  3. Latest find at flickr.
     
  4. Blood Red, McLaren's testing and development GTR. Rebuilt for Pink Floyd drummer, Nick Mason. UK road registered K40 MCL. Featured in Evo 47

    After watching the autocar review and seeing the shot of that spotless and glimmering engine bay, this is without a doubt the greatest hypercar on earth, especially being only 940 kgs. It is just pure rawness at its finest. Its to the point where its not even just a car anymore. It is a hypercar event so special that any other hypercar on the road next to it suddenly would become glaringly compromised and overlooked.

    I don't even have the words to begin to express what I feel for this car and the LM.

    Had seen that FlickR gallery before, but those two shots of the silver F1 in Hong Kong, which can now be solidly confirmed as #064, are new to me.

    Thanks for keeping this thread alive man! <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

  7. anyone know the history behind this one?
     
  8. It's GTR #12R - a 1996 F1 GTR. It was converted for road use and as you can see, is registered in the UK.

    It's owner for quite a long time has been Aaron Hsu and he's had the car back and forth from the UK to the USA over the years. Here in the USA, he could probably still get away with driving it on the UK plates if he wanted.

    He's had his hands on a few other F1s as well and currently owns an F1 road car, chassis #069, which is black with black wheels. It used to wear the High Downforce Kit, but it was removed from the car recently.

  11. nice pics.i just joined yesterday-do u know how do i post my own thread?
     
  12. What lap time do you think a non restricted F1 GTR, on slicks would have on the old Nurburgring?

    Would it beat the Raeder Gallardo?

    I think so.
     
  13. I prefer real answers over speculation, and since we don't even have a real time for the F1 road car it's an even tougher position to comment from.

    I have seen estimates from two sources that the road car should do about 7:40 or so which seems fair. If you had a dry track and could use slicks on the hypothetical-GTR, maybe you get down to the very low 7 minute range with a driver who was not only confident behind the wheel of the car, but also knows the 'Ring quite well. It would also depend on having no traffic. Quite an expensive test to organize when you include the price of the car, so I doubt we'll ever see it occur.

    ^^ You're in luck - there are plenty to choose from. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>

    To keep this thread going, here's a great set of photos taken by a former McLaren employee including some wonderful images of three F1s (F1, LM and longtail GTR) taken at the McLaren Technology Centre:
