Car Painting, oil on canvas and limited edition prints of The F1 GTR was a race car based on the F1, built by McLaren and supplied to race teams (never run as a factory team) in 1995. It raced in a number of GT races including the 24 hours of Le Mans, where it won on its debut. To understand what the Longtail was, we have to rewind a little bit to 1993 when McLaren launched its first ever road car — the legendary F1. It was a car envisioned by McLaren, a company that had only built race cars up until that point, to be the greatest car to ever hit the streets. And it sure as hell succeeded.
It got BMW to build it a wild 6.1-litre naturally aspirated V12, ostentatiously lined the engine bay in gold to reflect heat and dropped it in a finely honed chassis.
The bodywork was fully carbonfibre, making it the first ever road car to pull of this (still rather uncommon) stunt, keeping it ultra light. This car was the fastest naturally aspirated production car in the world when it came out, and guess what — it still is. Yep. think about it.
Nearly thirty years on, it still holds that title. The central driving position was a nod at McLaren’s success in Formula One, as was the name.
