During the 2017 "Grandes Heures Automobiles", which was held at the famous french autodrome of Linas-Montlhéry, we were lucky enough to see something quite special. And I'm not even talking about all the great cars that showed up at the event (including Porsche 917, Ferrari 250 SWB and 250 LM - and much more). It is not very often that we get to see both the mythical McLaren F1 and its little sister, the McLaren P1, together. Those kind of occasions are quite rare, to say the least.
Seeing a McLaren F1 "alone" is already quite a feat in itself, considering how secretive and discreet these type of cars have become, mainly due to their prices skyrocketing since 1992. The two siblings from Woking are in two different categories on every aspect: performance, looks, feel. Yet, they're undeniably related. And you can tell.
So we were lucky enough to see both cars. But what was quite special though, is having both of these specific cars together and reunited. Indeed, both the McLaren F1 and the McLaren P1 have the same chassis number, same owner, and obviously, the same "spec". They all have a "Genesis Blue" paintjob (the original colour on the F1), with silver rims and blue/dark interior. U don't know about you, but it's somewhere up there as far as my favorite F1s go.
