The vehicle revealed right here is the standard street-likely variation, but McLaren made supplemental variants at the time it determined to get the F1 racing (a thing designer Gordon Murray by no means supposed). The racing version that received Le Mans was the GTR, and it was adopted by a commemorative LM road automobile, then the GTR Longtail racer, which was created to hold the F1 aggressive from newer machinery.
The F1 stays so legendary that both equally McLaren and Murray have created successors. McLaren’s work is the Speedtail, which keeps the F1’s central driving posture, but packs a 1,055-horsepower hybrid powertrain, and aims to be more of a grand tourer than its predecessor.
