Not German, not McLaren, but it is a one-off.

Thank you for the point. This photo shows the car on the grid to the '500 km race on the Nürburgring (easily to identify, due to the very prominent tower in the background) in 1971. You see the grid mixed up by prototypes and touring cars in one race!

The circuit was so long that it could accomodate massive entries. Here's a better image of the car, a later version from 1972.
