This was effectively a road legal version of the Le Mans winning F1 GTR. Lanzante ltd. was responsible for running the winning car and is today a leading McLaren specialist. Taking a page out of the history book and with full consent from McLaren, the British company has now created the McLaren P1 LM. As the name suggests, it is a fully road legal version of the P1 GTR track-day machine.

Based on the P1 GTR chassis, the P1 LM features several subtle modifications to make it more suitable to use on the road. The car is fitted with bespoke wheels, while as much as 60 kg has been shaved off the GTR's weight by, among other things, removing the air-jack system and fitting a lightweight titanium exhaust system. To make road registration more straightforward, the P1 LM features the production P1's hybrid drivetrain. It has however been tuned to produce a combined 1,000 hp just like the GTR's drivetrain. Further changes include a subtle redesign of the front splitter and rear wing. The interior is fully upholstered in Alcantara.

Lanzante debuted the prototype P1 LM at the 2016 Goodwood Festival of Speed where it was driven up the hill by former Indy 500 winner Kenny Brack. Despite running a fully road legal machine, he clocked the second fastest time of the weekend. The Swede will be back behind the wheel to further develop the car at the Nürburgring Nordschleiffe circuit. In addition to the prototype, Lanzante will build a further five cars; one in the same metallic grey as the prototype and the other four in the papaya orange also used for most of the F1 LMs. Customer deliveries will start early in 2017.
