The McLaren F1 is a supercar engineered and produced by Gordon Murray under McLaren Cars, a subsidiary of the British McLaren Group that, among others, owns the McLaren Mercedes Formula One team. The car features a 6.1-litre 60° V12 BMW V12 engine and it was conceived as an exercise in creating what its designers hoped would be considered the ultimate road car. Only 100 cars were manufactured, 65 of those were street versions, 5 were LMs, 3 were GTs and the rest were GTR racing models. Production began in 1992 and ended in 1998.
The McLaren F1 was the fastest production car ever built (having achieved a top speed of 240.14 mph, 386.5 km/h) until surpassed in 2005 by the Koenigsegg CCR, and then the Bugatti Veyron a few months later.
The car remains as one of the most popular modern supercars, and is quickly securing a spot among the most famous cars ever made.
Chief engineer Gordon Murray's design concept was a common one among designers of high-performance cars: low weight and high power. This was achieved through use of high-tech and expensive materials like carbon fiber, titanium, gold and magnesium. The F1 was the first production car to use a carbon-fiber monocoque chassis.
The idea was first conceived when Murray was waiting for a flight home back from that fateful Italian Grand Prix in 1988, Murray drew a sketch of a three seater supercar and proposed it to Ron Dennis. Later, a pair of Ultima MK3 kit cars, chassis numbers 12 and 13, the last two MK3s, were used as "mules" to test various components and concepts before the first cars were built. Number 12 was used to test the gearbox with a 7.4 litre Chevrolet V8 to mimic the torque of the BMW V12, plus various other components like the seats and the brakes. Number 13 was the test of the V12, plus exhaust and cooling system. When McLaren was done with the cars they destroyed both of them to keep away the specialist magazines and because they did not want the car to be associated with "kit cars".
The car was first unveiled at a launch show in May 1992 in Monte Carlo, the original prototype (XP1) remained the same as the production version except the wing mirror which was mounted at the top sill of the door which was deemed not road legal as there were no indicators at the front, McLaren was forced to make changes on the car as a result (some cars, including Ralph Lauren's were sent back to McLaren and fitted with the prototype mirrors). The original wing mirrors also incorporated a pair of indicators which car manufacturers as well as an aftermarket company would adopt several years later. The car's safety levels were first proved when during a testing in Namibia in April 1993, a test driver wearing just shorts and t-shirt hit a rock and rolled the first prototype car several times. The driver managed to escape unscathed. Later in the year, the second prototype (XP2) was especially built for crashtesting and passed with the front wheel arch untouched.
They insisted that the engine for this car be normally-aspirated to increase reliability and driver control. Turbochargers and superchargers increase power but they increase complexity and can decrease reliability as well as the ability of the driver to maintain maximum control of the engine. BMW's motorsport division BMW M custom-built a 6.1 L (6064 cc) 60-degree V12 based on BMW's M70/S70 BMW S70/2 engine with aluminum alloy block and head, 86 mm x 87 mm bore/stroke, quad overhead camshafts for maximum flexibility of control over the four valves/cylinder and chain drive for the camshafts for maximum reliability. At 266 kg, the resulting engine was slightly heavier than Murray's original maximum specification weight of 250 kg but also considerably more powerful than he had specified.
The carbon fiber body panels and monocoque required significant heat insulation in the engine compartment and so Murray's solution was to coat the engine bay with the most efficient heat-reflector: gold foil. Approximately 25 g (0.8 ounce) of gold was used in each car.
The road version used a compression ratio of 11:1 to produce 627 horsepower at 7400 rpm - considerably more than Murray's specification of 550 horsepower. Torque output 480 ft·lbf (651 N·m) at 5600 rpm. Other, more highly tuned, incarnations of the F1 produced up to 680 hp. The engine has a redline and rev limiter at 7500 rpm.
There is some disagreement on the topic of power output. Most sources, including McLaren themselves, report output at "627 horsepower". However, it is unclear whether this is metric horsepower (often represented as "PS" from the German Pferdestärke) or imperial horsepower. Since the McLaren's engine was built by BMW, either unit could have been used - European carmakers tend to measure output in metric horsepower while their British counterparts tend to use Imperial horsepower. Therefore, the German company BMW may have used either measurement for an engine to be delivered to British company McLaren. The kilowatt (kW) is sometimes used as a reference, as it is unambiguous, but in the case of the McLaren, output in kilowatts has been given as both 461 kW (equivalent to 627 PS or 618 hp) and 468 kW (equivalent to 636 PS or 627 hp) - thus the various quotes of horsepower output given as 609, 618, 627 or 636 horsepower.
