McLaren releases the 720S Le Mans special edition to celebrate the 25th anniversary of its legendary Le Mans victory in 1995.

30 Jul 2020 | International News : U.K.

McLaren Automotive is celebrating one of McLaren's greatest motorsport achievements - victory on its first attempt in the 24 Hours of Le Mans - with a special edition 720S coupe. Just 50 of this Le Mans edition will be available worldwide. 

The 720S Le Mans has been created to mark 25 years since McLaren F1 GTR no. 59 won the world-famous endurance race. Driven by JJ Lehto, Yannick Dalmas and Masanori Sekiya, the car took the chequered flag on 18 June, 1995.

The victory at Le Mans ensures McLaren a place in motorsport history as winners of the French 24-hour classic
Taking the 720S supercar to a new level of exclusivity, each of the Le Mans edition cars carries a dedication plate featuring a 'McLaren 25 Anniversary Le Mans' logo.

Customers have a choice of exterior and interior colour combinations, with all cars featuring a portfolio of unique features as standard, such as 'McLaren 25 anniversary Le Mans' logo on lower body side panel, a unique five-spoke LM wheels that echoes the design of the no. 59 F1 GTR wheels and also feature 'Le Mans' etching, carbon fibre racing seats with embroidered 'McLaren 25 anniversary Le Mans' logo on headrests as well as on floor mats. The fully functional roof scoop channels air to provide additional cooling for the powertrain and helps to drive heat evacuation - ideal for the additional demands of circuit driving.

The celebratory 720S is available in McLaren Orange or Sarthe Grey, with orange and grey interior colours to contrast or complement
The carbon fibre louvred front fenders reduce aerodynamic lift generated by the rotation of the front wheels, as well as reducing vehicle weight. 720S Le Mans owners will be able to experience the astonishing performance delivered by the mid-mounted, 710bhp 4.0-litre McLaren engine.

The twin-turbocharged V8 propels the car from zero to 100km/h in 2.9 seconds, zero to 200km/h in 7.8 seconds and on to a top speed of 341km/h. A carbon fibre Monocage II central structure and Proactive Chassis Control II suspension system help to ensure that the 720S is the lightest car in its class, with an unparalleled breadth of dynamic ability.

In common with every McLaren 720S, an extensive range of optional specification is offered, with McLaren Special Operations (MSO) Defined and MSO Bespoke treatments also available to owners' requirements. To further enhance the motorsport connection and for track use, a titanium harness bar and six-point harnesses from the MSO Defined range can be added. Satin finish visual carbon fibre air vents, extended shift paddles and extended sill trim with McLaren branding from the same range are also available, and two option packs of satin finish visual carbon fibre interior components can be specified.
