In 1995 the McLaren F1 GTR took 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 13th
place finnishes at the Le Mans 24 hour race.
To celebrate this racing success, McLaren created a limited
edition of just five F1 LM's - one for every F1 GTR which finished
the race. Whilst the Mclaren F1 LM is a model in its own right,
the concept was that it should be a 1995 F1 GTR, with the minimum
modifications to make it usable on the road.
Using the highly tuned race engine making 680 horsepower, and
weighing 60 kgs (132 lbs) less than the standard car, the McLaren
F1 LM was the highest spec roadgoing Mclaren F1 available. The McLaren F1 LM also features
the race car aerodynamic bodywork, gearbox and 18" inch wheels.
All 5 of the F1 LM's produced were painted in Papaya orange,
paying hommage to the racing colors used by Bruce Mclaren on
his F1 and Can Am race cars.
Inside the McLaren F1 LM, the driver sits in an all carbon
fiber race seat, and the passenger seats are moulded into
the moncoque. With minimal trim, the interior carbon is finished
in high gloss lacquer.
As an interesting note, after McLaren driver Lewis Hamilton
won the 2008 F1 Driver's championship it was revealed that once
he wins two more drivers championships the keys to the McLaren
F1 LM which resides at the McLaren headquarters will be his.
