In-game descriptionEdit

"The final word in sportscars that captures the philosophy of the genius Gordon Murray."



The McLaren F1 production car first made its appearance in 1991 as the king of all super sports exotics. The car was built by Formula 1 constructor McLaren and styled by lead designer Gordon Murray, who was assigned the arduous task of bringing to life company founder Bruce McLaren's dream of building a road-going automobile with the McLaren name.

The F1 sports car had scissor-type doors not unlike those of a Lamborghini Diablo. Its monocoque structure was extremely light, contributing to the car's 1140 kg weight. The car was laden with so many special features that they are too many to list here, but one trait worth noting is the car's passenger seating arrangement. By positioning the driver's seat at the center of the interior and the two passengers on opposing sides behind the driver, an ideal lateral and vertical weight balance was realized. Even the trunk was positioned within the wheelbase to ensure optimal weight distribution. Mounted amidships was BMW's 6.1-liter V-12 that pumped out 618 HP. Although other exotics of he day used forced induction, McLaren opted to keep its powerplant naturally aspirated for better overall response and driving ease.

Upon its release to the public, the McLaren F1 was hailed as the fastest road-going sports car in the world, one that was also quite practical as an everyday driver. Needless to say, many McLaren F1 owners wanted to race the car because of its incredibly high level of performance, prompting the company to produce the F1 GTR, a race version of the road car. The F1 GTR went on to enjoy a successful racing career that included wins in races such as the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
