McLaren GTR Long Tail McLaren F1 GTR, chassis number 27R was built for David Morrison, owner of Parabolica Motorsport at the end of 1996 for the 1997 FIA GT Series. It was the last customer car sold of six for the 1997 season, three Gulf cars, two Schnitzer cars and 27R, the Parabolica car. The team planned to compete in the British GT Championship in 1997 and at the first round at Silverstone the team was totally dominant. Drivers Chris Goodwin and Gary Ayles destroyed the whole field, winning by over a lap. McLaren F1 GTR, chassis 27R becoming the first long tail car to win a race in history.

Parabolica’s victory was so easy that the team changed its plans immediately and entered the FIA GT Championship instead. The first race was again at Silverstone and again Goodwin and Ayles were dominant in 27R. At half distance the pair were leading the race but luck was not on their side. Just after their last pitstop with other front runners still out, the race was red flagged, dropping 27R to sixth place and robbing them of a certain podium and probable victory. 27R was the only privateer car to lead a race during the 1997 season. Chris Goodwin considers McLaren F1 GTR Long Tail, chassis 27R to be the most striking liveried F1s of all time – in all its guises. The black and pink colours that Team Lark ran the car in at the 1997 Le Mans 24 Hours, the yellow and blue Warsteiner colours it ran in that year’s FIA GT Championship and finally, and most strikingly the livery in which it remains to this day – the Verve Cliquot, McLaren Papaya Orange.

27R is in perfect condition and is ready to be entered in some of the most important events around the world. The car has been a regular at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, and would make an important addition to any collection. The car would be a race winner in the right hands in the GT 90 Championship. McLaren F1 GTR 27R comes complete with a comprehensive spares package which includes assorted bodywork, various gear ratios and transmission parts, driveshafts, axles and other drive train spares. Dampers, wishbones, springs, rockers, struts and anti roll bars. Brake callipers, discs, mounting bells and pads, and various engine spares including cam cover, flywheel damper and con rods. To this day there is nothing to match the sophistication of the McLaren F1 – It is the ultimate modern supercar. Just one hundred cars were built and of these only twenty-eight were F1 GTRs.

When ‘Octane’ magazine asked 50 ‘players’ in the historic car world what was their all time favourite car, the McLaren F1 was practically the default choice. Octane’s January 2009 edition has the headline on the cover, “£2.5 million McLaren F1 Is this the new 250 GTO?” Their editorial states, “…it was left to the showroom-fresh McLaren F1 to astonish everyone by doubling its pre-sale estimate with a final bid of £2,530,000. ‘The new Ferrari GTO’ was the buzz around the room.”

A McLaren F1 is a very rare car to come to market – the few owners lucky enough to have one of these iconic supercars cherish them too much. Recent market trends prove that McLaren F1, 27R is not only an important and historically significant racing car, being the first Long Tail GTR to win a race, but that it is also a blue chip investment.
Chris Goodwin, McLaren Automotive’s Chief Test Driver said of this car. “I have driven most of McLaren’s Formula 1 cars and all the road cars and 27R still ranks alongside Senna’s 93 F1 car as the best car I have ever driven.”
