$3.3 million track-focused McLaren P1 GTR previewed with a design rendering

Bugatti Veyron might still hold the record for being the fastest production car in the world and undoubtedly is an engineering marvel, but the car that deserves to be at the pinnacle of automotive technology at the moment has to be the McLaren P1. The performance and technology it packs is unprecedented. So when McLaren confirmed a track focused P1 model wearing the GTR name, the automotive world was set abuzz. Slated to make its world debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on 15 August, the British marquee has released a single design sketch of the car teasing the shape and external design elements of it. However vague the rendering might be, it’s enough to pump up the excitement and anticipation.

Twenty years after it won Le Mans in F1 guise, the iconic GTR badge is set to return to a McLaren once again and everyone is anticipating it to be as amazing as its predecessor. Designed specifically for the track, McLaren promises its P1 GTRs will offer unrivalled levels of performance and grip. Analyzing the sketch, we can see big fixed rear wing instead of the active spoiler which is the most noticeable difference. The P1 GTR will go into production in June 2015, after all 375 examples of the standard P1 road car have been built and will be priced at £1.98m ($3.36 million). Come August 15th, all eyes will be on the unveiling.
