McLaren completely refurbished its F1 model

The British company McLaren has certified its own project with the restored supercar Le-Mans F1 GTR Longtail. It took 4 years to work to completely recreate the historical image.

It took McLaren four years to design, prepare, refurbish and test the supercar in action. To the smallest detail, the chassis of the model F1 instance has been repaired. But the whole car has undergone changes. By the way, this supercar will be presented at an exhibition in the UK on September 6-8.

 Further, the company began to trim the interior with semi-aniline gray leather, as was the case in the original McLaren Le-Mans F1 GTR during the years of production. Exactly the same color is used on the dashboard and driver’s seat. The steering wheel has also undergone a design change. Note that all elements of the body and interior are identical to those that were installed in the supercar during its production at the factory.

Upon completion of the trim, all body parts were installed after they were painted in magnesium-silver color. The entire restoration of the legendary car along with test tests took 3,000 hours.

The 6.1-liter supercar engine has also undergone restoration. The company also had to make sure that it produces the same 618 horsepower, and the car still accelerates to 391 km / h.

Thanks to McLaren Special Operations (MSO), every refurbished vehicle must pass the certification of individuality and authenticity.
