McLaren has unveiled its Senna GTR concept at the Geneva Motor Show.

The car has been billed as the fastest McLaren outside of Formula One and features a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine producing a minimum of 825 bhp. The revised aerodynamics mean it will be able to create up to 1000kg of downforce.

Pirelli slick tyres, a new race-style transmission and suspension modifications will result in it out-performing the road-going Senna comfortably.

"The McLaren Senna was designed from the outset with the full spectrum of road and track requirements in mind, so developing a GTR version is within the scope of the original project," McLaren Automotive Design Engineering Director, Dan Parry-Williams, said.

"The McLaren Senna GTR Concept unveiled in Geneva is not the finished article but it does give a clear indication of our thinking for the car, which promises to be the most extreme and exciting McLaren to drive for many years, if not ever."

A total of 75 cars will be built with production expected to take place in 2019. The Senna GTR will be available for approximately £1 million.

Earlier today, Red Bull launched the Valkyrie AMR Pro -- an Adrian Newey designed hypercar in collaboration with Aston Martin.
