McLaren made just a handful of GTR Long Tail models, each a far cry away from the original road-going design. Since their creation, exactly three Long Tail GTRs have been converted by Lanzante to road-legal spec, allowing them to be driven on the streets.
But just because these F1s have been converted to street use, doesn't mean they're no longer useful on track—judging by this video, anyway.
The YouTube channel captured McLaren F1 chassis number 19R—the original GTR Long Tail development car—getting hammered around the iconic Spa Francorchamps racetrack in Belgium, spinning tires and shooting flames.
This is the same car Kenny Bräck used to set a blistering 47-second time going up the hill at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, crossing the finish line at an insane 130 mph. For some context, Bräck's time was less than a second off a brand new P1 GTR's time up the same hill. This car is seriously capable, even to this day.
Watch (and listen) for yourself as it tears through a set of tires.
