“This is the scariest thing we’ve ever done here at the Jay Leno’s Garage.. taking the engine out of a McLaren F1.”

If I had to choose between one of the supercar greats, like the Porsche 959, Ferrari F40 or McLaren F1, I’d find it really hard to get past the McLaren F1. It has it all – power, looks, racing pedigree and the all important wild side that makes these cars special.

Jay Leno doesn’t have to choose. But he does have to look after his various pride and joys, and in this video he and his team take the engine out of his McLaren F1 for the first time in 20 years to give it a little bit of a once-over.

It’s an awesome unit; impressive, beautifully-engineered and looking immaculate after all this time. Check out the video below to find out more about it.
