McLaren Factory Driver Alvaro Parente continued his strong start to the 2017 Pirelli World Challenge season on the streets of Long Beach California, breaking the lap record to score pole position, before claiming a lights-to-flag victory.
The new McLaren 720S is already well on the way to achieving cult status, joining the legendary McLaren P1 TM in the LEGO® Speed Champions range of model cars.
McLaren Automotive has released details of the new McLaren 570GT by MSO Concept ahead of its debut on the famed 18th fairway of Pebble Beach golf course at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, the world’s highest-profile competitive display of collector’s cars.
On a busy weekend on both sides of the Atlantic for McLaren, Factory Driver Alvaro Parente starred in the 650S GT3, securing pole position and winning in his first appearance at Long Beach in the Pirelli World Challenge.
The McLaren 650S GT3 began its 2016 European campaign in the Blancpain GT Series Sprint Cup opener at Misano, Italy with a double points finish.
The new McLaren P1™ GTR design concept will make its world debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in August, as McLaren seeks to make the world’s best track-focused drivers’ car.
The name alone suggests how significant the car will be – the first time the GTR moniker was used was when a McLaren F1 GTR won the 1995 Le Mans 24 Hours.
As teams and drivers prepare for this weekend’s running of the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans, McLaren is proud to confirm that the 1995 race-winning McLaren F1 GTR will take to the Goodwood Hill at this summer’s Festival of Speed.
The astonishing new McLaren P1™, has been unveiled in production form at the Geneva Motor Show. During the press conference McLaren Automotive outlined the clear goal for the latest offering – to be the best driver’s car in the world on road and track. To achieve this objective, McLaren is using all of its 50 years of racing experience and success, especially in the fields of aerodynamics and lightweight carbon fibre technology.
The McLaren P1 will have the combined force of two highly-efficient powerplants, offering the optimum mix of superb throttle response, day-to-day drivability and top speed. A mid-mounted 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine and a highly effective electric motor give a combined output of 916PS (903 bhp) and a maximum torque figure of 900Nm, ensuring instantaneous throttle response through the rev range, more akin to a naturally aspirated engine. Emissions of less than 200g/km on the combined cycle are reduced to zero in full electric drive mode, while the Formula 1-derived DRS and IPAS technologies offer an increase in straight-line speed and an instant boost of power.
