It is always a big deal when you see a multi-million dollar car parked on the street like an ordinary family sedan, especially one that has no business being there in the first place. This road-legal McLaren P1 GTR is a pretty crappy car to drive on public roads for obvious reasons, but it could very well be the coolest thing ever to grace the streets.
It is amazing to think that somebody paid nearly two million dollar for a regular McLaren P1 – because that’s how qualify to buy a P1 GTR – then spend twice that on a racing McLaren P1 GTR, and probably the same amount again on making the thing road-legal. All that for what? To show us that he can? Well, yes, that’s how these things work really. Granted, the guy could have saved many lives spending all that money on fighting hunger and disease in Africa or someplace like that, but he decided he would feel better showing off. And that’s okay.
This British-registered road-legal McLaren P1 GTR was first spotted in Monte Carlo where it made a whole lot of noise. It is now in Chantilly region of France for the Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille show.
