The 24 Hours of Le Mans represents the pinnacle of auto endurance racing. From shocking crashes to untimely mechanical failures, there’s a lot that can go wrong over the course of a day. As such, it usually takes years of persistence before an auto manufacturer can take to the track with any success. That is unless you’re McLaren.
With its Le Mans debut in 1995, McLaren not only won the race outright but also dominated the field. Taking 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, and 13th, the iconic F1 GTR proved its racing pedigree and then some. So in order to pay homage to the 25th anniversary of that historic win, McLaren has built five specially-made ‘LM’ Senna GTR’s. With over 800 hours of paintwork, each car wears a stunning reimagination of its twin’s livery. What’s more is that it also sports a distinctive ‘1-of-1’ dedication plaque that includes the original F1 GTR chassis number identifier as well as the date of the race, the names of the drivers, and the position in which they finished. And don’t think that McLaren meant these to be trailer queens — at the 2021 Le Mans circuit, all five owners will be able to participate in an unprecedented driving experience.
