RDS Automotive Group captures the essence of the rare McLaren F1 LM
January 27, 2017 — Only five McLaren F1 LM (LM for Le Mans) cars were built in honor of the five McLaren F1 GTRs which finished the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans, including taking the overall win.
The F1 LMs can be identified by their Papaya Orange paint. The F1 LMs were painted in this color in memory of, and tribute to, Bruce McLaren, whose race color was Papaya Orange. Two of the chassis were painted in black with grey trim similar to the Ueno Clinic sponsored Le Mans 24 Hours winning car. These cars were bought by the Sultan of Brunei as such, also feature horizontal stripes down the sides in yellow, red and blue.
Although only five F1 LMs were sold, a sixth chassis exists in the form of XP1 LM, the prototype for modifications to the existing F1 to form the new F1 LM. This car is also painted Papaya Orange and is retained by McLaren.
