1998 Mclaren F1

1998 Mclaren F1 (Cars)

The McLaren F1 is a sports car designed and manufactured by Gordon Murray and McLaren Automotive. On Mar. 31, 1998 (20 years ago), it set the record for the fastest production car in the world, 240 mph (391 km/h). As of Apr. 2009 (9 years ago), the F1 is succeeded by three faster cars in sheer top speed, but is still the fastest naturally aspirated production car.

The car features numerous proprietary designs and technologies. It is lighter and has a more streamlined structure than even most of its modern rivals and competitors despite having one seat more than most similar sports cars, with the driver's seat located in the middle. It features a powerful engine and is somewhat track oriented, but not to the degree that it compromises everyday usability and comfort. It was conceived as an exercise in creating what its designers hoped would be considered the ultimate road car. Despite not having been designed as a track machine, a modified race car edition of the vehicle won several races, including the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1995 (23 years ago), where it faced purpose-built prototype race cars. Production began in 1992 (26 years ago) and ended in 1998 (20 years ago). In all, 106 cars were manufactured, with some variations in the design.

In 1994 (24 years ago), AutoCar stated in a road test regarding the F1, "The McLaren F1 is the finest driving machine yet built for the public road." and that "The F1 will be remembered as one of the great events in the history of the car, and it may possibly be the fastest production road car the world will ever see.".
