McLaren F1 LM

The legend is back, yup! its a McLaren F1 LM, only 6 built, 5 for the roads and 1 prototype (called XP1 LM). The prototype rests in McLaren technology center (MTC) while out of remaining five, two are owned by the Sultan of Brunei. The LM's are characterized by their distinctive orange color. The ones owned by Sultan of Brunei are black.
LMs were made as road going versions of famous F1 GTR, 5 GTRs were made which participated in LeMans 24 hours in 1995 and won.  
The XP1 LM has been promised to Ron Dennis to be given to Lewis Hamilton if he wins two more world championships, don't forget Lewis and Jenson would be the first people to get McLaren's latest supercar the MP4-12C. The current worth of XP1 LM is around $4 million.
The only difference of LM from its big brothers (the GTRs) was that it didn't have race mandated restrictors. The LM produced 680bhp with 705Nm of torques. It was one of the fastest accelerating McLaren produced, 0-60 in 3.9seconds. 
The F1 LM was slower in top speed as compared to record setting F1. It had a top speed of 225m/h because of the rear spoiler that increased aerodynamic drag.



This is the prototype F1 LM called XP1 LM with rests in McLaren technology centre in Woking, England.

On bodywork terms, LM was identical to the GTR, in picture below bottom two are F1 and F1 GTR and at the top is the LM. Picture says it all...


Truly a masterpiece!!!
