text size: A- A+
We won’t spoil this awesome video by revealing any of the details, but we do want to remind you that the McLaren F1 is already 21 years old, which makes it even more impressive. Only 106 units were built, all powered by a BMW M designed 6.1-liter 60-degree V12 engine. Note that the mill provides 618 HP and weighs only 266 kg (586 lbs), with the standard F1 being rated at 550 HP per ton.
