Steve Sutcliffe of Autocar tests the McLaren F1 GTR
From September 2, 2009 – As reported by Autocar.co.uk, this is the very first McLaren F1 GTR to have been made road legal and is owned by Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason. The car in question had to be insured for £2.5 million before Steve Sutcliffe was even allowed behind the wheel. Learn more about the McLaren F1 road car.
According to Sutcliffe:
No mere mortal could ever possibly understand how much raw energy the F1 GTR has at its disposal, or how easily it will generate wheelspin; even in third gear on a bone-dry road you can turn it around at anything less than 60mph.
