The McLaren specialists, Lanzante, have developed a Longtail-converted, street-legal P1 GTR hypercar with a stunning Gulf-inspired livery.
Whenever Lanzante gets their paws on a McLaren project they produce the most incredible outcomes, much like how they stunned the world with the reveal of their Lanzante McLaren F1 GTR Longtail-inspired P1 GT a few years ago. The McLaren P1 remains the flagship model in their lineup since it was first introduced back in 2012 in Paris. Since then, there have been a few upgraded versions but all based on the same hypercar, such as the McLaren P1 GT, McLaren P1 GTR and the McLaren P1 LM. Now, the McLaren Lanzante team's Gulf livery work on the new longtail P1 GTR-18 has been officially publicised, and it is jaw-droppingly gorgeous!
The Lanzante McLaren P1 GTR-18 project started two years ago by a company called O'Gara who commissioned Lanzante to develop the McLaren P1 GTR-18 Longtail.
The McLaren P1 GTR-18 Longtail by Lanzante has been engineered to be street-legal, which was the same approach with the McLaren P1 LM as well as the McLaren P1 GT. So, technically, you'll be able to take this McLaren hypercar, which is just shy of an F1 car, to a McDonald's drive-thru to get yourself some fresh nuggets before hitting Silverstone!
Apart from a few small cosmetic changes by Lanzante, the McLaren P1 GTR-18's bodywork is exactly the same as a McLaren P1 GT, and the same goes for the powertrain that pumps 903 hp (916 PS; 673 kW) out of its monstrous 3.8L twin-turbocharged M838TQ V8 McLaren E-Motor engine.
However, the McLaren P1 GTR-18 has a more luxurious and well-defined interior with leather trimmings, and a lot more attention to soundproofing. Clearly not enough, though, because it comes with a two-way radio for the driver and passenger to communicate.
Much like the other McLaren P1's by Lanzante, the McLaren P1 GTR-18 is going to be extremely limited with only six samples to be made.
