Can a car with the status of the McLaren F1 really be considered a giant-killer? Yes it can, when you consider the circumstances it was born into. The supercar wars raged throughout the Eighties, fuelled by the demands of wealthy market speculators who often traded their appreciating-asset supercars without actually driving them. But the cars needed credible high performance, so the technology came straight from the track.
Living with supercars such as the McLaren F1 need not be as expensive as people make it out to be. I’m constantly amazed at the huge bills a lot of people seem to rack up, some justified, some not. I recently watched a video on YouTube of a man who had bought an F1 a while back. He seemed like a nice enough fellow, but his problem, at least in my opinion, stemmed more from his lack ofknowledge than from the car itself.
