Last week’s Pebble Beach event saw the unveiling of McLaren’s new track-focused P1 GTR Design Concept, a model set to available commercially starting next year.

The P1 GTR was developed by the McLaren Special Operations division and its launch celebrates 20 years since the F1 GTR was released to take part in the 1995 GT season. The vehicle boasts a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 and electric motor combination outputting 986 horsepower, which is 83 more that the street-legal version.

Modifications compared to the standard car include a front track that’s wider by 80mm, with flared wheel arches, and a large new splitter. The side mirrors are positioned in the A-pillars, another sign that the creators` only concerns were regarding the vehicle’s aerodynamics and not following the regulations which would make it street-legal. The standard P1’s retractable wing was replaced by a fixed unit and there’s also sizeable new set of pipes.

The price for the McLaren P1 GTR will be somewhere in the neighborhood of £2 million (almost $3.5 million), which will also include a full racing program.
