McLAREN F1 (1993-1997) CAR HISTORY

Car review on McLAREN F1

It's not every designer or engineer who has the chance to build the ultimate car, with absolutely no expense spared. Perhaps Bugatti did it with the extravagant Royale in the 1930s, but few in the industry could argue that Gordon Murray's McLaren Fl was anything but the ultimate road-going car.


A former chief Formula 1 designer at Brabham, then at Woking-based McLaren, Murray had a burning but unfulfilled passion to build a machine that qualified as the fastest, most involving road car yet made — and, of course, the most expensive. Yet it would also have to be a car you could happily drive into town.


Ideas at McLaren began crystallizing during 1988, and in March 1989 Murray announced his plans to the public. Murray was in charge of design and development, while Lotus stylist Peter Stevens would pen the car's shape, and BMW's Motor sport division had agreed to design an all-new V-twelve engine from scratch. Everything revolved around Murray's ideal precepts, such as the innovative three-seater cabin with the driver sitting in the middle ahead of the two passengers.


Another crucial factor was the target weight: an unbelievable 22051b (1000kg) (Ferrari's F40 weighed 27201b (1235kg) and Jaguar's XJ220 weighed 32401b (1470kg)). Every detail was under scrutiny to see if it could be made lighter.


With no less than 627bhp on tap from the 6064cc BMW V-twelve engine, the truly explosive performance which Murray had been aiming for became a reality. Ex-Formula 1 driver Jonathan Palmer flew to the Nardo test track in Italy in August 1993 and, in the searing heat, he drove the Fl at an incredible 231mph (372kph). Tests betrayed more amazing figures: 0-60mpli (0-96kph) in 3.2 seconds, 0-lOOmph (0-161kph) in 6.3 seconds and 30-70mph (48—113kph) in just over 2 seconds. Such incredible performance made the Fl almost invincible on the track: an Fl GTR came first in virtually every GT Endurance race it entered, and the Fl was triumphant at Le Mans in 1995.


Then there was the cost: no less than £635,000 ($1,070,000), reflecting the huge development budget, ultra-high technology and the fact that, initially, each one took 6,000 man-hours to build. Then there were all the little touches that made the Fl so special, like the gold-insulated engine bay, (lay unbelievably complex sound system, total leeway for individual color choice and tailored luggage. If you had car problems, McLaren would jet out a mechanic on the next available flight.


The first customer car was finished on Christmas Eve 1993, and the last one of a total of exactly 100 cars — far short of the initial target of 300 — was completed in 1997. There could hardly be a more exclusive car than this.
