The original McLaren F1 press release reveals every detail of the legendary V12 supercar
May 28, 2016 — At this years’s Monaco Grand Prix McLaren re-published the original McLaren F1 press release in full. The date marked 24 years since the 1992 Monaco Grand Prix, where the F1 road car was first presented at the Sporting Club Monaco. At the time, McLaren had won seven of the previous eight drivers’ titles and was on a high.
The name McLaren F1 implied an F1-inspired spirit but its technology was influenced by the pioneering early days of motoring, from bespoke specification options for buyers to a completely clean sheet in terms of engineering.
