People hype the McLaren F1 up so much because of its fame in the so-called "Guinness World Record" during the late 1990s. They actually don't seem to realize that the 243mph record car was an XP5 prototype modified to match the power rating of an LM or higher with the mirrors removed.

(It's just as exaggerating to claim a stock F1 can reach 243 as it is to claim that a Ferrari 458 Italia can do a 10.9-second quarter-mile time at over 130 mph, or to claim that the earth is flat for that matter.)

NONE of the customer-owned bone-stock F1s (except for the LM course) are ANY faster than the Bugatti EB110SS or Jaguar XJ220. It will only hold its own until around 150mph due to its lighter weight and closer ratios between gears 1 and 5. In the real-world, the F1 is no hero. It's fast, it's very fast, but not the fastest.

The Jaguar XJ220S and Ferrari F50 GT both are the equivalents to the McLaren F1 LM and F1 GT. I don't know if Bugatti had an equivalent.

comparing the f1 to any of these cars is unfair the f1 is on a different level

power to weight wise, it was about 50% more lol.

Technically it is a competitor for these cars. Even though its acceleration puts it above Enzo and Carrera GT even, the dynamics (such as overall handling and steering) aren't as good. It also lacks the safety goodies of those cars.

The F1 is in a league of its own

Except it's not attractive.

They are all attractive. Crazy attractive for car geeks who know what's what. And that EB110SS could give McLaren F1 some competition in straight line tests and could perhaps beat it in some tracks. 4 wheel drive and 600 hp is a good combination.

Oh I know, it's just not beautiful. Individually to me. It's definitely the GOAT. But I always go back to the Jaguar. I don't care if it's slower or not as fast. In 1988 when it was unveiled it set the whole World alight. It was like a Supercar not seen before. I remember it perfectly. You know I'm a Bugatti man, but those earlier ones never really gelled with me, even now.

And we'll the F50 is the F50. Just need that engine in the Jaguar. ;)
