McLaren 570S Le Mans Edition Rendered, Might Just Happen

With McLaren now resembling a teenager who has become a man, it's a thrill to watch Woking's range expanding together with the brand itself. In the process, McLaren's MSO division is turning itself into a master of special editions and we're here to talk about a potential future project.
Shown above as a rendering (via Jonsibal), the 570S Le Mans is a supercar that doesn't seem too likely at the moment. With the standard 570S, if we may call it so, already being at a less-than-safe distance from the 650S, it's difficult to believe the Brits would let their Sports Series machines threaten their SuperSport Series hardware.

However, once the 650S is replaced by the tentatively named P14, a move that's expected to take place this year or in 2017, we might just see a Longtail or perhaps a Le Mans version of the 570S.

Since the Sport Series is the automaker's youngest offering, seeing the company linking this to its rich motorsport heritage wouldn't be all that surprising.

In fact, the rumor mill stated the 570S might get a spicy version such as the hypothetical examples mentioned above before it receives a Spider incarnation.

There will always be limitations, though. For one thing, a 570S must reach the same financial league as a Super Sport Series car, no matter how special the first is.

However, if you're willing to predict the future of McLaren versions and editions, it's probably best to take a hint from Porsche, which is the absolute ruler of model derivatives, with the implications of its line-up appearing impossible to understand by a non-car person.

Just like the threads of a carbon fiber piece, the models released by this kind of automakers have to never fully overlap and yet be close enough to allow each other's existence and strengthen the structure they're part of.
