Jalopnik has a fascinating story on how McLaren is keeping its F1 model alive, thanks to a 20 years old pc.

Not something that you would expect from such a technology giant, but it definitely shows commitment to keep the myth alive. After all there are only about 100 of these cars still alive, each worth north of $10 million.

I’ve also recently discovered that the model pictured in the article is currently being restored down the road from where my office is.

McLaren Special Operations is a workshop like no other. It’s located in an industrial complex a few minutes from their well known Technology- and Production Center in Woking, England, in a building where McLaren used to work on its Formula One racing efforts before deciding to give it a go against Ferrari on the streets as well.

I hope to get a glimpse of this amazing car next time around.
