Behold: The McLaren F1 Longtail-Inspired 'P1 GT'

Lanzante - the company responsible for road-converting P1 GTRs - has made this incredible F1 GT Longtail tribute
Behold: The McLaren F1 Longtail-Inspired 'P1 GT'

It’s been quite a day for rich people toys, hasn’t it? The day kicked off with the outrageous one-off Aston Martin V8 Cygnet, which was closely followed by the exquisite Singer ‘DLS’ 964. And now there’s something just as hellishly expensive (we assume), but completely different: the McLaren P1 GT.

Reportedly built for an exceptionally wealthy Middle Eastern client, this McLaren F1 GT Longtail-inspired beast is the work of Lanzante. The specialist company made headlines not so long ago for road-converting several examples of the P1 GTR, but the firm’s latest work is on another level entirely.

All the details are there. We have the roof scoop, the lengthened rear bodywork and a rear wing that’s noticeably larger than the already giant aero piece on the standard GTR. The splitter is longer and at the back there’s a new diffuser, completed by a rather naughty quad exhaust. It’s even finished in a similar shade of green on the original. We approve.

Technical details haven’t yet been divulged, so we don’t know whether or not the hybrid-boosted 3.8-litre power plant has been left alone. If it has, it’s not a huge deal: it is good for 986bhp in stock trim, after all.

With the new aero package, the GT should be a reasonable amount quicker on track then the ‘regular’ P1 GTR. You might remember Lanzante drove one of its road-converted cars over the Nurburgring, set a blistering 6min 43.2sec lap and then drove home again, so who knows - perhaps a follow-up is in order.

Come on Lanzante, you know you want to…



The F1 GTR approves👍

That is just the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.

“We may be a small country, but we’re a great one too. We are the country of Shakespeare, Churchill, The Beatles, Sean Connery, Harry Potter, Bentley, Rolls Royce, Aston Martin, the Peel P50, the Peel P45, David Beckham’s right foot, David Beckham’s left foot, come to that”

Because the original F1 ‘longtail’ was a nickname, it’s actually called the F1 GT

Also, it’s not a McLaren product, it’s built by Lanzante who probably wouldn’t be able to licence the LT brand
