Have you ever wondered what colors you can order for your McLaren P1 GTR? Here are 12 of those color combos.
Just a month after we mourned the McLaren P1 reaching the end of production, pictures emerged of one torn up and loaded onto a wrecker. Not only is that over $1 million down the drain, it’s also just plain depressing.

That’s it. It’s over. The end. As of today, the McLaren P1 road car is a car that McLaren used to make. 375 production examples have been built, and no more for the rest of time.
Imagine one lap around the sunny Portimao Circuit in Portugal with Chris Harris in the McLaren P1 running on its optional P Zero Trofeo R tires. You’d probably have the exact same face as Marino Franchitti above.
To get the Holy Trinity of hypercars together at a track, you need to have the right names in your phonebook. To drive the crap out of them and have as much fun as possible, you need Chris Harris, Tiff Needell and Marino Franchitti behind the wheels.
Super-rich-dude Paul Bailey submitted his Holy Trinity of hypercars–the Ferrari LaFerrari, Mclaren P1, and Porsche 918 Spyder–to a track comparison at Silverstone. We assume this happened before he crashed his 918 into a crowd of people a few days ago at a Malta car show.
Chris Harris finally got the three hybrid hypercars together on a track and here’s the first trailer of the video and it looks like he might beat (Not) Top Gear to the punch.
Check out this 2,740 horsepower showdown between the McLaren P1, Porsche 918 Spyder, and Ferrari LaFerrari on the same race track in the same conditions. It might not be elite driving, but seeing what these cars can do in “consumer spec” in the hands of their actual owners is kind of fascinating.
While this isn’t one of the road-legal P1 GTRs yet, McLaren Special Operations certainly had to go a bit crazy with the airbrush for this customer.
Roller coasters can be exciting and all, but they corner like they’re on rails—literally. Yawn. Rides are so much better when the tires have been happily thrashed on all day and you get just a little bit of slip that’s controllable with competent hands. Oh, and they’re the best of all if they’re in McLaren’s latest…
McLaren confirmed that F1 GTR specialist Lanzante will convert some of the track-only P1 GTRs to road legal specification starting in the summer. What LaFerrari?
Evo has finally done it. McLaren F1 chassis number 46 and McLaren P1 chassis number 46 were taken to the south of France to see what the new car has on the legendary original. Better brakes and rear lamps, basically.
Chris Harris is the luckiest chap in the world. Chris Harris is the luckiest chap in the world. Chris Harris is the luckiest chap in the world. Chris Harris is the luckiest chap in the world. Chris Harris is the luckiest chap in the world.
