The beast that is the McLaren P1 is both impressively fast and street legal–a combination that is often a challenge to find. But for those interested in only the raw power sector, rumors are circulating that there shall be a track-only McLaren P1. Did the track only LaFerrari slam the pedal down in the competition arena? I, for one, certainly hope so because the very words ‘Track only’ make my wheel hand tingle and heart downshift.
The existing version of the McLaren P1 is nothing to scoff at, having recently claimed a sub-7 minute lap at the Nurburgring. Not too many street legals can achieve that feat, follow link for full details on that story.
There will only be 375 units of the McLaren P1 produced. Word is that the company sent letters to all 375 P1 buyers to inquire if any would be interested in an even more focused version of the hypercar–meaning a track-only baby. It is unclear what other methods McLaren is utilizing to test the waters for the potential model–but this is a good indication that it may be at least half serious.
What could the track-only McLaren P1 offer?
If the track-only version ever comes to fruition, it would likely only be available to current McLaren owners. Custody of the illegal siblings would likely work in much the same way as the Ferrari Corse Clienti Program, wherein McLaren houses and cares for the vehicles and the owners visit when they can.
It would possess tighter suspension, steering and sleeker aeros to improve on the already blistering speed. Overall, it would undergo a weight reduction and some tweaks to multiply some of the ponies. The street legal girl already pushes forth 903 horsepower and 663 pound-feet of torque via a specialized plug-in hybrid powertrain.
