Nice car, I will say from that angle the back does look like a S7 but the side is all F1

There's only a few cars that can top it. Not bad for being 11 to 17 years old.

On March 31, 1998, it set the record for the fastest production car in the world, 240.1 mph (386 km/h).[2] As of April 2009, the F1 is succeeded by three faster cars in sheer top speed, but is still the fastest naturally aspirated production car. You can haz all your fancy turbozzz.

# 0-30 mph (48 km/h): 1.8 s[4]
# 0–60 mph (97 km/h): 3.2 s[4]
# 0–100 mph (160 km/h): 6.3 s[4]
# 0–124.28 mph (200.01 km/h): 9.4 s[27]
# 0–150 mph (240 km/h): 12.8 s[4]
# 0–200 mph (320 km/h): 28 s[4]

* With rev limiter on: 231 mph (372 km/h)
* With rev limiter removed: 243 mph (391 km/h)

You mean the S7 looks like the F1 from that angle.

I forgot that its still the fastest n/a, which is bad *** in itself. Being able to go faster than any other n/a car in the world (from the factory) and outrunning 99.9% of forced induction cars from the factory. Its still king.

I'm flabbergasted at the comments of not knowing what a McLaren F1 is. Really?

I still view this piece as the peak of supercardom...the McLaren is a lightweight racing machine.

Keep your Veyron.

It's still the PEAK of the automotive world in my book

Speaking of the Carrera GT, I saw one (the first I'd ever seen in person at the time) on my way home from work one day with some huge *** chrome wheels that should have been on an Escalade. I wanted to get out of my car and punch the guy in the face, Ugh.

Worlds smallest attack sub? New personal spaceshuttle?

2 mil för that, when you can get a koenigsegg?
