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.

To be honest, I wasn't really fond of Leno before but hearing that kid calling him an uncle story at 35:58 made me like the guy. He's just having fun.
I was just watching... I think your Grand National video and though... man... Doug and Jay should do a video together... and then I watched this. Amazing.

The total production was 106 cars, 6 - Prototypes, 28 - Racecars, so only 72 made it ever on the streets.

Interior trim looked surprisingly nice!

Lol, no friggin' way. It looks like some insect with the expression a parasite's coming out of it's ass. The Ferrari 458 and McLaren 720S (just to prove I don't bias brands) look timeless and light years ahead of this childish nonsense. Otherwise, why the hell would McLaren continue new designs if they thought this was 'Perfection'? Sorry to burst bubbles but nostalgia has it's limits

Jay Leno never misses his childhood amazement and curiosity, he's always appreciative of the things he's able to do with his work. He does get to live the car enthusiast's dream.

I feel like you cheated on the value score just to make this the best rated car. Because you always mention that the actual price matters too and not just how much a car depreciates or appreciates.

I attended the press introduction of the McLaren F1 road car at the Monaco Sporting Club. As I was leaving I noticed I was walking behind Denny Hulme, Bruce McLaren’s long-time team-mate, and Tyler Alexander, who worked with Bruce most of his career. They both hated the F1, with Denny’s epic vocabulary on display. I didn’t care for the car, probably for the same reason they disliked it: it wasn’t anything like the M6B GT Bruce had been working on when he was killed. We’ll never know if Bruce would’ve approved or not . . .

My old boss owned a white F1 that was kept parked under a carport in hot desert climate but that’s when they were only $1mill. We also used to go on diving trips with the owner of McLaren . Wish I knew what they would be worth twenty years later and I would’ve offered to take it off his hands.

This is my favorite car on the EA Need for Speed as it is able and extremely capable of beating faster cars due to its weight to power ratio, killer at taking the curves on the game. So I can only imagine what is like in real life...my dream car for sure!

Adam Ball The Southend Guy
You just have to love Jay. What an absolute petrolhead! And you can see how much love and respect he has for the F1, that has little to do with its value I suspect. And I think The McLaren has just made the top of my ultimate car list. Just phenomenal. And THAT noise, OMFG!

A few crazy things about this car: . The tyres are unique to the car ie: you can't buy them off the shelf, they are custom sized (and astronomically expensive). Also they don't 'balance' the tyres like a regular tyres - the tyres have to be purposefully 'warn' into balance - again astronomically expensive. . The fuel tank is a bag (a compromise on the volume available for the fuel). Because the fuel tanks is a special bag, it technically needs to be replace once every 5 years.... you need to take out the entire engine to get to the bag/tank. . Doug spoke about the mirrors coming from a typical VW Corrado, well the rear lights comes from a bus?? . The air conditioner.... it doesn't work. The air flow pipe for the aircon is so narrow and so long, that, well no cold air really makes it through.

Wonder what it cost to insure it to drive on the road?
Mark Plain
Mark Plain 25 days ago
Just realised.... this car is made in the UK, yet they decided to place the gear lever by the right hand, kind of making the car a "left hand drive". . This is important cause Brits tend to believe that the correct 'ergonomic' to driving a car has it that your 'stronger' hand (right hand) is on the steering wheel while your weaker hand (left hand) is on the gear lever.... assuming you are right handed of course. . Now I kind of agree with the Brits in that I find that when I'm running through the gears on a British car, I keep my left hand on the gear lever while changing gears. On an American car I find myself changing gears (with my right hand) then instinctively placing my right hand back on the wheel. Then reach out again to the gear lever (as the revs get high). Meaning that on an American car my reaction time to change gears when I need to, is slower than on a British car. . Considering the McLaren designer knows racing cars better than anyone else.... I'm obviously wrong and left hand drive cars are stupid.... TAKE THAT BRITS!!!... oh here's the best part, the guy who designed the McLaren is not British (double whammy).
