“The F1 was one of a kind.”

With advanced aerodynamics, technology, a 618-HP BMW M-developed V-12 engine, and a true motorsports DNA, the McLaren F1 was the pinnacle of automotive engineering for the road. It was – and still is to this day – a beautiful masterpiece of which few cars have ever come close.

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the F1, McLaren has released footage from the memorable world record-setting 240.14 mph top speed runs along with an interview with its driver, Andy Wallace.
