The final variant of the McLaren F1 road car, the F1 GT, was developed to achieve downforce matching that of the F1 LM, but with less drag. To achieve this balance, the F1 GT featured extended front bodywork and revised rear-deck profile. With such sleek lines and dramatic new wheel-arch louvres the F1 GT became visually the most exciting McLaren roadcar. Powered by the hand-built McLaren BMW S 70/2 6.1-litre V12 engine the F1 GT offered instant performance at any speed, in any gear. Featuring a redesigned interior, upholstered in fine Connolly leather and Alcantara suede the F1 GT set a new standard of luxury for Grand Touring cars. Continuing the design philosophy of the original F1 and the spectacular F1 LM, the F1 GT is the ultimate Grand Touring car.


In total only 3 McLaren F1 GTs were ever made. The unique long-tail GT holds the honour of the rarest of all versions of the McLaren F1. One of the three cars still belongs to McLaren with the other two the treasured possessions of their customers. And just like the LM, long-tail McLaren F1 GTs rarely change hands.
