McLaren goes back in time to take a closer look at the unique F1 owners manual [video]

McLaren F1 is one of the most iconic modern day supercars. Between 1992 and 1998 a total of 106 cars were manufactured.

Powered by a 627bhp 6.1-litre V12 engine, the F1 became the world’s fastest production car in March 1998, reaching 231 mph (372 km/h) with the rev limiter enabled, and 243 mph (391 km/h) with the rev limiter removed.

Those who managed to buy one have clearly made a good investment as used cars are selling already for up to £6.2m.

In the video below we get an interesting look at history as Mark Roberts, Design Operations Manager, remembers his first job at McLaren – illustrating the McLaren F1 Owner’s Handbook.

Today supercar manuals are all largely digital and often come on iPads, so it is very interesting to the idea and vision behind the unique book that accompanied the iconic F1.
