This instance of the 27R chassis was the first of 10 McLaren F1 GTR Longtail cars to win any of the competitions.

Dealer of classic and rare cars Tom Hartley Jnr. put up for sale a copy of the racing supercar McLaren F1 GTR Longtail, which received permits for driving on public roads.

It was this car that participated in the supermarathon “24 Hours of Le Mans” in 1997, the 1997 FIA GT Championship and the 1999 British Championship GT.

Of course, the former racing career of the supercar was the cause of the restoration work. To obtain permission for driving on public roads, the supercar was finalized by Lanzante, whose specialists put their hands on creating a road version of the hypercar P1 GTR.

The McLaren F1 GTR of the 1997 model received an extended body in the rear and a Longtail attachment. This was done to increase the downforce. In comparison with the first version of 1995, the working volume of the atmospheric engine V12 decreased from 6.1 to 6.0 liters, and power – from 608 to 592 horsepower. As a transmission, a six-speed sequential gearbox is used. The weight of a supercar is only 910 kilograms.

The price of a supercar is not known. The dealer discloses it only to real “customers”. However, in 2014, a copy of the McLaren F1 GTR Longtail with the number of the 21R chassis was sold for 5.28 million US dollars.
