated the 24 Hours of Le Mans of 1995.After serving as a development vehicle and demonstrating the P1 GTR, the XP05 prototype was dismantled until only the carbon chassis remained and then rebuilt, with the same specifications as the other limited series.Its buyer asked for it in the classic orange of McLaren and still requested a good number of options from the department of Special Operations of McLaren (MSO). Its engine is new and counts only with 300 miles of use, just less than 500 kilometers.Currently based on the sale of the classic British expert, Tom Hartley Jnr, where they did not want to divulge its price. Its surviving prototype status and contrasting past as the initial unit of the P1 GTR make it a very prominent example of the production of the hybrid sports car, which will certainly translate into a fairly high price.
