The McLaren Senna GTR takes up the GTR moniker from legendary predecessors including the McLaren F1 GTR and P1 GTR.

Flewitt went on to say the Senna GTR was given the green light to appease customers who may have missed out on the Senna road auto.

McLaren has revealed an Ultimate Series track-only version of its McLaren Senna at the Geneva Motor Show, the McLaren Senna GT-R Concept.

McLaren says it's taking the "form follows function" approach as it did with the road auto - something which could explain the contentious style - which gives the GTR a wider track and a larger front splitter, as well as doors being as close to the centre of the vehicle as possible and a polycarbonate "ticket" window. It will also get its power from the same 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine as the road vehicle, though McLaren has cranked up the wick to give the GTR over 813 horsepower. Since it doesn't have to conform to pesky on-road regulations, McLaren has been able to give it more of everything - power, grip and downforce. Only 500 copies of the RM 11-03 McLaren Automatic Flyback Chronograph will be produced, each priced at just less than $200K. It's set to produce the "quickest McLaren lap times outside of Formula 1, and become "the fastest sportscar McLaren has ever built". That headline-grabbing claim probably won't stand for much longer, however.

"The track-only McLaren Senna GTR will have more power, more grip and more downforce - up to 1,000kg - than the McLaren Senna and post even faster lap times; the very limited number of customers who secure this auto will be buying the closest experience you can get to a race vehicle without actually lining up on a circuit grid". "The very limited number of customers who secure this auto will be buying the closest experience you can get to a race vehicle without actually lining up on a circuit grid". Seeing how all 500 units of the road-going Senna were sold before it was even launched, we reckon McLaren won't have a hard time finding customers for this new vehicle.

Interestingly, about the only thing this race-focused McLaren doesn't offer is the means to drive it on public roads - this is a track-only speed machine. McLaren, consider us interested!
