      Does anyone know the price-tag on these things? I know it's lame I replied to the top comment, but I feel like most people would be interested in knowing.

    I'd take the MP4 over the F1 — but I'll let the thumbs decide which is better–>

      Same here… F1 is badass but its a museium piece. MP4-12C is actually usable.

    I liked the three seater layout. Wacky for sure, but unique and pretty cool. I read somewhere that there were three pages in the manual on the right steps to get in and out of the car. New one look cleaner though. sick tits!

      The purpose of this layout was that you can drive around with your wife and maîtresse at the same time without them fighting each other!

    No cup holders?

      NO. This is a McLaren. You're gonna be a little fucking busy for that.

      • jay

        You're right. It's probably got a CD player.

  • Vyle

    I'll take the F1LM. The older ones still among the fastest production cars to date!!

    I'd take either one, straight up for my clunker…

  • eLurker

    Unoriginal. Looks like they ripped of the Saleen S7 (google images and you will see what I mean).

    • sea cow

      I believe you meant that comment the other way around

    • Ethix

      How is it possible to be that stupid? McLaren F1 started production in '92, the Saleen S7 started production in '00. I don't know if you know how to math good, but one number is obviously before the other.

      • That dude

        Engwish much Ethix ?

    • Kenton

      Morons have figured out how to chive 😦

    • Vyle

      You should change your name to eDERP. You're fired from the Internet!

    • Fonzie

      He means the newer one -_-

  • Brother Maynard

    Still love the F1, it will never have an equal.

  • Soldier_2k1

    I saw the MP4 smashed to pieces on the autobahn last month…I almost shat myself and cried at the same time.

  • Jon

    The F1 is iconic, the MP4 is boring.

    • Ethix

      Get behind the wheel of one, I think you'll change your mind. One of the best track cars on the market.

      • Kenny

        Not too many of us (read: 1, maybe 2) have the financial ability to even be in the same room as these cars, let alone drive one!

    • S L

      You cant drive the majority of supercars day to day, they are awful to drive off the track.

      The MP4 and the latest Merc are 2 cars that you can be comfortable in and drive anywhere and still get there fast..

  • Aaron

    Those are sweet and everything but how is a 6'4" 280lb tank ass like myself supposed to fit?!

    • Thomas D.

      As a fellow 6'4" 260lb fellow tank ass—you're not.

    • Mikey

      If you're lucky enough to get an F1 the factory will actually customize the interior of the car to your specifications. Of course, you do have to pay to have it shipped back to England. But if you can afford one, then shipping a car and taking a nice trip to the UK shouldn't be much of a problem for you

    Cars again Rick? Are you moving the Throttle to the Chive?

    the f1 because it was such a ground breaking beast of a car.. it set the standards for hyper car royalty. the mp4-c, altho an amazing feat of engineering, has no soul

  • https://www.facebook.com/kyle.antonucci.3 Kyle Antonucci

    not even a question F1 all day

  • Jon

    The F1 was so original and still is the MP4 is just another supercar. The three up seating is great for the guy who needs room for 2 ladies. If you can afford these cars you can afford ladies on either side.

    All these "Supercars" are starting to look a lot alike. Give me that Rat Rod from yesterday.

    The F1 from 1991 if I recall corectly.. is my favorite. What a great supercar!

    • Rick

      correct but the ones in this post are from '94

  • payheed

    Check out Top Gear's review of the MP4. They called it an engineering masterpiece but they felt it was "missing something."

    • mrjimmyos

      Yeah it wasn't something you'd crash through the pearly gates at 200mph in reverse with, it doesnt scare you

    McLaren….. oh man. Ever since I heard about that car in Elementary School, it's always been like a legend. Everyone always knew it as the "fastest street-legal car", at least the people I hung out with. That thing is beautiful. F1 ALL DAY.

  • Csquared303

    Both are really cool! $$$$ though…..

  • mat
