January 21, 2015 / by / 0 Comment

McLaren has launched the bespoke version of the 650S to commemorate the 20th anniversary of its 24 Hours of Le Mans victory in 1995. The automaker will manufacture exclusive Le Mans Edition expected to price around £244,500 ( $371,500 ) at the current exchange rates.

The 650S was first revealed at last year’s Geneva Motor Show, which retired company’s four-year-old MP4-12C models. The new sport series stands next to the automaker’s much cherished F1 supercars. With the arrival of Le Mans edition, the 650S series has now a total four variants. All the vehicles retain twin-turbo 3.8L V8 to power them and is also featured in the McLaren MP4 12C and the P1 hybrid supercars. In short, the latest version is superposed to match the power of 640 horses and generate 500 pound-feet of torque, which will be hard to absorb by its contemporaries.

The 650S Le Mans special edition sports black exterior that goes bolder with roof-snorkel (as also seen in F1 GTR), orange brake calipers and carbon ceramic discs, horizontal blinder-styled front guards and edgy side blades. Additionally, carbon fiber inclusions are deployed in front splitter, front bumper, and rear diffuser. The 19-20″ wheels shine up with radial five-flare star columns and McLaren-developed Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres.

A total 50 units will be made at McLaren factories, destined for fortunate buyers around the world.
