  1. Take a look at this pic (which hopefully will not be erased), its of a former BMW bigwig's Mclaren that was wrecked when he decided to do 200 on the Autobahn...<!-- Signature -->

    And gues what else, Mclaren crash tested a stripped down F1 before it went into production...<!-- Signature -->

    After they crash tested the car, it was the only car ever to actually be able to drive after the test.

    Really?!?! I'm not to suprised, its a well built car. Besides, could McLaren afford to throw it away?<!-- Signature -->

    probably because the Mclaren F1 is really unstable at high speed, however the GT and LM versions had different ways of solving the same problem!!!!!!!!!!!! the GT just allowed the F1 to keep its top speed
    lol

    the Jaguar XJ220, tested by German and American government, was
    still driveable after they crashed-tested it. Sooooooo,....the
    F1 was NOT the first and only car in this category. Sorry
    for the disappointment.

    Actually it was the only one tested at MIRA that drove away, as you said the other ones were tested in Germany and America. The test varies from place to place.

    I don't see why they can't keep stable at high speeds. The aerodynamics are great.<!-- Signature -->
