    McLaren F1 LM & other supercars featured at the London Motorshow

    McLAREN F1 AT THE BRITISH INTERNATIONAL MOTOR SHOW
    17 July 2006

    The stunning McLaren F1 LM, resplendent in its McLaren Orange livery, will be on display in the Super Car Paddock at the British International Motor Show from the 20th-30th of July. Taking place at the ExCel London exhibition centre, the British International Motor Show is the ultimate day out for anyone passionate about road cars. McLaren is pleased to support the British Motor Show with the presence of a McLaren F1 LM.

    The display of the McLaren F1 LM is a unique opportunity to view the ultimate and most exclusive version of the McLaren F1. With 680 bhp and weighing some 60kg less than the F1 road car, the F1 LM is the fastest accelerating F1 of all.

    The McLaren F1 LM was produced to commemorate McLaren's extraordinary feat of winning the Le Mans 24 Heure endurance race at the first attempt in 1995. A road going version of the 1995 F1 GTR, with the minimum modifications to make it usable on the road, only five LM's exist in the world - one for every F1 GTR which finished the race.

    The LM runs the most powerful engine of any F1, road or race, by using an 1995 GTR engine without the air restrictors. It also features the race car aerodynamics, gearbox and 18" inch wheels. Inside the LM, the driver sits in an all carbon fibre race seat, and the passenger seats are moulded into the moncoque. With minimal trim, the interior carbon is beautifully finished in high gloss lacquer.

    Looks like it's worth a visit just for the Caparo T1 and the F1LM. Too bad I'm nowhere near that part of the planet


    And that MBR is hideous.

    So, Peleton, this is the XP model right?

    I wish I could go. McLaren's facility told me they wouldn't be holding anything open to the public until the fall, and this would be my only chance to catch it.

    Yes - should be XP1LM on display. There aren't many chances to see an LM where you actually get advanced notice and this should not be missed if you can make it.

    I'll have to talk a relative in the UK to go. The car (nor the 1 here) just doesn't seem to go public too much.

    VAG is not exhibiting, so there will be no Bugattis.
    Thanks for all the fish

    The talk is that Jack Barclay might loan one for the show.

    went today, saw this little F1 LM bearing it face and almost wet myself! here are some pics (well, everyone crouded round so i got 1 of the car, 1 of the ear defenders it comnes with!)

    Just a shame about the lack of the VAG group, seemed stupid seeing as they are actually trying to sell cars!

    wow... thanks for the news and the nice pics. i am a huge McLaren fan but i am now where near london.

    its always nice to see new pics of these cars... and these are nice pics.

    no matter how old these cars get, they are very nice looking cars! and people will always stop what they are doing to get a peek of one.

    thanks.

    You don't want a SEAT or Bentley?

    VAG aren't trying to sell cars, they are selling cars.
