It’s been 20 years since McLaren won the 24 Hours of Le Mans race. To celebrate that 1995 victory, the brand is releasing the McLaren Special Operations 650s Le Mans Special Edition.

The vehicle takes on inspiration from the #59 McLaren F1 GTR that took home the checkered flag all those years ago. MSO teamed up with McLaren F1 designer Peter Sevens to develop the vehicle, and added a handful of elements not found on the standard 650. Enhancements like the roof-mounted snorkel air intake, carbon fiber front splitter and rear bumper, lightweight wheels and a metallic Sarthe Grey paint job complete with contrasting orange Le Mans branding. The vehicle is still powered by the same twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8 engine, and pumps out 641 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque, a setup that helps the lightweight machine sprint to 62 mph from a stop in just three seconds with a top speed of 207 mph. The interior is draped in black leather and Alcantara with more orange hits found all throughout. The vehicle will be limited to just 50 units, and will carry a sticker price of $370,000 USD when it begins landing in showrooms this summer.
