Legacy Models: McLaren F1

Power, Pace and Peerless Quality.

The McLaren F1

The McLaren F1 is a true legacy car in McLaren’s supercar history – and it was the world’s first carbon fibre road car.

 

Performance

The McLaren team worked hard to deliver a design where every inch of the McLaren F1 enhanced the model’s performance to deliver the world’s most thrilling car. The 6.1 litre V12 engine delivered an incredible power output of 627bhp. It was the fastest car of its time.

 

Design

A road car F1 was designed and produced by Gordon Murray and Peter Stevens between the years of 1993-1998, with a race car F1 model in production throughout the years of 1995-1998.

The road car was aerodynamically sublime using light but strong carbon fibre at the core of the model to save weight, and incorporating only the best McLaren engineering. Even the toolkit was 50% lighter than the steel kit. Featuring the iconic dihedral doors, the F1 was elegant in style and technology. – with the doors swinging out almost like wings.

 

Technology

The onboard diagnostic computer was developed for the track and continuously monitored the myriad of metrics to identity any faults. Of course, as with most McLaren models, the road car McLaren F1 featured only the most up-to-date technology. This included telematics and an entertainment system located in the centre console.
