Will the McLaren F1 ever be dethroned? (Read the first $@#*%@ post!) :)

No, I'm not talking about top speed

I'm talking about the benefits of ownership compared to other supercars. Other manufacturers have built machines that can outperform the F1 on the track, and a few can/will acheive a higher top speed, but how would you like to own them? To me, The F1 is the ultimate driver's car. The Enzo is great, and so is the Zonda, and so are a range of others, but there's a few things that they simply cannot top:

3 Seats and the surprisingly huge amount of space provided by the dual side panier lockers. (Oh yeah, and apparently the performance is half-decent as well )

For me, this alone makes the F1 the most desireable car on the road. It truly is one that you could take anywhere (except off-roading) and still find it perfectly useable.

What do you guys think?

The McLaren is about 10 years old, and is still ranked very high up there when it comes to supercars. It's probably THE supercar.

I think it's the greatest machine ever built.

I think a car with it´s handling and power will not be made for some time... even though a Ferrari...
The McLaren F1 is simply beautifull and almost perfect...
A great option to buy, but not here in Brazil...

Even if cars come to beat the Mac on the track, the Mac will always be a very very special car because of its exclusivity, its records and because of the amazing attention to detail and quality of the workmanship.

rs6 its by no means ugly its just that its not that special enough and by the way i am not a fan of their styling either but then again you have to look at the performance but then again they did not use their own engine so ultimately the car is not good at all and its getting old, really really old

before u get all your facts mixed up,

i agree that bmw produced the engine: because maclaren did not have enough resources;

and the brains behind the engine were maclaren's own ppl:

they DESIGENED IT and ask bmw to BUILD IT

therefore it is their engine, although it has bmw written all over it

its not entirely theirs and the base is BMW - they could not even start if they did not have a base. and how much development did they put in not too much i bet because the engine is that damn good and could you please post your threads in a much more calm tone and not like crazy dipsomaniac - THANKS

and a dipsomaniac has got nothing to do with this

i was very very clam when posting the comment

i already said that the engine was not entierly theirs but they DESIGNED and IMPROVED it and bmw simply produced it

simple reason being that maclaren did not have enough resources

The McLaren F1 is a truly great car and I love it but it is just a bit ugly. Sure it is fast, very fast but isn't the Veyron faster.

precisely, if they had produced the engine all by themselves....we would not have had one of the most special cars ever
