There are some rare treasures on this planet we should dedicate ourselves to preserving with our best effort. The McLaren F1 supercar falls into that category, which is why McLaren Special Operations (MSO) started the new F1 Certified Program.
The stellar service is meant to protect the originality and functionality of the F1 supercar and it’s available to all owners of the legendary model. To kick things off, the MSO F1 Certified Program unveiled a rebuilt F1 GTR Longtail that competed at Le Mans in 1997. It took the talented MSO team 18 hard months to fully restore the 25R F1 GTR so that it could be showcased at the Hampton Court Concours of Elegance. Only new, old-stock GTR parts stored in containers at McLaren’s factory were used. The team made sure the F1 GTR has the exact same specification and livery it had when it was fresh on the track in 1997. McLaren F1 owners who decide to have their supercars restored via the F1 Certified Program will receive a unique Certificate of Authenticity, along with a bespoke illustrated book that documents the history of their car. All 106 McLaren F1s built between 1993 and 1998 are eligible.
