Here's Why the McLaren F1 Is the Greatest Car Ever Made
The McLaren F1 is one of the most famous cars in history -- and possibly the very best car in history. Today I'm reviewing the McLaren F1, and I'm taking you on a full tour of the McLaren F1 -- then I'm getting the McLaren F1 out on the road with Jay Leno.

    Seat belts.... the left side, I regret to inform you, is not the driver's side. The right side is the driver's side. McLaren are a British car manufacturer, design by a British engineer. The left is where Americans position their drivers.

    At $35,000 a year to properly maintain a McLaren F1, that little romp out on the highway with Jay Leno easily cost about $1,000.

    Cost of an oil change is $8000!

    jay and doug are the king and queen of pretentiousness. 15 million reasons why it is the worst car ever made. it would cost you 15 million to get in one. my $6000 2008 335xi is a better car than the mc pos. it is winter here. and i would race the mcdungheap from wasilla to fairbanks, 350 miles, and not just win but the f1 would not even make the trip. i could do it with 4 family members with me. i could sell some bitcoin and buy an f1 but, no, it's a pos.

    No way, F40. Looks like a Ferrari and Lamborghini and the Venter seat is copied from the Lamborghini Egoista. Plus, not even a McLaren Engine,lol.

    Wow what a brilliant video. I'm amazed at the level of detail Doug goes to in his videos. He must read every owners manual from cover to cover. Easily the best car reviewer out there. Fascinating stuff ! 🚗👍

    Doug, this is definitely one of the best videos you’ve done. Thank you for dressing up for Jay!

    The F1 is fast and beautiful, but where do I put my- well.....anything? VW GTI is a much better car.

    You are one lucky man!! Just think you're one of the few people that's driven in the McLaren F1. I would have died and gone to heaven. Some might be put off by its minimalist design. I personally like it and furthermore. True sports cars weren't meant to be luxury vehicles. They were meant to be experienced as the ultimate road vehicles. Personally I'm just drooling right now. Just thinking what it must be like sitting in this beast. :b

    A did you know, in 93 the MKIV Supra was first produced and designed for 800hp. Was so wild it wasn't allowed to be produced. The engine is so strong can see them doing 6 second passes on quarter mile using a standard stick shift gearbox and engine block. All that gold and carbon fibre and a $45,000 Toyota could of decimated it if Toyota was allowed to make it.

  • kprice399

    A joy for sure

  • kprice399

    I don’t know what to say...Love Jay, his cars & show, but he should have let you drive. Every car guy knows you, & has seen your reviews. You know what your doing in a supercar. Great video, & love seeing Jay do his thing talk his talk cause he is a car guy, but he should have let you drive. Still, what a privilege.

    Doug is a nerd. I cant watch his videos. Too bad, because this indeed is an iconic car.

  • JuPp3

    Can't wait for the video that debunks the legitimacy of this car holding the title of fastest production car for a decade and take my ignorance away from yet another childhood memory, obliterating it.

    Except for the BMW engine, I bet the rest of the car falls apart fairly often. I've owned an English car before, they look great, but that's about the best thing I can say for them.

  • PhoenixUltraMotive

    And now Gordon Murray is remaking it in a more modern style in the GMA T50. And I know a dude getting one and I'd love to see if I can get you two in touch. However he lives a bit north of Cali, in Washington state, so I don't know if you're willing to make the trip

    Jay seems a pretty decent guy Doug and a car GNUTT. Im in Wellington New Zealand, we have a Great Car museum here its called Southward Car Museum, its online and i suggest you take a look, i met an old couple on Twitter who are both US living, she can do anything CAR by all accounts (My dream wifey) car nuts and restorers, i gave them the name and they got back to me and said that it is a World Class place and there are several cars there that they had NEVER seen before, and they reckon that...."Thats saying something" given their life long involvement in being petrol heads.
