The F1 GTR Longtail served as an inspiration for some of today’s best McLaren products like the McLaren 675 LT (LT which stands for Longtail) – the naming actually goes back to the racing days of McLaren, when they needed to up their game during endurance racing.

The F1 GTR Longtail is around 135 kg lighter with special bodywork and the infamous stretched rear with the huge spoiler.
