The description doesn’t divulge why it’s bobbed up on the James Edition, but with only 245km on its odometer maybe someone tired of it very quickly on the milk-run. Either way, this won’t happen often.
McLaren Special Operations transformed only a small number of its P1s into GTR-spec, making them as fast as possible around a circuit for its most exclusive clientele.
This made them exceedingly quick, but not very road legal, which must have disappointed a few of its customers because McLaren quickly had six GTRs built for road-use.
This GTR isn’t one of those six, but has been converted by the same specialist which McLaren used to tame its track-demons, Lazante Motorsport, and finished in a fantastic shade of Cerulean Blue.
However, while the P1 GTR squeezed 735kW from its hybrid-V8 drivetrain, it’s not clear whether build #009 is packing all of its original watts.
Part of Lazante Motorsport’s job in converting P1 GTRs into road-spec for McLaren was tuning them to drink English 99-octane fuel.
Again, with a short sales blurb, we can’t be sure it’s engine received the full street treatment. But you can see from pictures its packing road seatbelts, steel brakes, and treaded tyres.
We’re sure it won’t matter what power it’s packing, as most you’ll be more concerned about keeping its lairy aero package clear of speed bumps.
You’ll also have to fly pretty far for the pleasure, as it’s currently located in the Netherlands and reported to be registered in the United Kingdom.
We’re sure distance won’t present too much of a hurdle for its buyer, though, when they’ll need AU$4.5m to make it theirs.
