The 1997 McLaren F1 GT is the last homologation special version of the McLaren F1 GTR race car. One difference includes the lack of a rear wing, instead replacing it with a long tail. Along with other modifications, the McLaren F1 GT is better aerodynamically than its older brethren.

The McLaren F1 GT debuted in Forza Motorsport 3 and has returned for all subsequent games with the exceptions of Forza Motorsport 5 and Forza Motorsport 6: Apex.

Description Edit

Is the standard McLaren F1 too common for you? The F1 GT may be the answer to your problem, as just three were produced as Le Mans homologation specials. As the briefest glance will tell you, the primary change from regular (“short-tail”) F1 to the GT variant is the long tail and improved aerodynamics. That’s because the F1 was originally intended not to race, but rather to be the ultimate road-going supercar. It accomplished that in spades, but when it was finally decided to race the F1 at Le Mans, testing showed that to achieve the high speeds required and to be competitive, the GT would require the aerodynamic improvements. The Le Mans variant was known as the GTR, and it managed to secure second and third place at the 1997 race, proving that the modification program was largely a success. The road-going version was also a success from an enthusiast’s standpoint—an incredibly rare version of an already superlative car—perhaps the closest a lucky driver can come to taking one of McLaren’s incredible race cars out onto a public road. Or, more appropriately, a track with a straight long enough to explore the F1 GT’s top speed, if you dare.

Driving Characteristics Edit

The McLaren F1 GT is basically a McLaren F1 with better handling and braking. However, the McLaren F1 GT is the slowest McLaren in drag races, losing to the F1 and even the 570S. Despite this, the F1 GT is still a solid performer in many cases.

Trivia Edit

  • The McLaren F1 GT is the most expensive McLaren in the entire Forza series, costing at most 5,200,000 CR.
  • The McLaren F1 GT was absent from Forza Motorsport 5. However, it returned near the end of Forza Horizon 2 as a DLC car and in Forza Motorsport 6 as a VIP-unlockable car. In Forza Horizon 3, it is again purchasable by default.
  • The McLaren F1 GT actually still has the same power output as the regular McLaren F1: 627 HP (468 kW). However, the Forza games erroneously show it as 618 HP (461 kW).
