Following an early December reveal, McLaren has published additional details and images with their 650S Coupe Le Mans special edition.

The McLaren F1 GTR triumphed in the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race (17, 18 June) and now the Woking-based automaker is celebrating the 20th anniversary with a limited-run 650S priced at £244,500. Only 50 cars will be built and all of them are going to be coupes without any mechanical upgrades compared to the stock version.

Developed by MSO in collaboration with McLaren F1 designer Peter Stevens, the 650S Le Mans can be visually distinguished by the "snorkel" air intake mounted on the roof as a throwback to the legendary F1. It serves the purpose of channeling airflow to the twin-turbo V8 3.8-liter engine while the front wings boast subtle louvres which increase downforce.

The 650S Le Mans also gets special 19-inch front & 20-inch rear alloy wheels styled after the ones installed on the #59 Le Mans-winning F1 GTR and are wrapped around in Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires. The look is completed by standard carbon ceramic brakes matched with orange calipers.

McLaren says the 650S Le Mans will be sold globally deliveries will start in mid-2015. All 50 buyers will also receive a double invitation to a 20th anniversary celebration party set to be organized on the famous track in France.
