McLaren P1 GTR to debut at Geneva

McLaren will debut what they call a production-intent model of the most powerful and most exclusive of their models to date at the Geneva Motor Show in early March.

It will be shown in Geneva ahead of the start of production later this year; the track-only model will make its global debut in production form at the Swiss auto show.

It looks set to be one of the fastest to ever wear the famous McLaren 'speed mark'. It is powered by an petrol-electric powertrain and will boast a power-to-weight ratio increase in excess of 10 percent over the road-going model, to more than 700hp per tonne.

The limited edition McLaren P1 GTR is presently being put though its paces in extreme testing across Europe and the Middle East with Chief Test Driver Chris Goodwin at the wheel.
