How much downforce does a McLaren F1 produce?

5 Answers

I don't think they ever gave down force numbers. There was a high down force mode but no specs given as far as I know. Original press release had nothing. detail-of-the-incredible-v12/page/0/14

Thanks gurus. Yeah, I've scoured everywhere unable to find any actual numbers. I know of the many editions of the F1 but I was wondering if there were ever any solid numbers released as to how much downforce the original, plane Jane F1 had. The more this info evades me, the more curious I get!

I am in the same left coast boat. A bit of trivia. 40 some years ago Fox wanted to open up a warehouse/distribution center in my county. The county government told them to pound sand. Jobs? We don't need no stink'n jobs.
