Three different variants of the race car were developed from 1995 to 1997.
Need for Speed: High Stakes
The McLaren F1 GTR is one of the best cars in Need for Speed: High Stakes. With a top speed of 198mph, it is slower than the CLK-GTR, Ferrari F50 and the Diablo SV. But it more than makes up for it with the best handling and best acceleration in its class and the entire game.
The PC release of Need for Speed: High Stakes features the 1995 F1 GTR 'short-tail' where as the PlayStation 1 release features the 1997 F1 GTR 'long-tail' version. In both releases, it is featured as a class AAA car with the cost of $500,000, alongside the CLK-GTR.
- The McLaren F1 GTR, at one point during development, could be modified with upgrades in the PlayStaton release of Need for Speed: High Stakes, along with the Mercedes-Benz CLK-GTR. Even though the player can not modify it, A.I. opponents will appear with the upgrade when selected with another vehicle fully upgraded.
