McLaren Automotive will resurrect its fabled GTR nameplate for its P1 supercar, nearly 20 years after the legendary McLaren F1 GTR won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1995.

According to McLaren Automotive, the P1 GTR will be the most powerful McLaren to date with a strictly limited production run commencing "when the 375th and final example of the road car has been completed."

Designed for the track, the P1 GTR does not need to comply with any road legislation, and is designed and developed to be "the best driver's car in the world on track." McLaren claims the P1 GTR will produce 986hp and will be equipped with slick tires, a wider track, "and more aggressive and distinctive styling designed to offer optimized performance around a lap."

McLaren Automotive’s price tag for the P1 GTR is £1.98 million (P147.5 million), and will include a tailored program designed for each customer "to build driver capability." The program supposedly includes exclusive consultations with the McLaren driver fitness team and the carmaker's design director Frank Stephenson; access to one of McLaren's racing simulators; and participation in at least six dedicated international drive events to be held at some of the most popular Formula 1 circuits.
