Leno Shows Us The Engine From His McLaren F1


The F1 can still impress us today.

It’s pretty close to impossible to talk about the McLaren F1 without making some serious understatements. To say that it was a massive technical achievement, or that it was well ahead of its time is an entirely inadequate way to describe the hypercar. In an effort to help us understand this, Jay Leno has made a video where he talks about the BMW-built V12, technical marvel that it is, which has just been pulled out of his own F1.

The performance figures for the F1 are still impressive today, in a way which only a car that reigned almost completely unchallenged as king of the supercars for more than a decade can be.
