Though it’s not as old as some of its supercar contemporaries, McLaren Automotive has, in its existence, established quite a glowing reputation for being one of the most desirable, most popular, and most expensive cars on the planet.
That being said, not many people know that McLaren’s pride and joy - the F1 - is celebrating its 20th anniversary. Yep, the very same car that was described two decades ago as the "the finest sports car the world had ever seen" is celebrating the big ’2-0’.
Apart from being one of the fastest production cars in the world, the McLaren F1 also dominated the auto racing world, running away with the 1995 GT1 championship, as well as finishing first, third, fourth, fifth, and thirteenth at the 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans.
And for its 20th birthday, McLaren threw quite a lavish party for the F1, inviting owners of the supercar to a dinner at the McLaren headquarters in Woking, England, where the owners were given a chance to rub elbows with other F1 owners and share their own fond memories of sitting behind the wheel of one of the world’s most popular supercars and, predictably, being the center of attention wherever they went.
