The 1993 McLaren F1 is McLaren's first road-going production vehicle and famous for reaching a speed record for production cars in 1998, with 240 mph (386 km/h), surpassing the old record of 217 mph (349 km/h) set by the RUF CTR2 in 1995.

The McLaren F1 was succeeded by the McLaren P1 hypercar in 2013.

Description Edit

The engine compartment is lined with gold. The driver’s seat is located in the center of the car. More than twenty years after it was first introduced, it’s still the fastest naturally aspirated car in the world. That’s why when most people are asked to name the greatest road car ever built, the McLaren F1 is what instantly springs to mind. It should; the F1 was designed and built to be just that, with no expense spared and no compromises made. The brainchild of Gordon Murray, a renowned designer of innovative racecars, the McLaren F1 defied conventional thinking by pioneering such technologies as a full carbon fiber monocoque chassis weighing just 220 lbs., a first for a road car. Backed up by a highly modified BMW V12 making 627 horsepower, the F1 is as fast as it was expensive—nearly a million dollars when new. While being fast would have been enough to drop jaws, the F1 is also an eminently drivable car—so much so that the F1, which was never intended to race at all, was modified slightly and went on to win the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans race outright. Only 64 were made, so don’t expect to see one in your nearest used car lot.


Designed by Gordon Murray and Peter Stevens, the McLaren F1 features a BMW-sourced 6.1L (6,064 cc) naturally aspirated V12, codenamed S70/2. It produces 627 hp (636 PS; 468 kW) and 480 ft·lb (651 Nm) of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission. The McLaren F1 was also the first production road-going car to use a complete carbon fibre reinforced polymer (CFRP) monocoque chassis structure. The McLaren F1 is also unique in that it features a central driving position: the driver is in the center, ahead of the fuel tank and engine, with the two passengers slightly behind and on each side.

The McLaren F1 can reach 60 mph in 3.2 seconds, 120 mph in 9.2 seconds, 180 mph in 20.3 seconds, and a top speed of 231 mph (372 km/h) with the rev limiter on. With the rev limiter disabled, the top speed is raised to 240 mph (386 km/h).

Driving Characteristics Edit

The McLaren F1 is among one of the best non-pre-tuned performing cars from the 1990s, capable of doing 0-60 mph in 3.4 seconds, very fast for a car from the late 20th century. The F1 also stands as the fastest non-hybrid, naturally aspirated car in the series, hitting up to 243 mph (391 km/h). Due to the lack of interior accessories and the use of a carbon fiber reinforced polymer monocoque chassis structure, the F1 is lightweight, a trait common in all McLaren cars that helps facilitate smooth cornering. The active rear wing acts to create downforce to allow for smooth cornering and fast braking.

Trivia Edit

  • The McLaren F1 was also produced as the F1 GTR racing variant, and its respective homologation special, the F1 GT. Both variants had already appeared in earlier Forza titles, while the latter car still appears in current Forza titles.
