McLaren F1 GTR was the race version of McLaren F1. It has competed in Global GT Series, FIA GT Championship, JGTC, British GT Championship and Le Mans.
However, it’s most famous victory was in 1995, during the Le Mans, when it managed to outrun models that had been built especially for this race. The production of these models has been stopped in 2005.
After having most of the McLaren F1GTR cars removed from the racing world, this model has received a second chance. Some of the most famous copies went straight to the museums or became part of specialized exhibitions; others have been bought by collectors.
Some of these cars have been adapted so that they could be used on the streets, along with their perfect sound.
You can admire some of these models in the pictures below.
Undoubtedly, the popularity of the legendary McLaren F1 underpins the popularity of its successor, McLaren P1 GTR. And to emphasize this, the British automobiles got out for a race.
The star of the new promo, P1 GTR is finished in the same color combination as its predecessors, who managed to shatter competitors after they positioned in 1st, 3rd, 4th and 5th places in the 24 hours race of Le Mans in 1995! Another similarity between the two is that the P1 GTR supercar remains a true racing car that will never step on public roads.
P1 GTR is 50 kilograms lighter, clearance is lowered by 80 mm and track width increased by 80 mm! The aerodynamic kit installed on the machine can guarantee a downforce of 660 km at a speed of 241 km/h! And finally, the engine power is limited to 1,000 horsepower, 800 of which are delivered by turbo-aspirated 3.8-liter engine and the other 200 are in the reserves of the electric motor.
