McLaren P1 GTR

p1gtr.jpg

Not that the P1 isn't already a racing-grade car, McLaren thought it could use a few more tweaks to make the ultimate P1 track car. At this summer's Concours in Pebble Beach, the company will unveil the concept for the most extreme, track-only version of the P1, the GTR.

What we know so far is that the car will definitely be built and will begin production in 2015 when the final 375th P1 has been built. The GTR will only be available to P1 owners and will feature enhanced aerodynamics, a wider track, slick tires, and a newly-tweaked engine that will max out at 986 horsepower. Buyers of the car will also get to drive on some of the world's most famous race tracks with a McLaren support team and you will even have access to McLaren fitness consultations and McLaren designer, Frank Stephenson.

McLaren 650S GT3

mclaren.jpg

McLaren's biggest reveal at the Goodwood Festival of Speed continues their racing heritage into the future with a brand new race car, the 650S GT3. Based on the 650S, the track-ready racer features carbon fiber bodywork that gives the track-ready racer snarling, menacing lines that also aid in the car's aerodynamics.

The body features a 52mm wider track, a new set of wheels and tires, a new nose, tweaked intakes, and a fixed rear wing made from carbon fiber. Inside is a cockpit designed with driver comfort in mind with increased leg and headroom, a new racing seat, and better ventilation. Under the hood is McLaren's remarkably efficient 3.8L twin-turbo V8 which produces 493 horsepower and an upgraded ECU and a new six-speed gearbox. 15 650S GT3s will be built for the 2015 racing season and if you're lucky enough to have a team with the previous model, McLaren will offer an upgrade package to bring it up to the new spec.

£330,000, McLaren

Audi R8 LMX

What could Audi possibly add to the R8 to make it even better? How about a set of laser beams? Yes, the company will be adding a set of laser high beams to its latest version of the R8 supercar which will have one laser module in each headlight, each having twice the range of an all-LED headlight. The system is so advanced that it uses a camera sensor system that detects other drivers on the road and adjusts the light pattern accordingly and keeps them out of beam's direction. Performance-wise the car is as fast as ever with 570-hp that helps the car reach a 0-62 time of 3.4 seconds from its 5.2L V10.

€210,000, Audi

Koenigsegg's One:1 is something that would probably would come out of Lockheed Martin if they were building high-speed automobiles. This fighter jet on four wheels produces 1,360 hp, 737 lb-ft of torque and it all comes from a turbocharged 5.0L V8. Active aerodynamics, a body that's dripping in carbon fiber, and 3D printed titanium contribute to an advanced automotive architecture that we couldn't even begin to understand. What we do know for sure is that this thing is fast, USS Enterprise fast. Koenigsegg will be building six examples of the One:1 and if you were hoping to trade in your Veyron for one, unfortunately all six are spoken for.
