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


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.

    I would be very suprised if McLaren haven't made virtual emulators of those computers by now. It's easily done, I'm sure they just dont want people to find out any garage 'could' service them with an emulator. I regularly make my laptop think its a MS Dos PC from the 80's or a windows 95/98 system for running old software. If McLaren own the computers, they can copy them & emulate them on a modern system.

    jay and doug are the king and queen of pretentiousness. 15 million reasons why it is the worst car ever made. it would cost you 15 million to get in one. my $6000 2008 335xi is a better car than the mc pos. it is winter here. and i would race the mcdungheap from wasilla to fairbanks, 350 miles, and not just win but the f1 would not even make the trip. i could do it with 4 family members with me. i could sell some bitcoin and buy an f1 but, no, it's a pos.

    You are one lucky man!! Just think you're one of the few people that's driven in the McLaren F1. I would have died and gone to heaven. Some might be put off by its minimalist design. I personally like it and furthermore. True sports cars weren't meant to be luxury vehicles. They were meant to be experienced as the ultimate road vehicles. Personally I'm just drooling right now. Just thinking what it must be like sitting in this beast. :b

    A did you know, in 93 the MKIV Supra was first produced and designed for 800hp. Was so wild it wasn't allowed to be produced. The engine is so strong can see them doing 6 second passes on quarter mile using a standard stick shift gearbox and engine block. All that gold and carbon fibre and a $45,000 Toyota could of decimated it if Toyota was allowed to make it.
