Nothing that wasn't supposed to go wrong has gone wrong. In other words, only wear items have been replaced!
This car can flat-out fly down the highway. It's an absolute rush! It's a little claustrophobic on the inside, but otherwise it is quite comfortable.
The handling is superb. I've able to toss it to and fro without the slightest hint of losing control.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

1998 McLaren F1 V12
If you can afford one, GET ONE!
No major problems other than standard wear due to hard running.
I am a collector of fine autos and anyone who is a serious speed freak or big time collector of rare autos must have one. Believe me every penny spent on this baby is worth it. I own several "SUPER CARS" and no doubt there is nothing like owning a McLaren.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

There's a difference between your MAZDA RX7 and a MCLAREN F1, even if your car could beat it, which is so unlikely I can't believe I'm bothering to write this, I'd still be in an F1 and you'd still be in a Mazda...

The McLaren is a good car, but very expensive. You could take any Japanese super car (eg Supra, NSX, RX7, 300ZX, 3000GT, GT-R) or super sedan (Aristo, mark II Tourer V, Gloria Ultima), tune it enough to beat a Mclaren F1 not just by a whisker, but convincingly, and still have change left from $100,000. If you went really crazy (like they do in Japan) you could drop another 100g's and have a car so wild Mclarens would run in fear! Up to you which is important - status or power.
