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.

Moreover, the vehicle gets a new MSO roof snorkel, carbon fiber MSO side blades and a unique MSO paint.
