Super Car : McLaren F1

December 16th, 2012 admin 
Mc Laren F1The McLaren F1 is a sports car designed and manufactured by Gordon Murray and McLaren Automotive. On 31 March 1998, it set the record for the fastest production car in the world, 240 mph (391 km/h). As of April 2009, the F1 is surpassed by only four other production cars in sheer top speed, but is still the fastest naturally aspirated production car.
The car features numerous proprietary designs and technologies. It is lighter and has a more streamlined structure than even most of its modern rivals and competitors despite having one seat more than most similar sports cars, with the driver’s seat located in the middle. It features a powerful engine and is somewhat track oriented, but not to the degree that it compromises everyday usability and comfort.
It was conceived as an exercise in creating what its designers hoped would be considered the ultimate road car. Despite not having been designed as a track machine, a modified race car edition of the vehicle won several races, including the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1995, where it faced purpose-built prototype race cars. Production began in 1992 and ended in 1998. In all, 106 cars were manufactured, with some variations in the design.

McLaren F1 Chassis and body

The McLaren F1 was the first production road car to use a complete carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) monocoque chassis structure. Aluminium and magnesium were used for attachment points for the suspension system, inserted directly into the CFRP.
The car features a central driving position – the driver’s seat is located in the middle, ahead of the fuel tank and ahead of the engine, with a passenger seat slightly behind and on either side.The doors on the vehicle move up and out when opened, and are thus of the type butterfly doors.
The engine produces high temperatures under full application and thus cause a high temperature variation in the engine bay from no operation to normal and full operation. CFRP becomes mechanically stressed over time from high heat transfer effects and thus the engine bay was decided to not be constructed from CFRP.
Mc Laren F1
In 1994, the British car magazine AutoCar stated in a road test regarding the F1, “The McLaren F1 is the finest driving machine yet built for the public road.” and that “The F1 will be remembered as one of the great events in the history of the car, and it may possibly be the fastest production road car the world will ever see.

McLaren F1 Performance

The F1 remains as of 2008 one of the fastest production cars ever made; as of July 2010 it is only succeeded by the Koenigsegg CCR, the Bugatti Veyron and the SSC Ultimate Aero TT. However, all of the superior top speed machines use forced induction to reach their respective top speeds – making the McLaren F1 the fastest naturally aspirated production car in the world.

McLaren F1 Cornering

Mclaren F1 GTR
When performing the lateral acceleration exercise around a 200 ft (61 m) skidpad (for testing some aspects of cornering performance), the standard F1 machine achieves 0.86 G; compared to 0.99 G for the Saleen S7, 1.01 G for the Ferrari Enzo and 1.15 G for the Koenigsegg CC (all post year 2000 vehicles).
The standard F1 can perform the slalom exercise at 64.5 miles per hour (103.8 km/h).
