Next month’s Geneva Motor Show will bring about plenty of new automotive models, but we don’t know that anything will compete with the 2015 McLaren P1 GTR.
The British auto maker has worked tirelessly to create the most track-ready McLaren on the market. This menacing machine is packed with a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, that paired with an electric motor helps the race car pump out an Earth rattling 986 horsepower (789 from the petrol-powered engine and 197 ponies from the electric motor). The vehicle’s body panels are crafted from ultra lightweight carbon fiber, which includes the new roof and engine cover – components that used to be built from glass. The side windows are now plexiglass and the addition of a titanium exhaust helped the overall weight loss come in at a solid 110 pounds. Thanks to enhanced aerodynamics, the P1 GT-R has the ability of generating 1,455 pounds of downforce at speeds of 150 miles per hour, and you better believe those 19-inch alloys wrapped in Pirelli slicks aren’t hurting the cause.
