A rare road-legal McLaren F1 GTR Longtail was filmed and photographed near a pub in Chertsey, UK.

McLaren built only 106 units of its iconic F1 supercar and only 28 of them were developed for racing in the FIA GT series or at Le Mans. Of those 28 cars, only 10 of them were built in the Longtail specification and now one of them has been spotted in United Kingdom. We did a little bit of digging and managed to find out it's actually the first F1 GTR Longtail built and has the 19R chassis. It is the same car which was driven at last year's Goodwood Festival of Speed and belongs to a UK owner.

The car was manufactured before the 1997 racing season and initially was only used for promotional purposes before being raced in August 1997 by Japanese Team LARK. It came back on the track in 1999 and continued to race until the 2005 season before being sold to someone in United States. The current owner from UK restored the original paint scheme and converted it for road use.
