The McLaren F1 GTR Wins The 1995 24 Hours Of Le Mans

1995 24 Hours Of Le Mans Highlights With The McLaren F1 GTR's Shocking Win

When McLaren first produced the F1, their intention was that it be exclusively sold as a road car with no plans for a race program. However, the pressure of customers and race teams alike proved too much, so McLaren decided to act fast and appease its loyal supporters by entering a BMW-powered McLaren F1 GTR in the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans. This was the first time that McLaren ran the world’s toughest endurance race and shocked the world with an unlikely victory!
