Lanzante will turn supercars into a kind of racing F1 GTR

British firm Lanzante will release seven unique McLaren’s to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the F1 GTR victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The series will include the 600LT and 765LT coupe and spider, Senna, Senna GTR and one more yet unconfirmed model.

In 1995, McLaren donated the F1 GTR prototype to Lanzante for Le Mans. The team was sponsored by Kokusai Kaihatsu UK, and Lanzante took over the entire organization and management of a small group of McLaren employees. The car showed the best time in qualifying and then won the race, beating its closest rival – the prototype Courage C34 – by a full circle. Lanzante and McLaren went down in marathon history as the first team to win their debut race.

In honor of this event, Lanzante will release seven special supercars. Six will be built on the basis of the coupe and spider 600LT and 765LT, Senna, Senna GTR, and the seventh is still in the confirmation status.

All vehicles will be finished in Ueno Gray with bright gray accents on the underbody, F1 GTR-style carbon fiber wheels with titanium bolts, gold-tone brake calipers and an LM 25 logo. Lightweight seats and Alcantara steering wheel will be added. …

There are no changes in technique. Lanzante will only replace the standard heat shield with a gold ceramic one and paint the exhaust pipes in a golden color.

In addition, a special series emblem will be applied to the engine casing, and a technical inspection sticker will be placed on the engine shield, imitating the one on the winning car at Le Mans.

Buyers can redesign their car, or order a new one, which will be sent straight to Lanzante. The cost of the entire package of improvements – 144,000 pounds sterling
