Here's Why the McLaren F1 Is the Greatest Car Ever Made

  • Am 19 Mär 2019 veröffentlicht
    The McLaren F1 is one of the most famous cars in history -- and possibly the very best car in history. Today I'm reviewing the McLaren F1, and I'm taking you on a full tour of the McLaren F1 -- then I'm getting the McLaren F1 out on the road with Jay Leno.

    There was a lot of fudging numbers to get that #1 spot. The F1 never handled properly, at least not the road car version. I guarantee you a Chiron will corner faster and more stable. The F1 neither had the tires, nor the downforce, hence the awesome top speed. of course you could try to fit it with more modern rubber, but Mclaren will frown upon that since they would charge you $50,000 for them to do so.

    Leno's cars loving self half redeems him, from the late night wars. But doing this for Doug, money or not, gives him another 25% redemption.

      Sure the engine is a masterpiece but let's be honest. It's the seamless integration only an F1 team in it's prime can pull off which lead to this level of perfection.
      A lot more work and money is in the car/chassis itself. Unlike let's say a dodge deamon.

    It wasn't this car that won LeMans it was a purpose-built McLaren F1 GTR they want LeMans two completely different cars. Also the F1 had issues the transmission being one of them handling issues being the other the car was and is a nightmare to drive.

    • YoureDumbForLife

      +RED S7VN So, I'll ask again. Provide proof of any street legal 911 Turbo beating an F1 on the track? Those models you listed are heavily modified 911s to the point of being track cars that you can take on the road. The McLaren was built as a road car. The times you quote are also from cars that are nigh on 20 years newer.

    • RED S7VN

      +YoureDumbForLife 911 GT1 won LM. As for track times when will go for the Pinnacle of all tracks. Nurburgring a prototype F1 XP5 did it in 7:11 while the 911 GT2RS did it in 6:46, 911 GT3RS 6:56, 911 GT3 7:05 and 7:12.
      Not only did they all beat a heavily modified prototype they were all street legal.

      +RED S7VN Which street legal Porsche 911 Turbo won Le Mans? Provide proof of any street legal 911 Turbo beating an F1 on the track?

    • RED S7VN
      RED S7VN Vor Tag

      +YoureDumbForLife here's the problem none of the LeMans winning cars are street cars to include the F1 LM GTR. It was a nightmare to drive because they rushed production on the car had too much power in the wheelbase was wrong. You talk to anyone who spent any time behind the wheel of one they will tell you it is a nightmare to drive a car in anything but a straight line. While you can take a Porsche 911 Turbo from the same air and it'll run laps around the F1 on the track and it too has no driver's aids. though this car is impressive the Callaway Sledgehammer outperform this car by the Leaps and Bounds more than 10 years prior. Of all the McLarens this is the least impressive. Other than top speed it really offers nothing.

    • YoureDumbForLife
      YoureDumbForLife Vor Tag

      Not sure what the point is with your comment? Are you saying all other Le Mans winning cars are purely road cars? Are you also saying that all the analogue cars of that era had no issues? It's a nightmare to drive purely because it has no driver aids. It's pure and raw, exactly what is was designed to be.

    One of the most elegant machines ever made. These modern "Lambos" and "exotic" sports cars dont even compare. The design is by far my favorite. Every since i was a kid and i played it on need for speed, this was the car of my dreams. of course my prioties have changed and i could give a shit about having an awesome car, but its still nice to get a look at this car, and really see the 90s beauty of this machine. It hit over 200 without any pussy turbo chargers or superchargers. Just raw naturally aspirated V12 power. It really is the best car ever made

    Or, 3 kilos of gold driving around in the world somewhere. Or..
    As of April 20th 2019, £31,092 of gold sitting around in a bunch of sports cars somewhere on the planet.
    So I could make some serious money, by buying 128 McLaren F1s, scrape off all the gold and sell it!!
