Since I’ve been shooting cars over these years, the one car I’ve always wanted to see in person was legendary Mclaren F1.

To my surprise, this was 1991 Mclaren F1 belonged to none other than Jay Leno who is known to attend the Car Classic event.

The F1 is easily fits into the theme of event of form designed for function as it was once the fastest production car ever made.

The gullwing doors just add to the retro idealized vision of futuristic vehicles which I’ve always found interesting.
