Clients of McLaren Newport Beach are well aware of the dealership’s reputation for regularly hosting incredible and exclusive events. In March, they hosted the LNB300 Weekend Rally, and they recently offered another opportunity to a select few guests.
Hosted at a private home in Newport Coast, a stunning estate with distinctly Tuscan architecture and ample room in the motorcourt, the event was McLaren Newport Beach’s private viewing party for the P1 GTR, McLaren’s top of the line performance vehicle.
Unveiled at the Geneva International Motor Show Feb. 18, the P1 GTR is both the high performance, track-oriented version of the P1 and a more-than-worthy successor to the F1 GTR that had a podium finish during the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans. This new GTR model improves upon the P1’s performance and design in all the right ways, including an 80 mm wider front fascia and a fixed-height rear wing.
The powertrain of this vehicle turns out an incredible 986 hp, and the entirety of the cockpit is designed to protect the driver while racing at high speeds. To do so, it utilizes a large amount of carbon fiber, and does so in a visually beautiful manner.
The P1 GTR is only available for purchase by current P1 owners, and comes with a price tag of approximately $3.1 million, though it is not yet known precisely how many will make it to production. Take a moment to enjoy the photos from McLaren Newport Beach’s exclusive event honoring this historic creation, and then find yourself the qualifying purchase from our exclusive listings.
