Watch Jay Leno extract the V12 from his McLaren F1

McLaren F1 is one of the most iconic supercars. Between 1992-1998 a total of 106 F1s were produced. Powered by a 627bhp 6.1-litre BMW V12 engine linked to a 6-speed manual gearbox, the F1 topped at 231 mph with rev limited on and 243 mph with rev limiter removed on March 1998, becoming the fastest road car in the world.

One of the lucky owners of the iconic McLaren F1 is an American talk show host and a big car guy Jay leno.

If you have wondered what the McLaren F1’s engine looks like up close when it’s not in a car then you are at the right place.

Recently Jay Leno had the BMW V12 extracted from his McLaren F1 to replace the leaking Vano unit.

Mr. Leno called it: “The scariest thing we have ever done here on Jay Leno’s Garage…”

Check out the video below to see Leno give a quick tour of the naturally-aspirated 627bhp 12-Cylinder V12.
