1997 McLaren F1 GT

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.
