Last Call- Pretty Fly For a McLaren Guy Edition

Jed Leceister Audi Q3 White blue

When it was new, McLaren’s brilliant and no-compromise F1 cost as much as some small private aircraft. At the time it was new, it claimed the title of fastest zero to sixty to zero car, making it comparably fast as some of those cheaper planes.  Here finally is the last piece of that F1/airplane conundrum, as you can see, it flies too.

    I was just complaining on G+ that a video of an Enzo doing some pretty cool stuff on a muddy road was wrongly called "rally" because it included no Sweet Jumps…
    McLaren can be my supercar WRC rally sponsor anytime! O_O

    You know, considering it's 1+2 seating arrangement, and the fact that it has multiple trunks, the McLaren F1 is the most practical super car…IN THE WORLD.

      -Variable ride height.
      -Probably a trunk I guess?
      -Coveted V12 fuel economy!

    there are some very interesting angles in those tires.
    …im still trying to figure out the reasons. the back makes sense, but the front?

      Negative camber on double wishbones would be fairly constant from compression to droop wouldn't it? We are all too used to the camber change with struts, Chapman & McPherson. Incidentally didn't the F1 have a patent fo it's front suspension because of the way the longitudinal compliance loads were seperated out from the lateral cornering loads? I'm at work without my copy of "Driving Ambition" ,so I can't check.

      Which event was I supposed to notice? "Superior bowlers sweep Duluth in annual all-star match", or Tom and Sharon Moran's wedding?
