2. McLaren F1
It is hard to comprehend, but they never imported the legendary McLaren F1 to America. Yes, there are a few examples here, but they are basically sculptures with no license plates. Now, 25 years after the F1 rocked the world of supercars, you can finally own one of these bespoke sports cars in America and register it, too. This is the last analog supercar, so driving it for a road trip across America would be an interesting way to introduce this car to the States.
Car enthusiasts have written so much about the F1, such as the way McLaren designed and produced it. They also write about the way it changed the supercars’ world forever. They presented the F1 in 1992. It stayed in production until 1998. During that period, McLaren produced 106 cars, including the GT-R versions, which were highly successful racing models. The F1 featured a bespoke 6.1-liter V12 engine BMW Motorsport made, which delivered 627 HP and used a six-speed manual transmission.
The road versions of the F1 had an interesting, three-seat configuration with the driver’s seat in the middle of the cabin. They also put the steering wheel in the center of the dash. The initial testing, racing success and overall excellence of the package declared the F1 one of the best supercars of all time. The price of the F1 was around a million dollars when new, but perfect examples trade hands for 10 to 15 times as much right now.
