McLaren Dealers Make Special Senna LM Celebrating F1 GTR Le Mans Win

Two dealers have factory special ops build more powerful Senna LM tributes

  • Papaya orange and 814 hp tribute to ’95 win

  • Just five made, matching five 1995 Le Mans win replicas


A pair of McLaren dealers have teamed up to commission a car of their own. The Mclaren Senna LM in a trim that pays tribute to the Le Mans-winning F1 GTR of 1995 and the five F1 GTR-style road cars that will be built to commemorate the win.

The original tribute F1s came in McLaren’s Papaya Orange, the company’s longstanding racing colours. They were fitted with an engine tuned for more power than standard, got redesigned cam covers, and had the lighter and more aerodynamic GTR bodywork, all making them some of the fastest of all roadgoing F1s.

Taking inspiration from that, McLaren Orlando and McLaren North Jersey have commissioned McLaren Special Operations to make roadgoing Senna LM cars with the same 814 hp as the track-only version. The sennas get that same Papaya paint, looking just like the team’s race car.

There are more than just paint colours picked out here, and MSO has given the cars new polished port cylinder heads, fitted OZ wheels that match the original’s exactly, and the cars have quad-tailpipes with satin gold tips.

Revised bodywork gives the cars aero enhancements as well as making them more closely resemble the ideas of the GTRs, as do 24k gold heat shields, one of the coolest bits of the original F1. The interior is fully bespoke including Titanium Nitride foot pedals and LM branding.

The five cars will be sold exclusively from those two dealers, so if you live near Orlando or Northern New Jersey, you just might end up seeing one.
