If you're the type of person that considers the "normal" McLaren P1 a bit too tame, well, you're in luck. There's a McLaren P1 GTR is for sale. It's the track-only version of the P1, with more aero, less interior amenities, and a bunch of race-ready upgrades. You should buy it.

Welcome to You Must Buy, our daily look at the cars you really should be buying instead of that boring commuter sedan.

According to the sellers in Tampa, Florida, this is the first production P1 GTR built, which, if true, makes it a very special car. Painted in yellow with red stripes, it's only seen 900 miles since new. Interestingly, the car wears a Montana license plate, meaning it could be legal to drive on US roads. We're not entirely sure how that's possible, considering Lanzante's street-legal conversion only seems to work for Europe. The ad claims the car is street legal in Europe, but doesn't mention anything about US legality. We reached out to DuPont Registry for more info on its legality on US streets, but it hasn't responded to our inquiry.

Aside from the mysterious plate, this is pretty much a standard P1 GTR. That means a 986-horsepower hybrid-assisted twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 pushing power to the rear wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, and a whole bunch of track capability. Differences between the GTR and a normal P1 include a fixed, lowered suspension, a wider track, bigger brakes, a massive fixed wing, a retuned exhaust, a new diffuser, a stripped interior, six-point racing harnesses, and a set of racing slicks (though this particular car is wearing DOT-legal Pirelli P Zero Corsas).

DuPont Registry doesn't list a price , so we emailed the company. The real asking price? Just $7 million. If you're looking for a P1 to add to your hypercar collection, this is one hell of an example.
