For all the comments about how the "F1 can't possibly only have 627PS" based on its acceleration figures and top speed: Yes and no. The engine is rated at 627PS, but it has a ram air roof scoop that can increase its power at speed. Possibly the car could have over 640hp.

Acceleration. you are comparing the F1's acceleration with cars like the 720s/765lt in terms of acceleration without factoring the F1 power to weight. The F1 weighed 1138kg WITH fuel, while a 720s will weigh well over 300kg than it. As Sir Issac Newton would put it. Acceleration = Force/Mass. So it only made sense that the F1 accelerated as fast as these 2 cars above 100mph.

Top speed: The F1 is MUCH more aero dynamically efficient, and it's a much smaller car. Just by that calculation, The 720s/765 may need 25-35% more power to match the same top speed.

Then it also depends on the gearing, as in does peak power arrive at top speed? Turbo charged engines get max power lower in the rev range and taper off towards the red line. The 720s when shifting to 7th gear, the car slows down due to revs being too low. But In 6th gear it hits 216mph around 8000rpm. Peak power is between 6500-7000rpm, and the car has 50hp less above 7500rpm. Meanwhile the F1's peak power arrives at the red line, precisely at peak power because it's a N/A engine.

The F1 had so little drag and downforce that the car would start moving around above 200mph. Today's cars are much bigger, heavier, stable, safer and care more about cornering grip, hence need a lot more power to move.

Before people critiqued Nurburgring times for modern supercars, there was controversy regarding the F1's curb weight figure. It was supposedly in the 1270-1290kg range as far as actual curb weight figures go. I don't really agree because Road & Track tested an Ameritech model and reported 1288kg (2840lb) for the US-regulated and grey-market import version of the F1 model.

https://www.supercars.net/forum/threads/a-great-mclaren-f1-lm-article-by-gordon-murray.12088/page-4

Even with a manual transmission, the F1 fell in-between an Enzo and a Veyron as far as straight-line performance figures went in average magazine testing. In some cases, the F1 is also faster than especially the US-spec Veyron. It's just as fast as the Saleen S7 Twin Turbo, the Ultima GTR 720, and post-2003 Koenigsegg CC models.

I can admit, however, that the dry weight figure is not much less at 1100kg. As a lightweight supercar with barely any tech features, its curb weight is only 40kg heavier (and that's not uncommon; we've seen that even in modern Lotus sports cars).

An F1 is not a BMW any more than a Zonda or Huayra is a Mercedes. Btw, NEITHER automaker has made a true supercar in the $200-500k range. Not counting grand tourers. Audi is far ahead of the game!

A stock car will never be able to hit those top speeds.

They shoot these videos with racebox and they will not tell you everything is upgraded.

Brakes also suck.

Mr Bean crashed in his several times and could have ended up dead.

I would choose this over any mclaren

McLaren F1 is one of the best cars of all time and one of my personal favorites. But still, justice requires putting everything in its place.
There is too much incorrect data on this page that gives an erroneous impression about the capabilities of this car.
Therefore, some points need to be corrected:

1) Top speed.
McLaren F1 speed records-371 km / h Autocar, 386 km / h in Ehra-Lessien, 372 km / h in Nardo, etc., all set by prototypes - XP-3, XP-5 etc. The standard stock McLaren F1 hit 7500 rpm rev limiter at about 360 km/h (which was still a record for the time).

2) Lap time at the Estoril track.
It looks very impressive considering that there were 3 people in the car, and laptime is in the same league with C6 ZR-1 and GT-R. But in fact, the track underwent significant changes in 1999 and these times are not comparable.

https://www.flickr.com/photos/69432036@N04/sets/72157632497173608/

https://www.racingcircuits.info/europe/portugal/estoril.html

I looked at the laptimes of DTM cars in these configurations, and they differ by about 6-7%. Therefore, we can assume that in a modern configuration, F1 lap time would be approximately on par with the Civic Type R FK2, which in general is also quite impressive for a 1994 car with two passengers on board.

3) Lap time at the Bedford track.
The tested car, which showed a faster time than Enzo, was not a stock car. It had Flemke modified suspension and brakes, custom made BBS wheels, and wider tires Bridgestone Potenza RE050A 245/35ZR19 & 345/35ZR19.

To have all detail you need to read pistonheads topic

http://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?h=0&f=226&t=226933&mid=0&i=0&nmt=Flemke+%2D+Is+this+your+McLaren%3F&mid=0

At the laptime page, we need to make an appropriate note.

4) Estimated lap times.
I don’t know how these figures were obtained, by some sort of calculation or by simulation in the Assetto Corsa, but 7: 18 on the Nordschleife and other laptimes in my opinion look very difficult to achieve for a car with brakes and tire technology of 1994. Perhaps F1 LM could make it, but for a standart F1, the numbers are unrealistic.

I hope this message will not go unnoticed.
