Golden super car McLaren F1

McLaren F1 – a two-door coupe with a rear wheel drive, was not only the fastest car, it was also the innovative car thanking its talented founder Gordon Murray. McLaren F1 was released within 1992 for 1998. In total 106 cars have been released, 65 from them intended for public roads (F1), five was prototypes of Le Mans (LM), three exclusive (GT), 5 – XP, 28 racing versions (GTR) and 1 — XP LM.

Murray there was not a beginner for admirers of motor racing. Before it started creation McLaren F1, it already was the well-known developer of race cars of Formuly-1. In its coin box were Brabham BT46, Brabham BT55, and most successful of them: McLaren MP4-4, allowed Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost to win 15 of 16 races. The reason has not been clamped by the traditional approach to creation of cars, and he thought up three-local super cars in which the driver sat in the center, and two passenger armchairs settled down behind. It gave a number of advantages: the driver had a good review, the fuel tank thanks to it managed to be displaced a little forward for reception of optimum balance. But this decision had also lacks: difficult access to a driver’s armchair that at the expense of type doors “the side panel of the butterfly” partially dared.


Probably, McLaren F1 was not so it is beautiful, as Ferrari F50, but last suffered “technical defeat”, without acting on one race because even version F50 GT conceded McLaren F1 on technical characteristics. Use of a hydrocarbon fiber not only for a body, but also for the car chassis was one more innovation in McLaren F1. Yes, it was unprofitable, but it of that need a lot of cash. Weight McLaren F1 decreased also at the expense of cross-section suspension arms from an aluminum alloy and brakes Brembo with calipers from aluminum. Its 17-inch wheels were from magnesium and weight, thus, has been finished to 1138 kg., and it at outline dimensions, mm.: length – 4 287, width – 1 820, height – 1 140, a wheelbase – 2 718. For the road car at McLaren F1 there was very small ground clearance (a road gleam) – only 120 mm. But it is necessary to pay for all. On the dynamic characteristics McLaren F1 did not leave any chance to competitors on a victory. This car is in the list of top fastest cars and is placed really high.

By working out McLaren F1 even the attention has been paid to trivial things. For example, for protection carbon bodies from heat the motor compartment together with a cover has been covered by a film from pure gold – the best deflector of infra-red radiation. Some details were from the titan, sitting – from the most thin carbon. They were not regulated, and were made individually under everyone. And at all thus, Gordon Murray insisted that McLaren F1 – the practical expensive car, therefore it did not offer the air conditioner, electric window regulators and audio system Kenwood developed specially for McLaren F1.
