AUTO CENTRAL, UK -- July 25, 2014: McLaren will use its presence at the 2014 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance to showcase its ultimate track-focused model, the McLaren P1™GTR, in design concept form.

Conceived in response to requests from buyers of the road legal McLaren P1™ for a track focused edition of their car, and available for purchase only to this group as a fully comprehensive programme to include driving events, training and vehicle support, the McLaren P1™GTRwill go into production in June 2015 when the 375th and final example of the road car has been completed - two decades on from the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans win by the legendary McLaren F1 GTR.

The McLaren P1™GTR is being designed and developed using five decades of race-winning knowledge from the pinnacle of motorsport. Participants in the programme will have unprecedented access to the technologies, resources and expertise which have helped develop and train Formula 1™ champions.
