Car Of The Day: 2015 McLaren 650S Le Mans

Built to celebrate the 20th anniversary of McLaren’s win at the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans, the 650S Le Mans pays tribute to the McLaren F1 GTR. A comprehensive design was created in consultation with Peter Stevens, the man who designed the McLaren F1 alongside Gordon Murray. It also has unique lightweight wheels inspired by the motorsport-specification rims of the original race car.

Power and torque figures for the McLaren 650S Le Mans remain unchanged from the standard production model, producing 650PS (641 bhp) and 678 Nm (500 lb ft) of torque. This sprint from zero to 62 mph is achieved in three seconds and the top speed is 207 mph.

Visual carbon fibre features throughout the limited edition model, including the front splitter and rear bumper. The limited edition coupés also feature MSO-developed extended side blades and the distinctive MSO rear diffuser. The unique look of the McLaren 650S Le Mans exterior is further enhanced by the metallic Sarthe Grey exterior paint colour, inspired by the colour of the race-winning McLaren F1 GTR.
