Lanzante to build seven one-off McLaren F1 tributes

The team that claimed McLaren’s first-ever 24 Hours of Le Mans victory is commemorating the 25th anniversary of the historic win by building seven McLaren F1 GTR-inspired LM 25 Edition versions of McLaren's contemporary range. In 1995, a total of seven McLaren F1s were entered into the twice-around-the-clock endurance race. Four of those cars finished inside the top five, including the winning #59 car of Lanzante Motorsport, driven by Yannick Dalmas, Masanori Sekiya and J.J. Lehto.
