The McLaren ‘650S Le Mans’ limited edition model pays tribute to the 20th anniversary of the famous 24 hour race where four ‘F1 GTR’ cars finished in the top five. A collaboration between McLaren‘s special operations division and designer Peter Stevens, only 50 coupés will be released in order to preserve its uniqueness. Designed with a sarthe grey painted exterior, the car features front wings with subtle louvres to reduce pressure over the lightweight wheels. Speaking about the McLaren ‘650S Le Mans,’ designer Peter Stevens says, ‘The design of the McLaren F1 rewrote the rulebook. It was intended to offer the ultimate, no compromise road driving experience. The fact that it was transformed into a racer, and a race winner, was true testament to the strength and integrity of the original design, which is something I am very proud of.’ Check out the images below: mclaren-650s-le-mans-2 mclaren-650s-le-mans-edition-3
