Watch The McLaren P1 GTR Destroy Its Road-Legal Sibling’s Lap Time

Oh, the Mclaren P1 GTR. One of the craziest modern vehicles in existence, designed specifically to fill its driver with adrenaline and post record lap times.

The track-only variant of the British hybrid hypercar is packing 1000PS (986hp) from its powertrain that combines an 800PS (789hp) twin-turbo V8 with a 200PS (197hp) worth of help coming from the electric motor.

The front track is widened by 80mm compared to a standard P1, while the ride is lowered by 50mm. The whole body is now adorned with a new wild aero agenda, including a huge rear wing that sits 400mm above the bodywork. McLaren claims that the body can now produce up to 660kg / 1,455 lbs of downforce at 150mph.

While Lanzante Motorsport is already converting a handful of these incredible track-only machines for road use, we don’t think that any sane person would want a drive on a bumpy back road after watching this beast being unleashed on the Anglesey circuit on Evo magazine’s latest video.
