I think these are so rare and few that you guys can admit how big the engine displacement is

4L such as p14 then? but that would mean a completely new powertrain so then its hardly a p1 anymore in my eyes

Of course it's a P1 - just happens to be one that pushes the limits of what McLaren and specialist outfit Lanzante are capable of now. That was the whole idea behind the project.

My understanding is that the LM prototype had not yet been fitted with the 4.0L when it ran at Goodwood, but certainly has it now. Also Lanzante are in the process of building up the first two production chassis and those were initially delivered equipped with the 4.0L direct from McLaren.

I wonder how long until a blog picks up on this to report it as news

It is interesting that they'd use the new/upgraded unit. Does anyone know the exact specifications yet?

Jeremy Clarkson weighed in earlier, but he wasn't too specific.

I wouldn't say I have an 'inside line' in to the P1LM, although it was nice of Neil to say so.


Neil, a Beer is always a good idea, perhaps we can badger Cathryn to join us (although she may get bored of our McLaren chats rather swiftly....)?


XP1LM is still in development, and a few tweaks here and there is the norm at prototype stage. Expect a nice little update in the near future, one that has been bugging a few people...

AIUI all the LM's are in various stages of 'build', with 2, maybe 3 by now, being with Lanzante's for fettling to get them to spec.


As of the weekend before last, the tyres it wore were Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2's , with 325/30ZR20 (!) at the rear - Sorry I can't remember what was on the front size-wise but what has been mentioned earlier sounds about right


I should really remember to drop by here more often,, other social media outlets suck up a lot of my time, but I'll do my best.....

So as I understand it, the P1 LM should be faster than a P1 GTR if you put it on slicks. 60kg lighter and 40% more downforce.

It's certainly lighter, with the heavier gubbins aka air jacks etc not added at build stage within McLaren and some smaller additional weight added to the bare bones by way of handbrake calipers etc etc at Lanzante's the net result will be a fair reduction to an already supermodel-skinny GTR.


With the larger rear wing and front spoiler, I'd expect DF to be at least 40% more....

40% more. Not sure chaps. That would be pushing 900 kg.

Err no.

That's the claim.

It's sad that this car will almost certainly never get a lap test, except for that one run at Goodwood.

True. They were wrong on GTR tyre width too. Isn't just them who's claiming it though, but then copy and paste is a dangerous thing.

Seeing as they've got basic factual inaccuracies in there, wouldn't surprise me that they got the downforce wrong
