Initially, the company offered sanctioned road conversions for the F1 GTR racing cars and more recently also worked their magic on the P1 GTR. In addition to road legal versions of McLaren's track-day machine, Lanzante also created a F1 LM version in 2016.

Two years later, the specialist company was commissioned to also create 'GT' version, for which the road legal, long-tail F1 GT formed the inspiration. The very first P1 GT debuted at the 2018 Goodwood Festival of Speed and was based on the twelfth P1 GTR that had already received a road conversion by Lanzante.

The original F1 GT had been conceived back in 1997 to homologate the 'Longtail' version of the F1 GTR racer. As such, it was not surprising that the P1 GT was fitted with a bespoke longer tail. The most instrumental change was the removal of the moveable wing fitted to the P1 GTR. It was replaced by a fixed, much lighter rear wing that was mounted on the lengthened tail.

Further changes include a smoother nose with some of the aerodynamic devices of the P1 GTR removed. Lanzante also completely reworked the interior, which is considerably more luxurious than that of the P1 track-day car.

In addition to the original car, Lanzante can convert a further 12 P1 GTRs to the P1 GT specification. The conversion is easier on P1 GTRs that have already been made road legal by Lanzante. With the new Senna GTR now available, the P1 GT is expected to be the final evolution of the P1.
