McLaren is coming to this year’s Geneva Motor Show with an amazing lineup. They have the new 675 LT, which is a hard-core 650S, and they have the production version of the McLaren P1 GTR track car. They have just dropped this amazing promo to whet your appetite and get your engines revving for the show.
In this clip you see the McLaren P1 GTR playing around on the race track with its legendary father, the Le Mans winning F1 GTR. The P1 GTR is designed to allow a small number of rich people experience the thrill of driving a race car, and a highly prestigious one at that. It costs 2 million GBP, but it kind of makes you feel like a skilled Le Mans driver without the need for talent, fearlessness, and unshakable endurance.
About the McLaren F1 GTR #06R:
McLaren F1 GTR chassis #06R was campaigned successfully throughout the 1995 and 1996 seasons with Mach One Racing, and is one of the longest serving examples of the McLaren F1 GTR in competition. The Harrods-sponsored #51 was famously one of seven McLaren F1 GTRs to compete at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1995, and was driven to the final podium position by multiple Le Mans race winner Derek Bell, his son Justin, and Andy Wallace. After this result, the team went on to win the final three races of the BPR Championship. The following year, the team enjoyed another strong campaign. Oliver Grouillard joined Derek Bell and Andy Wallace in the line-up for the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and finished a commendable sixth. The team also claimed a win at Silverstone in the Global GT Endurance championship.
