The McLaren F1 is a supercar designed and manufactured by McLaren Automotive. It was originally a concept conceived by Gordon Murray with backing from Ron Dennis and design work by Peter Stevens for the car's exterior.

Production began in 1992 and ended in 1998 with a total of 106 units with some variations in the design. The car was notable for the drivers' seat being placed on the centre with two passenger seats beside, making it a three-seater.

The British car magazine Autocar stated during a road test in 1994 that "The McLaren F1 is the finest driving machine yet built for the public road" and that "The F1 will be remembered as one of the great events in the history of the car, and it may possibly be the fastest production road car the world will ever see."

The McLaren F1 was the first road car from the company which until then had its focus solely on motorsports, especially in Formula One. It was the world's fastest production car until the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 entered production.

Need for Speed II

The McLaren F1 is the second fastest car in Need for Speed II, as the FZR 2000 has superior performance in every field. It appears as a class A car.

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2

The McLaren F1 is featured as a class A car in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2 alongside the McLaren F1 LM and Mercedes-Benz CLK-GTR.

Players will unlock the McLaren F1 upon earning 80,000 NFS points as well as the NFS Edition McLaren F1 upon earning 160,000 NFS points in the PC, Xbox, and Gamecube releases.

Players will unlock the McLaren F1 upon completing the Ultimate Racer Event 30 as well as the NFS Edition McLaren F1 upon earning 5,000,000 NFS points in the PlayStation 2 release.

The F1 in both releases has the highest top speed (240 mph) out of every car. It also has a competitive acceleration and good controllability. However, the McLaren F1 LM is capable of higher cornering speeds.

Need for Speed: ProStreet

The car is only available in the downloadable Booster pack for the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 releases of Need for Speed: ProStreet.

The F1 is one of the fastest cars in Need for Speed: ProStreet due to a high top speed and acceleration, yet still maintains a controllable steering. Once upgraded with stage 4 performance parts, it can outperform most cars in the game in Grip and Speed events. Despite being rear wheel drive, it remains responsive whilst turning at high speeds with such a setup.

Need for Speed: Undercover

The McLaren F1 is featured in Need for Speed: Undercover as a tier 1 vehicle with a price tag of $290,000. It is unlocked upon reaching Wheelman Level 13.5, but is unavailable in the PlayStation 2 and Nintendo Wii releases.

It is featured in the Job event Rocket Ride. The F1 is an average tier 1 car, but is a very competitive car when upgraded with the best parts available. Top speed is 245 mph (394 km/h).

Need for Speed: Shift

The McLaren F1 appears in Need for Speed: Shift as a tier 4 car with a price tag of $850,000 and 15.50 car rating. It is unlocked upon the player earning 180 stars.

In comparison to other tier 4 cars, the F1 has a decent acceleration and high top speed. The F1 has good grip but is prone to oversteer. Nevertheless, it is on a par with all-wheel drive cars such as the Lamborghini Reventón in corners.

Need for Speed: World

The McLaren F1 was made available in Need for Speed: World on November 16th, 2012 as an S class vehicle.

In terms of performance, the F1 Elite is almost similar to the Pagani Zonda Cinque, making it significantly faster than other Elite cars and most Class S competitors. Its acceleration is somewhat slower than the Cinque's, but counts as the second fastest in the game. The F1 also possesses a powerful nitrous boost. Its steering is very responsive and stable. It allows the F1 to achieve the arguably highest cornering speeds within Class S. Top speed is 225 mph (362 km/h).

The exterior of the F1 Elite was designed as an evolution of the original McLaren F1 and was created to be the "ultimate evolution of the ultimate drivers car." It bears a strong resemblance to GT1 race cars such as the McLaren F1 GTR from the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The proportions of the car were enlarged to improve the cornering capabilities of the F1. There is also an integrated lip spoiler on the front bumper and a carbon-fibre GT rear spoiler fitted on the Elite F1 to improve downforce and thus handling.

To increase aerodynamic smoothness, the nose and tail were stretched. It was further improved with the addition of a diffuser, which replaces the exhaust tips of the car. They were instead moved to the top surface of the rear. A large roof scoop was installed on the car, too.

The F1 Elite is best suited for race events and drag races. Due to its light weight, the F1 can avoid obstacles in Pursuit Outrun with ease. However, it does not withstand collisions well.
