McLaren P1 LM takes on Pikes Peak - video

The P1 LM takes McLaren's hardest, fastest track-only car and makes it road legal. It'll lap the Nurburgring Nordschleife in 6:43.2 and, thanks to the combination of a twin-turbo V8 engine and an electric motor, pumps out 735kW. Developed by Lanzante, it's a handy 60kg lighter than the 'standard' P1 GTR thanks to lightweight seats, plastic windows, titanium bolts and a missing set of air jacks.

McLaren opens the P1 to younger drivers with lightweight special

It doesn't have a unique paint finish, and more power was out of the question, but it does open the Ultimate Series up to a completely new audience – one often neglected by high-end sports car makers.

McLaren P1 GTR revealed ahead of Geneva debut

After a lot of teasing, and the odd concept vehicle, the invitation only McLaren P1 GTR track car has been revealed. The new vehicle will make its public debut at the upcoming Geneva motor show alongside the 675LT. Compared to the road going P1, the GTR features an 80mm wider front track, retuned suspension that sits 50mm lower to the ground, and Pirelli slicks wrapped around centre-locking 19-inch alloy wheels.
