How many will issue a 1.5-liter V6 on the Porsche 911, is not reported. It is known that these will be real TAG TTE P01 1.5 V6T units from old McLaren MP4 / 2 cars. The impact of such an engine for qualifying races was 1075 horsepower, and for the race – 973 power.
In July, Lanzante unveiled a longtail version of the McLaren P1 GTR hypercar. A unique car was built based on the track version of the coupe P1 – GTR. The car changed the front part of the body: there appeared a new splitter and wings with ventilation slots. The extended rear part of the body was supplemented with a massive fixed wing, a diffuser and an exhaust system with four tailpipes.
