The McLaren F1 must be, without a doubt, THE most amazing of amazing cars. At this point in time, October 1998, there is no better road going production car that can possibly beat the performance, design and shear extreme nature of this car. 0 - 60mph times of 3.2 seconds, a aluminum honeycomb and carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic body shell and a unique central driving position must make this a one off car that will take a long time to beat.

Costing over half a million pounds sterling, nearly one million US dollars, this car is beyond a dream, but with 627bhp and a maximum speed of over 230mph, it's one car that will make you with for that lottery win just a little bit more. Just imagine pulling up to the lights in one of these!
