McLaren Gives Five Special Sennas F1 GTR Liveries

Five Sennas a painstaking tribute to 1995 Le Mans entrants

  • A tribute to the original five Le Mans cars

  • Includes some of racing’s most iconic paintjobs


Five more tribute cars are coming from McLaren, and this time they’re a complete set. One for each of the F1 GTRs that finished in the 1995 running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, hand-painted with more than 800 hours of livery work each. Along with a power increase for good measure.

McLaren Special Operations is here when you want a Macca that’s just that bit more special, and this latest collection is special indeed. Surprisingly, they aren’t all going to the same collection but instead will have five different owners. We’re not sure who got the 1st place car and who got the one that finished 13th, but that was probably a fun bidding war.

The cars start with a McLaren Senna GTR, then boost the power by 20 hp over stock for a total of 834 from the 4.0L V8. The cars have a bespoke LM steering wheel with gold anodised paddles and buttons. A six-point racing harness is fitted with GTR LM logos and a 1 of 1 plaque with the VIN on the doorsill.

Each car was hand-painted with a replica or tribute to the original liveries of the GTR racers that finished 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, and 13th in 1995. The logos and trademarks were reproduced with permission, and there is a copy of the car’s original scrutineer’s sticker. Each owner will get to take their car to Le Mans next year for a special driving event during the race weekend.

The winning car copy is the 825/1, an homage to the #59 Ueno Clinic car in charcoal grey. 825/6 copies the Harrods car, car 51 with yellow and green, 825/2 is the Gulf Car, which finished fourth, 825/7 is the Jacardi car finished in Le Mans Blue, and 825/5 is the Cesar car, wearing the most intricate livery, originally done as an art car.
