1998 McLaren F1 V12 from North America
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.
