McLaren has unveiled a limited-edition of the 650S, which is meant to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the McLaren F1 GTR victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. As the checkered flag fell at the end of the 1995 race, five McLaren F1 GTRs crossed the line to finish 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 13th.

Designed by the McLaren Special Operations team and in consultation with Peter Stevens, the designer of the iconic McLaren F1, the McLaren 650S Le Mans will be offered as a coupé only, and will borrow a number of styling enhancements from race-winning #59 McLaren F1 GTR, like the roof-mounted ‘snorkel’ air intake. The unique ‘Le Mans Edition’ also gets lightweight wheels – 19-inch at the front, 20-inch at the rear that are styled around the design of the motorsport rims fitted to the 1995 racers.

Peter Stevens stated, “It is a fantastic homage to that original design, and to the incredible race result achieved by the team in 1995 at one of the most difficult, and most challenging races in the world.”
