Until this vehicle surfaced, finding a 1997 McLaren F1 GTR Longtail was a near impossible task, as most are being safely stored in collections worldwide. Only 10 of the 28 McLaren F1 GTR race cars were are Longtails, and this fine specimen, chassis #19R, is being offered by Tom Hartley JNR in the U.K. Why are they called Longtails? It’s because of their stretched bodywork, most noticeably at the rear.
The McLaren 720S Spider is already one of the world’s fastest convertibles, despite weighing 100-pounds more than its hardtop counterpart. Speaking of hardtops, its retractable system is made from a single piece of carbon fiber and takes just 11-seconds to open or close it, and can be operated at speeds up to 31 mph. What could make this supercar even better? How about lots more carbon fiber and a big power boost, courtesy of Novitec.
McLaren Denver commissioned the Pikes Peak Collection of McLaren 600LT Spiders through McLaren Special Operations (MSO) and each of the six cars boast a unique MSO Bespoke or MSO Heritage paintwork – Black Gold, White Gold, Nerello Red, Volcano Red, Aurora Blue and Midas Grey. They all feature a gold and matte black vinyl stripe over the hood and roof, finished off with sleek Satin Speedline Gold Wheels.
