This year, the McLaren F1 GTR celebrates the 20th anniversary since it won the 24 Hours of Le Mans and in order to mark this event, McLaren Special Operations (MSO) unveiled the 650S Limited Edition. This special vehicle will be manufactured in a limited edition of just 50 units and each unit will be inspired by the F1 GTR.

As a result, the 650S Special Edition comes with a new carbon fiber front splitter, MSO louvered front fenders, special Limited Edition MSO forged alloy wheels as well as new McLaren orange brake calipers.

Moreover, the vehicle gets a new MSO roof snorkel, carbon fiber MSO side blades and a unique MSO paint. The interior was upgraded too and the 650S Special Edition arrives with steering wheel wrapped in Alcantara, unique branded floor mats, carbon fiber design elements, leather, Alcantara as well as unique seats featuring the centre in McLaren Orange Alcantara and branding to headrest.

There are no details regarding any engine improvements, which means we will find the standard 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, delivering 650 hp (478 kW) and 678 Nm (500 lb-ft) of torque.

The engine is able to push the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.0 seconds, to 200 km/h (62 mph) in 8.4 seconds, while top speed is 329 km/h or 204 mph. Despite these impressive numbers, fuel consumption is 24.2 mpg or 11.7 l/100 km on the EU combined cycle, with CO2 emissions of 275 g/km.