The car may have been relatively small, but its performance was not. With a 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) time of 3.4 seconds and an official top speed of 240.14 mph (386.4 km/h), although with the rev limiter removed, the F1 remains one of the fastest "production" cars ever made, unsurpassed until the Koenigsegg CCR and Bugatti Veyron were introduced.
While most car manufacturers rate their cars in terms of raw engine power, in terms of overall performance (acceleration, braking, grip and handling) a car's weight is a more important factor. The power:weight ratio is a better way to quantify performance than the power of the engine. By this measure, the F1 was, and still is, one of the most powerful production cars ever made. The F1 achieves 550 hp/ton, or just 4 lb/hp, while the much more recent Ferrari Enzo (even with its significantly higher raw output) lags behind the F1 at 481.75 hp/ton (4.6 lb/hp) due to its greater weight. The car is only significantly outgunned by the highly specialized Caparo T1 (designed by former members of the McLaren team), which delivers 1000 hp/ton.
The Mclaren F1 has a top speed of 240 mph, restricted by the rev limiter at 7500 rpm. The true top speed of the Mclaren F1 was reached on the 31st of March, 1998 by the five-year-old XP5 prototype. Andy Wallace piloted it down the 9 km straight at Volkswagen's Ehra-Lessien test track in Wolfsburg, Germany, setting a new world record of 391.1 km/h (240.1 mph) at 7800 rpm. As Mario Andretti noted in a comparison test, the F1 is fully capable of pulling a seventh gear, thus with a higher gear ratio or a seventh gear the Mclaren F1 would probably be able to reach an even greater top speed (something which can also be observed by noticing that the top speed was reached at 7800 RPM while the peak power is reached at 7400 RPM).
Record claims Edit
The title of "world's fastest production road car" is constantly in contention, especially because the term "production car" is not always well defined by the media. Critics of the F1 will point to the relatively tiny number of cars produced and the extremely high price and contend that a car available to so few is hardly a "production car".
Callaway's Sledgehammer Corvette, the road going version of the Dauer-Porsche 962 (winner of the 1994 24 Hours of Le Mans as a GT) and most recently a version of the 911 Turbo produced by German tuner RUF have all proven in testing that they're capable of top speeds matching or in excess of 240 mph, although none of them are considered production cars, and hence cannot displace the McLaren's record. More recently, the Koenigsegg CCR recorded a speed of 388 km/h (242 mph), a record which has in turn been broken by the Bugatti Veyron, with a top speed of 407 km/h (253 mph). Both of these are considered to be production cars, and have therefore each beaten the McLaren's record.
As a sidenote, the 962, Veyron, Ariel Atom, Koenigsegg CCX, the turbocharged version of Saleen's S7 and RUF's Rt-12 can hit 60 miles per hour in 3.2 seconds or less, meaning that even while certain cars can't break the McLaren's top speed, they are capable of matching or beating its 0-60 time.
In response to this, however, designer Gordon Murray has repeatedly stated, usually in his column in Evo Magazine, that the F1 was never meant to break records, but rather perform as the ultimate driver's car. The Autocar magazine also stated in their review (Autocar is the only car magazine, other than Road & Track 12/97, to have done an official road test/review on the McLaren F1) that the McLaren F1 will remain the best supercar ever produced, which helps reinforce what Gordon Murray had said. Further evidence of it being the ultimate driver's car is its light weight. It weighs only 1138kg while the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 weighs in at 1888kg. Gordon Murray's target for the McLaren F1 was a curbweight of 1000kg, but ended up being 1138kg. It remains one of the lightest supercars ever built.
The basic McLaren F1, of which 64 were originally sold, saw several different modifications over its production span which were badged as different models. Of the road versions, 21 are reportedly in the United States. One of the completed street cars remained in McLaren's London showroom for a decade before being offered for sale as new in 2004. This vehicle became the 65th McLaren F1 sold. The showroom, which was on London's luxurious Park Lane, has since closed. The company maintains a database to match up prospective sellers and buyers of the cars.
