Lanzante Just Revealed All Six Special Edition McLarens to Celebrate the F1 GTR’s 1996 Le Mans Win

LISTEN 03:06

It wasn’t that long ago that British automotive company Lanzante teased the LM25 series of special-edition McLarens that it’s building to celebrate the F1 GTR’s 1996 Le Mans win. Now, we’re finally getting a look at all six models, and these cars are, quite possibly, the best tribute models we’ve ever seen. The company has designed a kit for every McLaren currently available today along with 600LT, which recently went out of production.

Lanzante LM25 – A True Tribute to the McLaren Le Mans-Wining McLaren F1 GTR

If you were to time travel back to 1995 and watch the iconic F1 GTR make that legendary Le Mans win, you’d see a lot of black, dark grey, and silver. And that’s why every model of the LM25 series will be finished in those exact colors – a proper nod to the icon of icons. The main color here is the Ueno Grey paint that almost perfectly mimics the F1’s Tokyo Ueno Clinic gray livery. There are also other various shads of gray scattered across the exterior, including grey-tinted carbon fiber. Wrapping up the exterior enhancements include new, five-spoke carbon wheels finish in grey, gold calipers, and the barely visible, ghosted 59 on the door – a tribute to the original white-and-black “59” on the door of the F1 GTR.

The interior of each LM25 model features F! FTR seats with the LM25 logo on the headrest, gold interior switches, gold pedals, and a red-and-blue racing harnesses – the latter of which matches that of the Le Mans-winning F1 GTR. There aren’t any other major upgrades to speak of, but you can opt for a Ueno Gray key with the LM25 logo and gold, ceramic-coated heat shields for some extra bling. There are no engine upgrades made as part of the LM25 conversion, so your McLaren will come back to you with the same power output and performance it had coming off the production line. It will, however, but a tad bit lighter thanks to the a few bits of shaved weight here and there, including the titanium wheel bolts which shave off seven kilograms or about 15 pounds.

The LM25 conversion is available for the following models:

The LM25 conversion, regardless of what model you have or want, takes some three months to complete and will set you back £144,000 or about $190,000 at current exchange rates. You can bring you currently owned McLaren to Lanzante for customization or you can order a new model and have it sent directly to the company for the conversion. Obviously, if you’re looking to have the 600LT converted, you’ll need to supply the one you already own since it’s out of production.
