There is no more iconic racer of the 1990s than the McLaren F1 GTR. Not only was it based on the dream car of every kid growing up then, but it also managed to dominate Le Mans before other automakers wised up to the ways of the GT1 class. But its V12 still sounds absolutely glorious.

Luckily for us, a lot of the original racing McLaren F1 GTRs have now been converted to road use, meaning that it’s possible (albeit exceedingly unlikely!) you might see one drive past you on the street. But after watching this, you’ll know what it sounds like before it even gets there.
