  1. heh do you guys think they are gonna make a new better mclaren any time soon or a couple years to come? BTW: Mclaren is my fav car if you wonderin'! :p
     
  2. why and proof?
     
  3. McLaren is a Formula 1 team. The F1 was just a one-off road car (by that I don't mean they just made one). I doubt they will make a new road car. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
     
  4. I THINK PININ IF MORE AND MORE PEOPLE START THINKING ( Speed Kills! Drive a Honda and live forever) LIKE YOU ALL THE CAR COMPANIES WOULD SHUT DOWN.THE CAR ABOVE IS DAMN GOOD I WONDER IF BY GIVING WENTS THEY WOUL INCREASE THE WEIGHT
     
  5. They shouldnt because yes many modifyed cars can beat its topspeed record but this is still the orginal record holder for being the fastest car in the world!
     
  6. I couldn't descifer what you posted but just to clarify, IMO the McLaren F1 is the best car in the world.

    Try posting that again in English.
     
  7. What proof? Do you have "proof" that says otherwise?

    McLaren Cars, Ltd. already proved there point and set an industry milestone with the F1. Why should they have to do it again?
     
  8. You don't need proof. You asked if anyone THINKS if they might produce a new roadcar, and Pinin replied what he thought and said, "No." He only said what he thought, and just like the rest of us sane people, we don't feel that we need to rag people about proof for what they think if there is no need FOR proof. So please just drop trying to have "proof".
     
  9. Before you decided to start ragging on me, maybe you should have noticed that I am NOT "nfs01." I am not the one who started this topic and I'm not the one who asked if anyone THINKS if they might produce a new roadcar.

    Jeez...I wish some people will take more notice of things...
     
  10. Sorry, I quoted the wrong one. U-n-I are cool. I meant to quote nfs01. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>
     
  11. Actually, It is impossible at the moment for McLaren to biuld a new road car even if they wanted too. The McLaren F1 was biult by McLaren and powered by a BMW derived engine. This can't be done anymore. In Formula 1 racing, BMW supplies engines to Williams F1; while McLaren runs Mercedes engines. Thus until McLaren and BMW start working together again there is no chance of any more McLaren F1s!

    The SLR McLaren is the spiritual successor to the McLaren F1 beacuse it is a McLaren developed road car powered by a Mercedes drive train, reflecting the current Formula 1 partnership between the two groups.
     
  12. The SLR is more Mercedes than McLaren. Basically, Mercedes dictated the McLaren designers what they wanted in the car instead of letting McLaren do what they wanted.

    It's no successor to the F1 in anyway imaginable.
     
  13. Mclaren F1 is the best car ever
     
  14. I realy realy hope so, the F1 & F1 LM were and still are sweet!
     
  15. Well the mclaren engeniers are making the Caparo T1. That car made my top 5.
     
  16. there should not be a another mclaren f1 WHY??? because its the best all moter car there is and doesnt need a quad turbo system or 16 cylinders for the ooo soo great ride
     
  17. If i'm not mistaken the Caparo T1 is the nearest you can get at the moment, it was designed by some McLaren engineers who left the company.
     
  18. Unless McLaren and Mercedes fall out, you will never see anything similar coming out of the Woking factory
     
  19. Just to jump in randomly without reading any post
    The may not make anther Mclaren...its a one off car

    Hence its the best road car... EVER
     
  20. no i don't think, what would they really need a new car for?
     
  21. a new mclaren would be sweet!
     
  22. i think that mercedes and mclaren could make a new "hypercar", not necessarily a new f1. mercedes for one make better engines than bmw, and it is quite possible that they could make a car like the f1, but incorporating more modern technology as the f1 is now turning 15 years old.

    everyone thought that the xj220 couldnt be beaten, then the f1 was made. now similar things are being said about the veyron, and yes they have made the caparo t1, but i think a car like the original f1 could be made again and be much faster than the veyron and much better looking and more practical than the t1.
     
  23. Yes, a new McLaren which is faster, more stylish, much more practical, and has everything a car needs may be very sweet indeed... But then, it could never have as much impact as the original McLaren F1. The McLaren F1 is the greatest car ever made... It's just irreplacable.

    Same can be said to the Ferrari F40, Lamborghini Countach, Jaguar E-type, Aston Martin DB5, and even the original track-bred Mercedes CLK-GTR. All of these cars together with the F1 McLaren are Legends!!!
