McLaren has confirmed that former Formula 1 driver, Bruno Senna will be the mentor for drivers in the P1 GTR Driver Program. Bruno is now a factory driver, so it is no surprise that the English sports car maker would tap into his racing knowledge.

The first P1 GTR has been assembled. It will now complete its build with the team at McLaren Special Operations.

Examples of the competition machine will be a fairly rare sight as only owners of a road going P1s were eligible to purchase the GTR. These owners are allowed to be part of the driving program to make sure they are getting the most out of the car.

Not that long ago we were at the invite only debut of the McLaren P1 GTR at Pebble Beach. That event was for select members of the media and for folks that had purchased a road going McLaren P1.

Now the public will get a chance to see the P1 GTR in person as it makes its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show. The limited production hybrid race car is lighter and more extreme than the road going version, which is expected.

It is a guaranteed to be a rare competition car as well, since the only people that will be allowed to purchase on are people that have bought a street legal P1. This means that at most, only a few hundred of these machines will be made.

The P1 GTR is 110 pounds lighter than the standard P1 and it is designed to create even 10 percent more downforce. The car just looks fast standing still, so we can just imagine how quick it will be on the track.

The GTR will make its public debut along side the new McLaren 675LT. So, make sure to subscribe to us (if you haven’t already) as we’ll make sure to bring you the latest from Geneva starting the first week in March.
