The McLaren F1 is one of the fastest road-going cars in GT5. The naturally-aspirated V12 located amidships puts out 627 horsepower, and the lack of a turbo or a supercharger necessitates very fine throttle control when coming out of a turn (this is less of a problem in longer races, as the tires get warmer and warmer, which generates more friction and makes for easier throttle application). However, the car turns in well and demonstrates extreme balance through the center of the corner. The F1's top speed in the game is lower than in real life (in the game, the car seems to have trouble getting past 225 miles per hour out of the draft, whereas in real life the the car has been recorded traveling up to 240). It is extremely quick in the draft: a three-car bump draft (also called a "tandem draft") can reach speeds of over 260 miles per hour on Special Stage Route X, and a two-car tandem can get up to 240. This extreme drafting ability can allow the McLaren to slingshot by other supercars such as the Cadillac Cien and distance them by over 12 car-lengths in many situations, and the car can accelerate out of most corners faster than any production car in the game. The car's blistering straight-line performance and precise handling can, when combined with good throttle control leaving a corner, make it unbeatable on virtually every course in the game by anything besides another F1 (at least, while going up against other road cars).


The McLaren F1 has two GT racing versions: the "Long Tail" version and the "Short Tail" version. The "Long Tail" is the only version available in the Gran Turismo series and is available from the BMW dealership in Gran Turismo 4 or as a Standard car in the Used Car Dealership or the Online Car Dealership in GT5.

Trivia Edit

  • The car's engine bay is gold-plated for optimum heat reflection
  • The driver's seat is located in the middle of the cabin
  • In the actual road car, despite featuring a CD player, it has no radio.
  • It doesn't have an actual handbrake; instead, the rear brake caliper is electronically controlled to emulate a handbrake.
