One of three. Seeing a McLaren F1 in person is rare enough, but to see the most rare of all, the McLaren F1 XPGT (Experimental Prototype GT) definitely tops some sort of list. McLaren had brought this F1 out at the Geneva Auto Show to showcase the new McLaren 675LT “Longtail”, as this was the prototype Longtail that McLaren needed to build for homologating the F1 GTR race car. McLaren didn’t even need to build any more F1 GT’s, but they built 2 more to satisfy their wealthy clientele, hence, one of three.

The XPGT, owned by McLaren, rarely leaves the factory. It rarely leaves Europe, so seeing it displayed at the New York Auto Show in Manhattan was just something else. It was only out in the open for a single non public day, so unfortunately, the chance to see her is gone.

You can read more on the history and story of the XPGT #056 over at the McLaren website. We were able to get some close up shots of her, check it out after the jump.
