The team also produced tiny volumes of an extremely expensive road-going car known as the "McLaren F1", priced at $1million. BMW was commissioned to design and build the car's engine, a 6.1-litre V12 producing 627 bhp. A three-seater with an unusual central driving position, the F1 is one of the fastest production cars ever made, with an independently measured top speed of over 360 km/h (225 mph). The only other comparable vehicle is the Bugatti EB110.
Recently the team has affiliated itself with Mercedes-Benz and will soon start production on another limited edition supercar, the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren.
The McLaren F1 team we know today resulted from a merger of the McLaren team and Ron Dennis' personal F1 team Project 4. This is the reason why current McLaren F1 cars are designated M/P4-xx.
