      Finally. I've been listening to the same 10 CDs ever since I've bought mine! I though I had to resort to buy a new McLaren to be able to listen to more CDs.

    I hate it when Doug doesn't know what the fuck he's talking about. That's not a unique engine. It's the same engine used in the 850, but with the heads of the much better S50.
    Having said that, it's a shame that BMW never made a proper V12, based on the S54 or even a quad turbo V12 based on the N55.

    He Can’t drive it because of insurance? Jay Leno has the money to own every F1 ever made, with 300 million still in the bank. I watch celebrities let him drive their irreplaceable cars every week on JLG. But when it’s his turn to turn over the keys. INSURANCE! Give me a break!

    The best car ever. No turbo, just true power. The nearest is Laferrari which has also no turbo and a fantastic sound. However the Mclaren F1 is still faster than the Laferrari.

    If not, they could hire someone to develop a emulator of that exact computer for historic preservation, since those computers will eventually die.

    Some people are luuuucky mother fkers. to own multiple cars and or homes. I'm a 33yr old male born in 1987, born out of a mistake one night stand when my mum and dad met on a party bus, and despite having 2 jobs i'll never own a home because even derelict crack dens are worth over a million nowadays, and i'll never be able to travel overseas because money surplus doesn't exist and you have to have vaccination passports as well as a regular passport which in itself is unobtainable due to requiring several birth certificates of fellow relatives who I have no contact with (this process used to be a lot easier), and i'll most likely never have a luxury car unless one of my great ideas can miraculously gain funding to get traction and take off before someone who has money does it.
    It's 2021 and I drive a 1993 Duel Cab Ute and I'm happy for that, I'm luckier than lots of people to have her, she's a good girl.. I've learned with age and fruitless hard work to be happy with complete minimalism, that being said.. it's abundantly unfair that some people's worth is far greater than others who might actually work harder and or be exposed to far greater risk.
    It's no secret that capitalism enables the rich to get richer and the poor to get poorer, said rich often not caring about the environment or anyone except their own rise in profits, but certainly eluding to. Common people just sit back and let it go on, the same majority who're responsible for holding the government up enable it to go on prioritising people who have money over integrity.
    So whether its COVID or WWIII or a decade of disastrous and cataclysmic global warming events which reduce our humanity down to a finite figure whilst the most important of us like Phillip Morris and Jay Leno etc are all safe cozy and sexed up in a luxury bunker with multiple European sports cars, abundance of cocaine served by bikini models and an underground race track.
    Us common people have beckoned our own demise for no real gain other than to merely survive whilst helping to make the rich so ridiculously rich at the planet and our future generations expense. You could almost say this situation is irreversible at this point, there's no going back, 'we've made our bed'. Sad that we can't have some more integral members of our species set to prevail the next stages instead of just the savviest most ruthless capitalists who did the destruction in the first place.

      Teslas at Autobahn speeds or after some full accelerations overheat and then limit power output. I don't know if that's the case for every street legal E-car. For sure that's hardly a comparison to a McLaren F1, whose engine proved multiple times to survive 24 hour races at maximum stress.

    What an avalanche of information, so fast and monotonously delivered that it throw me into unconsciousness after 15 minutes. Than I woke up and watch till 26:00 and I couldn't listen to that speed and high pitch no more. Than I read some comment, and thanx to them I watched the part when Jay jump in, and happily realized that the young man can even speak normally when under some authority control.
    38:00 it can get how much "tens" as it gets, but I think that it not justify that amount of money it need (even if with that gold back isolation.)

I’m baffled and utterly confused how it’s worth 16M? Like, wtf? 😵‍💫 I wouldn’t pay that sort of money even if I had Jeff Bezos numbers. To me, it’s barely worth 50K 🤷🏻‍♂️ absolutely nothing about it that I can see as to why it commands such a price. Ludicrous 🙄

      @oranges exactly, now we’re getting somewhere. The reason there is so much interest is as you say, the price is increasing.

      @Clinton Manning Not worth the money, probably. But it's only going to keep increasing. The F1 was originally priced at just under a million quid, by 2010 was around two mil, and by 2016 it went up to 15 million. Unless the buyer is Jay Leno, people are buying these valuable cars because they just keep going up in value.

    • Clinton Manning

      @oranges Although that may be correct, I don’t buy it for a minute. Just because there is only 6 made or however many there are doesn’t make it worth 18M in my opinion. You’re just not getting enough value for your money. You’re paying well over the odds for uniqueness without quality. 17M of that money is basically funding your admittance to an elite club, it has little to do with the quality of the car.

      When customers wanted to race the McLaren F1 in GT1 competition McLaren built some GTR spec F1s and due to the FIA GT1 rules at the time they had to install an air restrictor whose size was determined by the type and capacity of the engine (normally aspirated, 6.1 litre) and maybe also overall car weight I'm not sure anymore. That reduced it's power output by some horses. BMW later made a smaller engine version for the 96 GTR upgrade spec to fall below the 6 litre limit which allowed them to use a less restricting restrictor or however you'd say that in English :-)
