Every McLaren F1 made lost money, such was the attention to detail and over-meticulous design from the UK-based F1 team. Just 100 were produced, going to specialist collectors around the world and having standard extras such as a complete tool kit (a 6ft/1.8m high chest), gold-plated engine bay, custom-fit McLaren F1 luggage, and full McLaren engine diagnostics anywhere in the world. The F1 was made from carbon composites with honeycomb crossbeams for an immensely strong structure. It needed every bit of strength with power that could accelerate the car to 150mph (241km/h) in 12 seconds. The undertray used venturi tunnels to create a drop in pressure, thus pulling the car towards the ground. A central driving position was ideal and the car easy to drive. At around $1,130,000 when debuted, it was the most expensive road car ever to buy new.
