I never really liked the car and from what most people who drove them say it was a twitchy car and you couldnt use the full power. I would rather have a SLR & Porsche CGT & F430 & lambo instead of 1 Mclaren F1.

RE: 1994 McLaren F1 for sale

There is no better adrenaline injection, than driving twice the speed of the rest of the traffic and have somebody cut in your line with 60 feet to spare. [:p]
About cupholders I have real story. I ordered our ML just days after the model hit the market. Months later, when picking it up the salesman took over an hour to walk us thru and told us the story. At the time ML was the only vehicle on the market with computerized traction control and ESP, not to mention other stuff that put it several steps over the competition.
So our salesman had a visit from a lady shopping around for new family vehicle. She took close look at the ML and finally approached the salesman with the question "How many cupholders that car has?".
Salesman count in his mind and answered, that there is total of 4.
The lady figured out, that this is not enough and left the showroom.

Funny you should mention this, that is the first thing my wife looks at in a vehicle. mainly for my daughter. In her professional opinion 4 is enough for a family of 3.
