      Not sure if you had a chance to check the mail today Barry but my copy of the Pebble Beach Insider arrived with a familiar looking car on the cover.

      Someone put eyes on 7 of the 9 (...or 10) F1s they originally acquired back in 2009 and shared information from their visit.

      Originally Brunei got 002, 004 (possibly), 005, 008, 014, GTR 09R,...

      Chassis 001 is, if you lined them up in order by chassis number, the first production car. However, it was not the first car completed, nor was it the first production car completed. Two other road...

      Since the 'Can you name them all?" game is always fun:

      Front and center is 061 - familiar to many as Rowan Atkinson's F1.

      The GTR line to the right is made up of 06R, 02R, 12R, and 03R.

      It's really a fair question - lots of instances of people talking out their backsides on the internet. I do try my best to present the most accurate and current info I can obtain, and while I am...

      Exactly - it's quite an awkward size and even if you got close at the rear you still need to find a tire that is offered in a size matching size what is need at the front.

      Here are the tires that...

      That's got to be 048 you are asking about and you will find that it's color name is a rather literal and fairly uninspiring "Brilliant Metallic Blue". Not certain if it was painted to match...

      Not clear to many people, but in the sizes the F1 requires no one makes any other types of tires. There is exactly one type of tire produced in the proper sizes for the 17" wheels worn by the...

      Hey - careful not to oversell it man. ;) :D

      Thanks :)

      I do wish this thread had been started a few days later, only featuring great content from another fabulous Tour for the owners, but it is what it is and thankfully the news isn't as...

      The event it was participating in is supported by McLaren - all of the black shirted gentlemen pulling the cover over the car are employees of the company.

      I had an hour-long Viber call with a participant at the event yesterday afternoon - nighttime in Italy - as well as a long message chat with another person who was one of the first on scene. Also had...

      Some "real" photographers are present by invitation, some others have discovered the event on their own and traveled there, but all have been asked to hold their photos until the event is completed....

      So for starters, and this irks me more than the crash - the F1 is not "Project 8". The matching 12C built for the same owner by McLaren Special Operations is called "Bespoke Project 8" - the F1...

      You are correct. Fun fact most people don't know is there are paddles behind the steering wheel of every McLaren F1 road car to actuate those functions. A bit if glare on the windscreen in this photo...

      Potentially yes, it all could come crashing down. However there's a lot of support for values being what they are if you look at where wealthy people are putting their money these days. The problem...
