McLaren F1

The team also produced tiny volumes of an extremely expensive road-going car known as the "McLaren F1", priced at $1million. BMW was commissioned to design and build the car's engine, a 6.1-litre V12 producing 627 bhp. A three-seater with an unusual central driving position, the F1 is one of the fastest production cars ever made, with an independently measured top speed of over 360 km/h (225 mph). The only other comparable vehicle is the Bugatti EB110.

In 1995, a McLaren F1 GTR won the 24 hours of Le Mans race.
