McLaren 650S Le Mans Edition

McLaren won the 24 Hours of Le Mans back in 1995, along with 3rd-, 4th-, 5th-, and 13th-place finishes. Fast forward 2015, and the British automaker and their Special Operations team is celebrating the victory with a McLaren 650S “Le Mans” Edition. Inspiration comes from the #59 McLaren F1 GTR and was crafted in partnership with McLaren F1 designer Peter Stevens. Some styling cues are brought over from that iconic F1 GTR, including the addition of a roof-mounted “snorkel” air intake. You can also spot louvres on the front wings to increase downforce while special lightweight wheels reminiscent of those on the 1995 winners are shown here, wrapped in Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires. The 650S Le Mans Edition is also fitted with a ton of carbon fiber components. There’s the front splitter and rear bumper, MSO-developed extended side blades and the MSO rear diffuser. The paint job is custom here as well, a metallic Sarthe Grey with hints of McLaren Orange. Hop into the cockpit and you’ll see a blend of black leather and Alcantara, with the two seats featuring contrasting orange Alcantara down the center and an embossed Le Mans logo on the headrest. Power remains unchanged from the stock 650S, dishing out 641 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque from the twin-turbo V8. A 0 to 62 mph time comes in at 3.0 seconds with a top speed of 207 mph. Only 50 McLaren 650S Le Mans edition supercars are to be available come later this year, each priced at $370,000 USD.
