To many of us who grew up in the 1990s, the McLaren F1 is the holy grail. Faster than anything else by leaps and bounds, more powerful than anything else by leaps and bounds, and as rare as a unicorn, it represented the ultimate car. So here's 18 of those unicorns, all driving together.
106 cars were eventually built, including various prototypes, so the 18 cars gathered here represent almost 17% of total production. For comparison, if you gathered 17% of total Volkswagen Beetle production in one place, you'd need an enormous parking lot to fit the over 3,600,000 cars.
It's rare, is what I'm saying.
So to catch them in a video is even rarer. It's like if you spent your entire life searching for your one true love, and a video just pops up on Youtube, with 18 of them. Each one is incredibly beautiful, and they come in standard, GTR, and high-downforce configuration varieties. All are stunning in their own ways. Their BMW V12s sing out, and all is right with the world.
This meeting in Tuscany is also where one of the McLarens flipped into a ditch and was completely ruined, so maybe not everything is right with the world. But that one is being repaired, so.
