A Peek Into The McLaren P1™ GTR Workshop. Located in Woking

In the picture here you are looking at a dozen McLaren P1™ GTRs sitting in a workshop. This is not a workshop in Asia, or the garage of some billionaire. This is in Woking, UK. What you see is 12 carbon fibre MonoCage chassis, 12 carbon fibre steering wheels inspired by our Formula 1™ racing cars, 12 super-lightweight Inconel and titanium alloy exhausts, 12 sets of race-proven Pirelli tyres, and 12 twin-turbo V8 hybrid powertrains each producing 1000PS (986bhp).

This incredible collection, just a selection of the limited production run of McLaren P1™ GTRs, is gathered inside the new McLaren P1™ GTR Workshop. Located in Woking, England, in close proximity to McLaren Special Operations (MSO) and our McLaren GT race team, the recently opened facility is solely dedicated to looking after these track-only McLaren models. Here, hand-picked technicians and engineers ready each car for bespoke events at world-class race circuits, to which McLaren also ships over 80 tonnes of support equipment, from telemetry systems to Pirelli tyres.

It’s all part of the McLaren P1™ GTR Driver Programme, an ownership experience as unique as driving the McLaren P1™ GTR. Customers don’t just own the fastest and most exciting McLaren this side of our Formula 1™ cars, but also experience the world of McLaren like few have enjoyed it before.

From the moment a customer enters the McLaren P1™ GTR Driver Programme, they have access to our most advanced facilities and highly skilled personnel. Frank Stephenson, McLaren Design Director, can help a customer design their car’s livery if they wish (hence the variety on display); each customer is fitted for a unique carbon fibre seat, and measured for a tailor-made race suit and helmet. They spend time with their personal fitness trainer too, and together with their driver coach, undergo simulator sessions at the McLaren Technology Centre (MTC) in Woking to ensure they get the most from their car.


Each of these elements is geared towards preparing customers, both mentally and physically, for the driving events at world-class race circuits – the pinnacle of the bespoke Driver Programme. Supported by dedicated McLaren driver coaches, engineers and mechanics, is it the same experience that a professional racing driver would go through on a race weekend, as the team work closely with the drivers to hone their skills and push them to new levels.
