McLaren F1 LM Replica
H/t: Car Scoops
The track-focused McLaren F1 LM is one of the most limited supercars produced, with just 5 vehicles known to exist. This means that even if one were to be offered for sale, the price tag would be north of $20-million USD, but Danie Brough from South Africa had another idea. He decided to build a replica from scratch, complete with a custom chassis handcrafted from carbon fiber and aluminum. Read more for a video and additional information.

McLaren F1 Pebble Beach Auction
Used cars aren’t the only thing going up in price, as collectors are snatching up limited production supercars at astronomical prices too.

Peter Northrop, CEO of 1016 Industries, recently debuted his company’s 3D-printed exposed carbon fiber body kit for the McLaren 720S, called “Vision”. Not entirely made of exposed carbon fiber, it has teal accents accentuating the body’s lines, while the actual 3D-printed parts include the inner bumper structures, aero ducts as well as the wing linkages. In all, they managed to shave 268-pounds off the vehicle when compared to the factory model. Read more for a video and additional pictures.

McLaren 720S GT3X
The McLaren 720S GT3X did not have to abide by any racing regulations, so this track car takes things to the extreme. In other words, its twin-turbocharged 4.0L V8 now makes 710 horsepower or 740 horsepower when the push-to-pass system is activated. Other upgrades include a massive rear wing for maximum down force, new dive planes and an extended splitter up front, resulting in a vehicle that is the “pinnacle” of design and development for track performance based on the 720S line.

McLaren Can-Am Homage
Famed race car drivers Bruce McLaren and Denny Hulme won five of the six Can-Am races in the 1967 season. The very next year started off with an equally dominant performance by McLaren in the new M8A at the Road America Can-Am race, but the M8B faltered at the next race in Bridgehampton due to engine failure. Fortunately, the team reduced the compression ratio of their engines to 12:1, from 13:1, trading horsepower for increased reliability. Designer Yosuke Yamada pays tribute to these classic race cars with the Can-Am Homage. Read more for a video and additional pictures of this sleek hypercar concept.

McLaren Artura Plug-in Hybrid Supercar
The all-new 2022 McLaren Artura may not be the company’s first plug-in hybrid supercar, but it’s most certainly the first to be built on the McLaren Carbon Lightweight Architecture (MCLA). At 3,303-pounds, it’s powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 generating 577 hp and 431 lb-ft of torque, paired with an electric motor nestled within the transmission bell housing that produces 94 hp and 166 lb-ft of torque, for a combined output of 671 hp and 593 lb-ft of torque.

Novitec McLaren 765LT
The McLaren 765LT may not be as quick as the 720S straight from the factory, but send it over to NOVITEC, and you’ll get one that competes with hypercars. Their Performance Stage 2 upgrade, when paired with a plug-and-play N-Tronic control, generates 843 horsepower and 662 pound-feet of torque from its twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine, enabling it to hit 62mph in a mere 2.5 seconds, while topping out at 205mph.
