It Finally Happened: McLaren P1 GTR Pitted Against Aston Martin Vulcan

Bringing the McLaren P1 GTR and the Aston Martin Vulcan together on an empty track became a reality and we finally get to see how the one compares to the other.

These are track-only cars, unable to receive a registration for the public road and in a way represent the absolute best in terms of performance McLaren and Aston Martin can offer.

The P1 GTR is basically the unhinged version of the normal P1, as normal a P1 can be. McLaren tuned its hybrid powertrain for a total of 1000PS (986hp) while stripping away all of its clever aero for a real motorsport agenda, complete with winglets, splitters, a fixed rear wing and a massive rear diffuser.

The Aston Martin Vulcan on the other hand was designed from scratch as a race car, albeit one that isn’t eligible for any racing series. This super-machine is powered by a more traditional 7.0-liter naturally aspirated V12 with 820hp.

These British superstars use a very different recipe but have the same goal: to absolutely destroy any track they find themselves on. Which does it better? Find out in DriveTribe’s latest video.

    One car is still missing: The Ferrari FXX K. Ok, I’m joking but it would have been awesome if they could have gotten their hands on one as well.
