McLaren's founder, Bruce McLaren, always wanted to produce a road car that would rival the best in the world. In 1969, he drew up plans to produce road-going cars that were essentially slightly modified Can-Am race machines. These were called the M6GT and M12GT. However, they never amounted to much... ...with only a few prototypes created. His dream was finally realized in the 1990s with perhaps the greatest sports car of all time. Designed by Gordon Murray and equipped with the company's racing know-how, the McLaren F1 road car was born. The car shown here is the McLaren F1 GTR, a race version of the legendary road car. The stock F1 was so powerful that for Le Mans, the engine had to be detuned from 618 HP to 592 HP to comply with regulations. The McLaren F1 powerplant was built by BMW... ...which allowed the F1 GTR to also be raced by BMW's works teams. It has become one of the most popular of the F1 collection of BMW works racers.
