You might be the type of person that loves spending a few hours on a weekend washing your pride and joy.
You've got your two or three buckets. There's your favorite wash rags all set out. You have some cleaning products you prefer at your side. Those four hours you're about to spend will put you in the zen zone. Perhaps then, you might be curious what it takes to detail a car that's a bit more expensive and quite a bit more rare than whatever is on your driveway.
Larry Kosilla is the wonderful mad man behind Ammo NYC. It's a car cleaning company that takes the entire process to an obscene level. Larry loves making cars as clean as possible, and he's been great at showing his process through a series of videos on YouTube and also on a podcast. He also has a line of great car cleaning products for the equally obsessed. Recently, he and a team of other detailers were dispatched to handle a massive job.
The car? A 1997 McLaren F1 GTR Longtail. In fact, this appears to be chassis #28R, which would make it the final F1 GTR ever made. It's finished in its Gulf and Team Davidoff racing livery, and it's both impossibly rare and wildly expensive.
The task at hand? Larry and a crew will disassemble the car by removing some body panels and then set to work on cleaning every nook and cranny of the McLaren. The car was due to appear on the lawn at August's 2016 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, and it needed to be absolutely spotless. So this is what 138 man hours of detailing on an ultra-exotic race car looks like, and the end result is pretty wonderful.
