James Hunt Tribute McLaren P1 GTR Coming to Goodwood

James Hunt tribute McLaren P1 GTR-2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed

McLaren will race a special P1 GTR built in honor of legendary F1 driver James Hunt at 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

What sets this P1 GTR apart from the rest, you might wonder.

Well technically, it is similar to the highly exclusive, track-only P1 which is in turn based on the road car. However, on the outside, the car is wrapped in a livery inspired by the crash helmet worn by James Hunt in 1976 when he won the first Formula 1 championship for McLaren.

The 986 hp car will take part in the hill climb event with Bruno Senna at the wheel. Expect the James Hunt tribute Mclaren to set a quick time this year, but whether it’s enough to beat the current record set by a Nissan GTR Nismo Time Attack will have to be seen.

Furthermore, McLaren will also bring road-legal P1 GTR by Lanzante to Goodwood. Despite the minor changes, it’s still a fairly quick car and will be something to look out for this year.
