The McLaren F1 LM is a special variant of the McLaren F1 that is based on the F1 GTR.

It was built to celebrate the F1 GTR's win at the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans, which to this day remains as the only case of winning the race on its debut. Only five units of the car were manufactured for sale and an extra prototype chassis (codename XP1 LM) that was used as a test mule is now preserved at the McLaren Technology Centre.

The production number was given by the number of the F1 GTRs that finished the 1995 race. All of the units were reportedly painted in Papaya orange.

It uses an unrestricted version of the 1995 F1 GTR's engine, making it the most powerful McLaren F1 variant ever produced. It has a top speed of 225 mph (362 km/h), which is lower than that of the original F1 due to its aerodynamic configuration creating more downforce but more drag as well.
