The McLaren 650S Le Mans is a limited edition model launched to celebrate the 20th anniversary of McLaren’s victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans with the F1 GTR.
Only 50 examples were manufactured, 49 finished in metallic Sarthe Grey inspired by the livery of the Le Mans race-winning McLaren F1 GTR and only one, this car #5474, in Harrods Yellow, an homage to the Harrods F1GTR which finished in 3rd place after leading for many hours.
Designed by MSO in consultation with Peter Stevens, the designer of the iconic McLaren F1, the McLaren 650S Le Mans takes a number of details from the 1995 race-winner, most notably the roof-mounted ‘snorkel’ air intake. The unique ‘Le Mans Edition’ lightweight wheels, 19 inch at the front, 20 inch at the rear, are styled after the motorsport rims fitted to the 1995 GTR racers. These wear the McLaren developed Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres and house carbon ceramic brakes. The front wings feature subtle louvres to reduce pressure over the front wheels increasing downforce.
The McLaren 3.8-litre twin turbo V8 engine has been redesigned for the 650S and now has an 8,500rpm red-line with new pistons, new valves, recalibrated camshaft timing, improved cylinder heads and a new exhaust system which allied to a new ECU improves engine response.
