McLaren P1 LM
The talented team at McLaren Special Operations built 24 units of the P1 GTR, allowing some very lucky drivers to enjoy some refined supercars. However, those with more money than most were still not content with McLaren’s offering, which is why we are now staring at the McLaren P1 LM. Designed for private track days organized by McLaren, this 986-hp machine is a hypercar with road-legal status. As such, 5 units were built and inspired by the P1 GTR to be driven anywhere – aside from the prototype, the McLaren P1 XP1 LM. Aiming at honoring the iconic 1990s F1 LM beast, this modified P1 will definitely get anyone’s attention.
An upgraded version of the bi-turbo 3.8-liter V8 engine and a modified hybrid setup will allow the driver to make use of 1,000 PS (986 hp), with the powerplant hiding within an engine bay featuring gold-plated heat shielding, while the catalytic converter pipes and exhaust headers were constructed out of Inconel.
Put on a diet, the super has let go of some of the race parts, while a modified rear wing, a beefier front splitter and dive planes were fitted in order to improve aerodynamics. A fully exposed carbon fiber roof and other lightweight components contribute to the overall performance of the supercar.
On the inside, exposed carbon fiber adorns the McLaren’s dashboard, headliner, center console, seat backs, floor mats, and the instrument cowl. The leather-wrapped steering wheel was inspired by the one Lewis Hamilton used in his McLaren MP4/23 back in 2008. All five units will come with a tool kit, comprising a diagnostics tablet, a wheel socket, and a torque wrench. Also part of the package is a battery charging system, as well as a tailored car cover, as well as a 1:8 scale model of the McLaren.
