To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Le Mans, the high-end brand McLaren launches a special-edition – the 720S Le Mans, a supercar that is limited to just 50 vehicles – that glorifies one of the company’s most remarkable wins on the racetrack. That’s why the 720S Le Mans by McLaren is a perfect example of updated and modernized nostalgia.

The 720S Le Mans Special Edition is straight inspired by the No. 59 F1 GTR that placed first in France two-and-a-half decades ago. Limited to a production run of just 50 modern cars, the 720S exclusive car will be available in two colorways and includes a number of throwbacks unique design elements and special badging.

The wheels take on a five-spoke design inspired by the original F1 GTR itself, harmonizing perfectly with brake calipers colored in gold.
