Here's Why the McLaren F1 Is the Greatest Car Ever Made

  • Published on Mar 19, 2019
    The McLaren F1 is one of the most famous cars in history -- and possibly the very best car in history. Today I'm reviewing the McLaren F1, and I'm taking you on a full tour of the McLaren F1 -- then I'm getting the McLaren F1 out on the road with Jay Leno.

      Umm the Carrera GT (blesses be it’s name) is the greatest car of all time, you don’t have to lie to impress Leno

    It wasn't this car that won LeMans it was a purpose-built McLaren F1 GTR they want LeMans two completely different cars. Also the F1 had issues the transmission being one of them handling issues being the other the car was and is a nightmare to drive.

    Actually, it is "a lot of cars", depends on which car you gonna buy with 20 million $

    Doug is the type of guy to buy Mclaren f1 specific valve stem caps and not even own a Mclaren f1.

    One of the most elegant machines ever made. These modern "Lambos" and "exotic" sports cars dont even compare. The design is by far my favorite. Every since i was a kid and i played it on need for speed, this was the car of my dreams. of course my prioties have changed and i could give a shit about having an awesome car, but its still nice to get a look at this car, and really see the 90s beauty of this machine. It hit over 200 without any pussy turbo chargers or superchargers. Just raw naturally aspirated V12 power. It really is the best car ever made

    So they saved 6 whole ounces by using a specially light 10 CD changer?! How about just not having one? The glorious sound of that engine is all I need to hear. 6 ounces....smh

    If McLaren is saving ounces in weights why would you add an extra seat to add lbs due to an extra passenger?

    So that's 0.8 oz of gold per McLaren F1..
    Or, 3 kilos of gold driving around in the world somewhere. Or..
    As of April 20th 2019, £31,092 of gold sitting around in a bunch of sports cars somewhere on the planet.
    So I could make some serious money, by buying 128 McLaren F1s, scrape off all the gold and sell it!!
    Oh, wait..

    FYI, you misread the "check oil immediately after running engine" part. You weren't supposed to check the oil every time, even the manual says to check only weekly. That was so the oil wouldn't cool down and its density and volume wouldn't change.

    I have a feeling you didn't get to drive it not necessarily because Jay didn't want you to but more because you really couldn't because it was a custom fit for jay and you probably wouldn't have been able to sit in the driver's seat comfortably in any way shape or form

    Nice review of a car. I especially liked the part when you drove it in your dreams. That was great hearing about the power band and the transmission. Maybe next time you could give us an in depth review of how you liked the headlights turning on and off. Or, I could go along for a ride while Sam Maloof drives it in an ad.