Prior to the sale of the first McLaren F1s, five prototypes were built, all carrying the numbers XP1 through XP5. These cars carried minor subtle differences between each other as well as between the production road cars. XP1 was the first publicly unveiled car, and later destroyed in the accident in Namibia. XP2 was used for crash testing and also destroyed. Neither were ever painted. XP3, XP4 and XP5 were all publicity cars developed and owned by McLaren, used for publicity shots and tested by reporters. All were painted a different color, and each was able to be distinguished by their chassis code painted on the side locker panel. XP4 was seen by many viewers of Top Gear when reviewed by Tiff Needell in the mid 1990s, while XP5 went on to be used in McLaren's famous top speed run.
McLaren's super light-weight carbon fibre chassis was revolutionary when it was new. It inspires the newer generation supercars to use excessive carbon fibre materials. It uses gold engine bay to insulate the heat made by the engine. It has 3 seats where the driver sits in the middle, surrounded by seat on both sides. the BMW engine produce a sound that is offered regarded as being unusual and unique. It is also the fastest, naturally aspirated production car in the world, while the other faster cars are using force induction.
F1 GTR '95Edit
Built at the request of race teams, such as those owned by Ray Bellm and Thomas Bscher, in order to compete in the BPR Global GT Endurance series, the McLaren F1 GTR was a custom built race car which introduced a modified engine management system that increased power output — however, air-restrictors mandated by racing regulations reduced the power back to 600 hp (447 kW). The cars extensive modifications included changes to body panels, suspension, aerodynamics and the interior. The F1 GTR would go on to take its greatest achievement with 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 13th places in the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans, beating out custom built prototype sports cars.
In total, nine F1 GTRs would be built for 1995.
In honor of Mclaren's achievements at Le Mans, they announced the building of the McLaren F1 LM (LM for Le Mans). Since five F1 GTRs had finished Le Mans, five F1 LMs would be built. The weight was reduced by approximately 60 kg (132 lb) over that of the road car through the removal of various pieces of trim and use of optional equipment. The car also had a different transaxle, various aerodynamic modifications (including a rear spoiler) and specially-designed 18 inch (457 mm) wheels. The LM also used the GTR's upgraded engine without race-mandated restrictors to produce 691 PS (680 hp/508 kW). Three of the five LMs that were made are easily recognized by their colour as they were painted "Papaya Orange" as a tribute to the memory of Bruce McLaren, who had used the same colour for all his contemporary Formula One and Can Am cars. LM1 and LM4, which were built for the Sultan of Brunei, have a black paintjob with blue yellow and gray stripes. There are no known pictures of these vehicles, though there is one illustration drawn by a designer who has seen the vehicles in person.
An F1 LM was used by CAR Magazine when they broke the world record for 0-100 mph, achieving 5.9 seconds total time. The car also reached a record by doing the 0-100-0 mph in 11.5 seconds being driven by racing driver Andy Wallace. This record has since been broken by the Ultima GTR. The top speed of the LM is not as high as that of the F1 roadcar, mainly due to the drag created by the rear wing, shorter gear ratios and a more blunt front end borrowed from the F1 GTR which is meant to create more downforce. The top speed of the LM is quoted at 225 mph by McLaren Cars Ltd, but this has not been proven nor tested.
Although only five F1 LMs were sold, a sixth chassis exists in the form of XPLM, the prototype for modifications to the existing F1 to form the new F1 LM. This car is also painted Papaya Orange, and is retained by McLaren.
F1 GTR '96Edit
To follow up on the success of the F1 GTR into 1996, McLaren further developed the '95 model, leading to a size increase but weight decrease. Nine more F1 GTRs were built to 1996 spec, while some 1995 cars were still campaigned by privateers. F1 GTR '96 chassis #14R is notable as being the only non-Japanese car to win a race in the All-Japan Grand Touring Car Championship (JGTC). The car was driven by David Brabham and John Nielsen.
The final incarnation of the roadcar, the F1 GT was meant as a homologation special. With increased competition from homologated supercars from Porsche and Mercedes-Benz, McLaren required extensive modification to the F1 GTR in order to be competitive. These modifications were so vast that McLaren would be required to build a production car in order to legally base the new race cars on. Thus was born the F1 GT.
The F1 GT featured the same extended rear bodywork for increased downforce, yet lacked the rear wing that had been seen on the F1 LM. The downforce generated by the long tail was found to be sufficient to not require a wing. The front end was also similar to the racing car. The wheel fenders were also widened to fit larger wheels. The interior was redesigned, and a racing steering wheel was included.
