McLaren Releases Five Le Mans Inspired Senna GTRs

TGR Staff

McLaren has pulled the wraps off five customer orders McLaren Senna GTRs created to celebrate the legendary McLaren F1 GTR race cars that dominated the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans resulting in an overall victory. 

McLaren MSO has dubbed the limited edition cars the 'McLaren Senna GTR LM' and each is designed as an homage to one of the original five McLaren F1 GTRs that took on Circuit de la Sarthe in 1995. The cars won the most grueling racing in motorsports coming in 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 13th,  a stunning achievement for McLaren's first showing at the Le Mans. 

Each car wears a hand-painted livery that pays tribute to the design of each of the original Le Mans cars, each one taking nearly 800 hours to paint. Two of the cars will be coming to the USA purchased by undisclosed customers through McLaren Orlando and McLaren North Jersey. One an homage to the iconic Gulf liveried car, the other ‘The Cesar Car' that took several thousand hours to complete.

The incredible cars of the McLaren Senna GTR LM collection are an exceptionally fitting way to celebrate the 25th anniversary of our Le Mans victory in 1995, that achievement is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest endurance racing performances of all time, but for McLaren, its importance was even greater because it demonstrated an immediate and undeniable connection between the racing DNA of our brand and the start of our road car journey. The roof of each car even features an authentically recreated scrutineering sticker, which is the only piece of vinyl in the livery.

Inside the car, exclusive LM features include a racing steering wheel with anodized gold gear shift paddles and control buttons (in tribute to the McLaren F1’s gold-colored gear linkage); titanium nitride pedals with LM logos; leather door-pull straps, and lightweight carbon fiber racing seats complemented by bespoke headrest embroidery and an MSO six-point racing harness colored black with body-color pads.

Even Le Mans itself had a hand in the creation of these five unique vehicles, in the shape of the ACO. The famous racing club helped facilitate the opportunity for the five GTR LM owners, and each one will enjoy a VIP visit to the 24 Hours of Le Mans race with a chance to drive their own GTR LMs around the circuit on the morning of the race, accompanied by the original F1 GTRs that competed in 1995.
