The McLaren F1 GTR will forever be one of the most revered supercars ever made. First debuting in 1995, the McLaren F1 GTR is still every bit as impressive today as it was two decades ago, and in some gear head circles it remains the most important super car in history. That said, it now has some in-house competition from it’s brother, the McLaren P1 GTR.
As sort of a ‘super car debutante ball’ McLaren put its two most impressive cars together on the track, pitting super car against super car in a battle for the ages. But as I’m watching this video all I can think of is ‘they should really grab these sound bytes for a Lion King sequel’, because these two cars sound like lions roaring at one another in a display of dominance.