The F1 GTs were developed from unfinished standard F1 chassis. The prototype, XPGT, was F1 chassis #056, and is still kept by McLaren. The two customer F1 GTs were F1 chassis #054 and #058. McLaren technically only needed to build one, but demand from customers drove McLaren to build the two production versions.
F1 GTR '97Edit
With the F1 GT homologated, McLaren could now develop the F1 GTR for the 1997 season. Weight was further reduced and a sequential transaxle was added. The engine was slightly destroked to 6.0L instead of the previous 6.1L. Due to the heavily modified bodywork, the F1 GTR '97 is often referred to as the "Longtail." A total of 10 F1 GTR '97s were built.
Many F1 GTRs, after it was retired from racing, were converted to street use. By adding mufflers, passenger seat upholstery, adjusting the suspension for more ground clearance for public streets, and removing the air restrictors, they made quite a formidable sports car. An F1 GTR Longtail equipped like this can be described as the ultimate F1, and quite possibly the ultimate road-going supercar.
McLaren F1 #73 is considered to be the best McLaren F1 - although it started out as a standard F1. The owner went to McLaren and requested for it to be upgraded and it began with minor modifications such as a GTR inspired High Downforce Kit and a 4mm Gurney Flap.
McLaren later installed a larger radiator and a sports exhaust system, followed by some exclusive forged multi-spoke wheels (no other car in the world has these)with Michelin tyres.
Then McLaren decided to do a major upgrade - they fitted this car with an LM engine (one of only two normal F1's to have one fitted) Producing 691 bhp at 7,500RPM
Finally the car was resprayed in a one of Dark tangerine metallic colour. The interior was then retrimmed to GT specification, Armourfend was applied to protect any areas that could suffer from stonechips. The last modifications were an uprated aircon system, a Phillips Sat-Nav, a leather trimmed 14" steering wheel and tinted side windows.
To finish of this one off McLaren (which is often referred to as not only the ultimate F1 - The ultimate supercar ever) it was handsigned by Gordon Murray himself in permanent silver marker next to the gear stick.
In total, McLaren built the following amount of F1s and variants:
- 65 F1s (plus 5 prototypes)
- 5 F1 LMs (plus 1 prototype)
- 2 F1 GTs (plus 1 prototype)
- 9 F1 GTR '95s
- 9 F1 GTR '96s
- 10 F1 GTR '97s
Total production is thus 72 road legal F1s, 28 racing cars, and 7 prototypes.

The cost Edit
Though not officially announced, the price of the McLaren F1 road cars has generally been pegged at $1 million. Premiums of more than $100,000 over sticker price were reportedly charged, thus making the average prices of a Mclaren F1 around $1,250,000. Used McLaren F1s are seldom publicly available. In December 2005, however, a yellow 1994 model was advertised by Silicon Valley Auto Group in Los Gatos, California, on the eBay auction site. Bidding escalated to $1,750,000 before the auction ended; the car did not sell as the auction listing noted: "Reserve Not Met". It was re-listed, but the seller ended the auction early, claiming an error in the listing - a common technique when an item is sold off-auction instead.
Some F1 LMs have been rumoured to have been sold for over 1.5 million dollars.

F1 rumors Edit
- Bill Gates never owned an F1
- The McLaren that went 240mph was a prototype with a less powerful engine than the final production cars, meaning the real top speed of the production car is likely to exceed 240mph - While XP5 is a prototype, it was "Road Car Spec" when it did the top speed run. The only changes to the car were that the underbody was polished, the rev limiter raised/removed, the headlights taped over, and the license plate replaced with a stick on item. All modifications were "road legal" and the car had no performance enhancing modifications.
Certain die-cast scale models of the F1 are now extremely desirable among collectors. Most of these models are now out of production. Manufacturers of McLaren F1 models include UT Models, Maisto, Minichamps/Paul's Model Art, Guiloy and Autobarn. Models have been produced in 1:64, 1:43, 1:24, 1:18 and 1:12. Among the most desirable of these models are the Minichamps 1:43 McLaren F1 GTR West Promotion model (which can sell for over $1,000 at auction) and the UT Models 1:18 silver & dark blue McLaren F1 LMs (which each can sell for over $400 at auction).
- During its pre-production stage, McLaren commissioned Kenwood to create a lightweight car audio system for the car; Kenwood, between 1992 and 1998 used the F1 to promote its products in print advertisements and brochure covers.
- The F1 held the title for "Fastest Production Car Till Date" for a span of 12 years, since its initial production in 1993. The longest for any street legal or production car in the history of automobiles.
