The McLaren F1 LM is a street-legal version of the F1 GTR racecar, built to celebrate the 5 F1 GTRs that finished the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans race.
- Text originally from the McLaren F1 LM's Wikipedia article.
In late 1995, McLaren built five F1 LMs (LM for Le Mans) in honour of the five McLaren F1 GTR's that finished the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans and took the overall win.
McLaren designed the standard F1 as an ultimate road car, in the sense that it strives to be comfortable and usable in everyday conditions despite being a potent sports car. However, the LM edition is a lower and stiffer, track-oriented vehicle, with a stripped down, bare interior, and solid aluminium bushings in place of the rubber bushings in the suspension system and without the Ground Plane Shear Centre system on the standard F1.

The F1 LM has a very high top speed, the fastest in Class B, even higher than that of the Apollo N. It is also faster than almost all Class A cars. Its handling and nitro efficiency are both sufficient for a car with such high speed, however its acceleration is mediocre. It is similar to the Koenigsegg Jesko in that it has a very high top speed for its class and extremely good drifting, but slow acceleration. However, the F1's nitro efficiency is much better than the Jesko's.
The F1 can compete very well with other high-end Class B cars like the Lamborghini Huracán EVO Spyder and Lotus Evija, as it is significantly faster than all of them. Provided the player can keep speed well enough, the F1 will quickly speed ahead. However, due to its restrictive availability, players will most likely win it at lower stars, where it may not be as competitive.
Players who participated in the '15 years of Asphalt' LTE could earn up to 15 blueprints for the car, however, the key was not rewarded.
The key could be obtained from the McLaren F1 LM's Grand Prix Event.
