The McLaren P1 GTR was built to celebrate 20 years since McLaren's victory at the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans, with the XP-7 prototype bearing a livery, marked #51, that is a homage to the yellow-and-green McLaren #51 Harrods Racing McLaren F1 GTR, one of the five F1 GTRs that dominated the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the historic debut by McLaren in 1995.
Only 58 units of the P1 GTR were made, several of them having been converted for road use. In 2016, the McLaren P1 LM, a 5-unit homologated run version of the P1 GTR, was unveiled.
|“||Among elite supercar heritage the name of McLaren stands tall and, at the blistering edge of performances, lives the P1 GTR. Named after the McLaren F1 GTR, which won the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans, the GTR is a race-bred hypercar with clear intent to rule the track. As part of McLaren’s GTR Driver Program, owners can receive training in preparation to participate in exclusive racing events. The GTR brings more power and more downforce, as well as a race-prepared suspension to the hypercar table. Look closely and you will notice the mirrors have been moved to the A-pillars to increase visibility and reduce drag. If you are looking for the ultimate offering from the U.K., look no further, the P1 GTR is here.||”|
Characteristics / Specifications Edit
McLaren states that the McLaren P1 GTR is the most powerful McLaren car to date, with an updated 3.8L (3,799 cc) McLaren M838TQ twin-turbocharged V8 engine producing 789 hp (588 kW) at 7500 rpm. The McLaren ECU electric motor has also been updated to produce 197 hp (147 kW), bringing the total output to 986 hp (735 kW) at 7500 rpm and 738 ft·lb (1000 N·m) at 4,000 rpm.
The P1 GTR weighs 110 lb (50 kg) less than the P1, complete with carbon fiber roof panels, carbon fiber engine bay cover, Pirelli P Zero Corsa slick tires, and a fixed rear wing that sits at least 400 mm above the sculpted rear bodywork. This new wing works together with the front-mounted LTR ducts (aerodynamic flaps) in front of each front wheel to generate a downforce of up to 1455 lb (660 kg) at 150 mph (241 km/h). The wing can still be operated via the Drag Reduction System (DRS), trimming the tilt angle from 32° to 0° at the push of a button on the steering wheel. The rear features large twin exhaust pipes formed from an Inconel and titanium alloy.
The P1 GTR uses the same 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission as the regular P1, also driving the rear wheels. 0-60 mph (97 km/h) is done in as quickly as 2.6 seconds with at top speed of at least 225 mph (362 km/h).

The McLaren P1 GTR, as is the Ferrari FXX K to the Ferrari LaFerrari, acts as a more handling/braking-focused version of the McLaren P1 made specially for the track. With a more powerful powertrain and less weight, as well as a rear wing for more downforce, the P1 GTR gains the ability to steer as sharply as 1.6 lateral Gs. 0-60 mph (97 km/h) is trimmed down to 2.4 seconds, and 0-100 mph (161 km/h) is also cut down to 4.5 seconds. Due to the increased downforce, the top speed of the P1 GTR is reduced to 234 mph (376 km/h). For some reason, though, the in-game version of the car is incorrectly configured, with the dashboard and car not being put in Race Mode (with the rear wing not functioning like it should), hence why the P1 GTR does not actually perform as well as it would be expected (with worse braking and handling performance than expected), even though the LaFerrari is inferior to the P1 on most tracks, which should also logically make the FXX K slower than the P1 GTR on most tracks.
- The McLaren P1 GTR's exterior door inserts cannot be painted with any decals at all. This has never been fixed.
- The McLaren P1 GTR is the only non-racing car from the Hot Wheels Car Pack in Forza Motorsport 6 that was not included in Forza Horizon 3.
- The McLaren P1 GTR used in the game is the XP7 prototype, evidenced by the "XP7" text if one is to look inside the car by the driver's side.
- The P1 GTR's daytime running lights do not function correctly in-game.
