It allows the F1 to achieve the arguably highest cornering speeds within Class S. Top speed is 225 mph (362 kmh).
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 are 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.
