McLaren F1 - The Science EXPLAINED
Visit Audible dot com slash bumper2bumper ( or text bumper2bumper to 500-500.
The McLaren F1 is considered by most to be the first hypercar ever. When McLaren and its lead designer, Gordon Murray, released it back in 1992 it shocked the automotive world with it unique design and race inspired functionality. The McLaren F1 was full of firsts, it used carbon fiber, space grade metals, it had a Formula One derived engine by BMW, and it had three seats! Three seats in a hypercar! And those are only a few of the incredible engineering features in the McLaren F1. Today we are going B2B on the car that managed to hold on to the title of fastest car in the world for TWELVE straight years, the McLaren F1.

    The McLaren F1 is _truly_ a race car for the road. For real, no marketing bumf. The tyres are _still_ $20,000 a set. Because you have to hire a race track, test driver, engineers and ambulance to set up new tyres. An F1 parked in a garage costs _$50,000_ in maintenance. Because half the parts have a shelf life even if you don't use them.

    Gordon Murray himself is around 6'4", so you can imagine he put a lot of thought into the ergonomics of the cockpit (especially as it relates to taller drivers). As a member myself of the 6'+ Lovers of Small Cars club, I thank him for his efforts!

    Honda can technically sell those V10 or V12 but why? Honda has always been making everything from scratch so its not viable and profitable because R&D of it will bankrupt Honda

    Funnily enough I had heard of Inconel before, And funnily enough it was also from something that was named the F1... F1 Rocket Engine... you know the engines on the Saturn V that sent people to the Moon :) So the Material has been around a while :) From the Wikipedia page for the Rocketdyne F-1 "The material used for the F-1 thrust chamber tube bundle, reinforcing bands and manifold was Inconel-X750, a refractory nickel based alloy capable of withstanding high temperatures. "

    Inconel has a melting point of 2,570 degrees Fahrenheit! Without this alloy metal there would be no “space” “program”. You can buy inconel exhaust valves for your race engines these days if you have enough cash.
