British performance automaker McLaren first debuted as a constructor at the Le Mans 24-hour race back in 1995, bringing seven F1 GTRs to the race, which impressively finished first, third, fourth and fifth, with car #59 — driven by Masanori Sekiya, Yannick Dalmas, and JJ Lehto — taking home the win. In celebration of the 25th anniversary of this momentous victory, McLaren is now crafting a 720S Le Mans limited edition, offering just 50 across the world.
Available in either a sleek Sarthe Grey or the brand’s most iconic McLaren Orange, both color options come with a functional roof scoop finished in glossy black along with carbon fiber front fenders, while various other body components such as the lower front bumper, the lower sides of the body, and the rear bumper are all dressed in Ueno Grey. The wheels take on a five-spoke design inspired by the original F1 GTR itself, paired immaculately with brake calipers colored in gold. As for its interior, seating comes in the form of carbon fiber racing seats wrapped in black Alcantara with a matching trim either in gray or orange. A titanium harness bar and six-point seatbelts are optional for those who prefer to take the ride on track, while other customization options are made available via the company’s MSO Defined and MSO Bespoke programs.
Performance-wise, the Le Mans special edition retains the standard 720S 4.0-liter M840T twin-turbo V8 engine, capable of pushing out a whopping 710 horsepower and 568 pound-feet of torque. Working with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, the car can make 0-62 mph in just 2.9 seconds and hit a top speed of 212 mph.
Limited to just 50 units made, the McLaren 720S Le Mans special edition will begin delivery some time in September. There’s currently no pricing information from the company, but expect it to be north of the $299,000 USD price tag of the standard edition.
Elsewhere in the automotive world, a 1968 Lamborghini Miura P400 is currently up for auction.
