McLaren F1 GTR ‘Long Tail’ Privateer Race Car up for Sale in Japan

McLaren F1 GTR ‘Longtail’ Privateer Race Car up for Sale in Japan
For those whose cash reserves have not been completely depleted by the current global recession, a very special car is currently up for sale in Japan via Wintel. This car is one of ten long-tail McLaren F1 GTRs built especially for the 1997 FIA GT season.

From the history, the F1 GTR first hit the track in 1995 when a model barely removed from the roadgoing version raced to victory at Le Mans. Mercedes-Benz and Porsche had seen the writing on the wall by 1997, and combined with the series’ updated rules, had created their own competitors, including the CLK-GTR and the 911 GT1. McLaren’s 97 F1 GTR had all-new bodywork with a longer nose and tail that reduced drag and dramatically increased downforce. Meanwhile, for this time, the new purpose-built Mercedes and Porsche cars were regularly outrunning the McLaren, although the latter did manage 197 mph on the Mulsanne straight at Le Mans. There is no indication of a price tag yet.
