  • Teaser for McLaren Speedtail debuting October 26

    McLaren on Friday gave us the most revealing look yet at its upcoming successor to the legendary F1 in the form of a teaser shot posted on social media. The new car is called the Speedtail, and it is confirmed for a reveal on October 26. The car, which has being doing the rounds under the code name BP23, will be McLaren's fastest, most powerful road car to date. In other words, the Speedtail will be faster than the original F1, which set a world record in the 1990s with its 243 mph top speed, and it will also come with more than the 903 horsepower of the P1 hypercar. McLaren says to expect a...

    You missed your chance to buy the McLaren F1 when it was originally sold in the 1990s.

  • North American McLaren F1 Service Center in Pennsylvania

    With just 106 examples in existence, we can understand why it’s taken McLaren more than two decades to open up its first dedicated F1 service center in the United States. It means local F1 owners, of which there are believed to be 20 individuals, will no longer have to ship their cars to the United Kingdom to have major work done. Considering how much the cars have been changing hands for recently, we’re sure local F1 owners will appreciate their cars staying closer to home. The F1 service center is situated at an undisclosed location near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and is the...

  • McLaren F1 sold for $15.6 million

    When we caught wind of the first U.S. street-legal McLaren F1 for sale, we said there wouldn't be enough time for all of us to collectively scrape our change together. Since the auction has concluded, that statement rings truer than we first imagined. Why? Because this special McLaren F1 has become the most expensive example ever sold with a final price of $15.62 million. The sum hurdles the previous record of $13.75 million for a 1998 McLaren F1 that had received LM specifications. That car sold in 2015 during Monterey Car Week. The sale of McLaren F1 chassis 044 is a big deal since it's...

    The origin story of the McLaren F1

    Back in the late 1990s, the McLaren F1 arrived to set the world on fire. It blasted well past the 200-mph mark into unknown territory when it set a production car top-speed record. That figure, which has of course since been beaten, was an impossible 240.1 mph. You know that number well, but do you...

    The 1990s birthed some pretty spectacular cars. It was a unique time, too. Hybrid powertrains were still the thing of econo cars like the Prius, which meant big power numbers came exclusively from large-displacement engines or lots of forced induction. The McLaren F1 employed the former—a...
