Following rumours last month, it can be confirmed that McLaren Automotive will launch a track-only variant of its incredible P1 hybrid hypercar. The confirmation comes alongside the British marque’s release of its 2013 financial results.
Maintaining focus on the track-only McLaren P1, it will be introduced sometime next year alongside the entry-level McLaren P13. McLaren also confirmed that the car will only be available for purchase for owners of the road-going P1 and that it will be the company’s rarest and most powerful vehicle it has ever created.
Pinned to be called the McLaren P1 Track, the car will feature new bodywork to further increase downforce as well as some suspension upgrades.
As for the British automaker’s financial results, it has posted a before tax profit of £4.5 million as well as operating profit of £12.4 million. Additionally, turnover has increased to £285.4 million up from £266.6 million from last year. The company delivered a total of 1359 McLaren 12Cs as well as 36 examples of the range-topping P1 last year. As we speak, more than 100 P1s have been delivered.
When discussing the results and the future of the firm, McLaren Automotive chief executive Mike Flewitt said, “We are now focusing upon the road ahead. The McLaren 650S is already selling extremely well with over 1000 orders received and P13 is a very exciting project, which will help us to access new markets and customers, grow our sales volumes and ultimately increase both revenue and profitability. I am confident that by maintaining our commitment to innovation and excellence McLaren Automotive has an extremely bright future.”
