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.

    Me watching the bulk of the video: "Man, kinda surprised Jay himself isn't in the video, I've heard he's a genuinely great guy, and he'd probably have nice insights to add." Me watching the driving portion: "Haha, ok. Yeah, he is a genuinely nice guy!"

    I love sound of V8s, V10s, ferrari V12 and so on - but this one. This one is on completely another level, it sounds amazing. You can hear that BMW V12 LMR's heart beating there.

    Fact: Rowan Atkinson (you definitely know who he is) owned this car from 1997 to 2015, crashing it many times and lead to one of the largest insurance payouts in Britain, at £910,000 in August 2011. (Source: Wikipedia)

    Surprisingly and random random fact, but midnight club 3 had this car and it even got the driver driving the car in the middle of the car accurate. I only checked after seeing this video and I was dumbfounded 🤣.

    My last comment - I'm guessing that Jay is driving due to whatever insurance policy he has on that F!. I'm guessing other drivers are excluded from the policy (i.e. If the car is in an accident and Jay's not driving, there might not be any insurance. But kudos to Jay for taking it out for a drive to complete your great video!

  • David Epperson

    One request Doug - dimensions, esp. the curb weight. 650 hp doesn't alone get you to 240 mph. Great pains were made to get the weight down - would have loved to hear you discuss where that process ended (final curb weight). Still - a great video - cudos to you and to Jay.

  • Redmenace96

    Jay loves this car, the people seem to approve. I think that seating arrangement is silly. The interior doesn't strike me as good, either. It looks annoying and unergonomic. Dials are white! I like that.

    I actually COULD tell how light those tools were from the video 😂 just by the way Doug handled them

    One of the best clips you made Doug :D That part at the end where Leno puls hard in third gear - EPIC !

    And in fact the genius behind it sir gordon murray does not like his creation as he considers it flawed due to technology, material and time to get it from design to reality. If you want to hear what he says about it you can see a video of a recent interview given at the time of the launch of his new spiritual successor the murray design t50

    33:07 is my favorite part. That kind of pure "childhood dream achieved" look on Doug's face is just perfect.

    The F1 is the bomb. my favorite car for sure. I got to work on one from Japan that had a full carbon fiber body and was used for racing (had all the Japanese racing sticker\decals on it, safety features, etc. I'm nobody though, and don't know much about cars. I was the detailer at a Luxury & Super car dealer for a bit in the early 2000's.

    OMG you look like me delivering one of my lectures about why the Porsche is the greatest car ever made. The F1 looks too much like a Ferrari for starters & it's single biggest problem is IT’S NOT A PORSCHE. It has some nice qualities like the carbon fiber and the weight saving CD changer. It's best feature is the lack of doo dads that get added to cars & super cars which never get added to a Porsche. And ok so it's fast but about that modem. You know why a Porsche doesn't have one-they don't break down. That car has too many quirky features. And BTW the rear bonnet is not called a lid. 👍☮️🌞

    “It gets a 10 out of 10 on the ‘Cool Factor’. It doesn’t get any cooler than this.” This might have been true until the Corvette rolled out in 2019.

    I agree. THIIIIISSSSSSSS car is definitely the greatest car ever made.

    The F1 has won Le Mann once, so it has proven it can be one of the greats ; but Audi R8 has the record and many others won Le Mann several times. Thus the claim it is the best car ever made is highly questionable - let McLaren win Le Mann for 5 or 10 years straight and maybe I'd start to believe such a wild claim.

    It’s so funny. I found Doug about a year ago on accident and started watching all these videos. Start sending to all my buddies who are into cars and they all already know of him lol. These videos are exactly how I’d want to learn a car he’s kept it simple and he knows his stuff. I learn tons from these thanks man!
