A stunning example of the insane McLaren P1 GTR was recently filmed on the streets of London being unloaded from a truck and cautiously driven into a private event. Understandably, dozens of Londoners flocked to see the track-only hybrid hypercar on the street albeit only briefly.

This particular P1 GTR has been painted silver and features a selection of bright orange elements. Interestingly, it hasn’t been installed with the full racing seats we saw originally displayed on the P1 GTR back at Geneva in March.

Compared to the road car, modifications have been made to the engine of the P1 GTR. Typically the P1’s 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged engine and electric motor make 903 hp combined. That has been increased to 986 hp (1000 PS) for the McLaren P1 GTR however.

Additionally, new race-prepared suspension has been fitted providing a fixed ride height which is lower than the standard car. The wing mirrors have been repositioned onto the A pillars to put them closer to the eye of the driver and reduce aerodynamic drag. Meanwhile, the trailing edge of the door-mounted radiator channels have been extended to draw more air down through the cavity within the door, and into the engine to aid cooling.
