See the pics of some of McLaren's most famous cars, as well as what goes on behind the scenes
2 October 2009

Autocar has gone behind the scenes at McLaren's Technology Centre in Woking to see what it takes to build a successful Formula One team.

As well as designing, engineering and developing its multi-million pound racers, the centre also hosts some of the firm's historic race cars and the production line for the McLaren-Mercedes SLR.

See the hi-res McLaren special picture gallery

The trip, which was organised by McLaren's technology partner Mobil 1, gave us the chance to look through our archives to bring you hi-res pictures of some of McLaren's most iconic race cars, as well as the McLaren F1 and new McLaren MP4-12C.

Also in the gallery are captioned pictures of the Technology Centre itself and an inisight into how the team prepare for a race.

I'm feeling a bit disappointed. I was expecting more.. more technical stuff, pictures of vehicles being assembled, the actual production lines. Not "The F1 is assembled up the corridor". Try harder please.

Fred , you must be a hard person to please, there were enough pictures to satisfy most peoples tastes, i personally liked to see the le-mans cars and the 80's/90's F1 cars and the final picture of Aryton Senna was a perfect photo to end the montage,like i said, something for everyone, i think.

Picture 14's caption says that most of the SLR's were LHD.

I may be wrong but i thought ALL the SLR's were LHD.

Peter, you're right. However, the majority of those pics weren't there when I made my initial post. So either I was premature, or Autocar listened to my grumble. Either way, it is now an excellent collection, so Thank You to Autocar!.
