McLaren is probably best known for the F1, a supercar it created in the 1990s. Some still say it’s the best car ever made. But the British automaker was originally founded back in the 1960s by race car driver Bruce McLaren, a New Zealander, and the company’s machines have been winning races all over the world ever since.
About 10 years ago, after a long hiatus from street-legal vehicles, McLaren began building its own exotic sports cars again, and today it offers a full line of powerful mid-engine two-seaters. One of its most extreme is the 2020 McLaren 600LT, a track-ready 592-horsepower monster that can reach 60 mph in less than 3 seconds. It’s one of the fastest, most exclusive cars on the road and it competes with a handful of other mid-engine supercars such as the Ferrari 488, Lamborghini Huracan Evo, Acura NSX, and Audi R8.
