2016 marked the 40th anniversary of James Hunt’s 1976 Formula 1 Drivers’ World Championship driving a McLaren, and the marque has paid tribute by unveiling a special Mclaren P1 GTR.

This one-off example is decorated in the same simple livery as Hunt’s helmet, black with bands of red, blue and yellow to represent his childhood boarding school – Wellington College in England. This special P1 GTR is a track monster – powered by a 735kW mid-mounted engine and featuring an enormous rear wing with F1 style DRS capability. It actually driven up the iconic Goodwood Hill with Top Gear presenter Chris Harris, McLaren Driver Programme Mentor Bruno Senna and James’ son Freddie all at the wheel.
