The McLaren F1 was set into production from 1992-1998 in which 106 units were manufactured. The car was originally built as a concept car by Gordon Murray, but he later convinced Ron Dennis (chairman of McLaren) to back up the F1-project and also engaged Peter Stevens to design the exterior of the car. The exterior was also inspired by the design of the Honda NSX.
The car is powered by a 6.1L S70/2 V12 engine which was built by BMW's engine expert, Paul Rosche.
The F1 is also known for being the first production car ever to have a complete carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) monocoque chassis structure which makes the car very light.
It was the fastest car in world until 2007, when the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 beat the F1's top speed. It is currently the world's fastest car with a naturally aspirated engine in the world. It has a fuel consumption of 47 liters per 100 km, which is equivalent to 5 miles per gallon.
The appearance of the McLaren F1 in World of Speed was confirmed on October 23rd, 2014.
