1992 McLaren F1: The F1 is a passenger car from McLaren, with rear wheel drive, a mid mounted engine and a Peter Stevens-designed 2 door coupé body style. The McLaren F1 is that rare supercar that knows no critic. In the pictures you see a special edition, the McLaren F1 LM (LM for Le Mans).
Months of modeling and wind-tunnel testing were employed to optimize the flow of air around and underneath the vehicle, resulting in an incredible drag coefficient of 0.32, making the F1 among one of the most aerodynamically efficient sports cars ever built. It's powered courtesy of a dry sumped naturally aspirated engine of 6.1 litre capacity. So seldom achieved, perfection in design almost always commences with a singular vision, and the F1’s vision belonged to Gordon Murray, the former Brabham Formula 1 designer poached by McLaren in 1987.
This unit features double overhead camshaft valve gear, a 60 degree V 12 cylinder layout, and 4 valves per cylinder.
The F1 was the first road car to feature a complete carbon-fiber chassis, a revolutionary design choice at the time.
