Is the standard McLaren F1 too common for you? The F1 GT may be the answer to your problem, as just three were produced as Le Mans homologation specials. As the briefest glance will tell you, the primary change from regular (“short-tail”) F1 to the GT variant is the long tail and improved aerodynamics. That’s because the F1 was originally intended not to race, but rather to be the ultimate road-going supercar. It accomplished that in spades, but when it was finally decided to race the F1 at Le Mans, testing showed that to achieve the high speeds required and to be competitive, the GT would require the aerodynamic improvements. The Le Mans variant was known as the GTR, and it managed to secure second and third place at the 1997 race, proving that the modification program was largely a success. The road-going version was also a success from an enthusiast’s standpoint—an incredibly rare version of an already superlative car—perhaps the closest a lucky driver can come to taking one of McLaren’s incredible race cars out onto a public road. Or, more appropriately, a track with a straight long enough to explore the F1 GT’s top speed, if you dare.
— Official description [1]

The 1997 McLaren F1 GT is a RWD supercar by McLaren featured in all main series titles since Forza Motorsport 2 except for Forza Motorsport 5.

It is featured in Forza Horizon 2 as part of the Playground Select Car Pack and as VIP Membership content in Forza Motorsport 6.

Synopsis

The F1 GT was the last homologation special version of the McLaren F1 GTR race car, which in turn was based on the McLaren F1 road-going supercar.[2]

The F1 GT retains the 6.1 liter (6,064 cc) naturally aspirated V12 engine from the F1, the BMW S70/2, with identical power and torque specifications. In Xbox One generation titles however, it is featured with 618 hp (461 kW), the correct brake horsepower output, as opposed to the F1, which incorrectly still has the metric 627 hp (468 kW) as brake horsepower output.

Performance

The F1 GT has notably quicker acceleration from 0 to 100 mph (161 km/h) than the F1, requiring 6.9 seconds which is 0.8 seconds less than the latter. Top speed in Xbox One generation titles is 226 mph (364 km/h), making the F1 GT slower than the F1, which tops out at 241 mph (388 km/h).

In Forza Horizon 4, a fully upgraded F1 GT with a drag tune consisting of Drag Tire Compound, an AWD Drivetrain and a Twin Turbo aspiration can complete a quarter mile drag race in around seven seconds, making it one of the fastest drag cars in the game.[3]
