    I think they have more than 1 person working for them...

    It's a Top Gear video. I have it on Kazaa.

    Bassicly they show a number of engineers molding carbon fiber to the shape of the McLaren and fitting all the parts together. A sight to behold, it was.

    like most exotics, if your buy a mclaren F1 u get your own personal mechanic who will rebuild your engine annually beleive it or not..

    like WTF would an average mechanic do if u brought that car to his shop??? , he'd stand ther scratching his balls thats what

    and if u buy a ferrari, u get a nifty leather coat!!!

    i've seen that video, the funniest part is when he is driving on the track man....his voice goes all high and while he is driving its like hes having an orgasm or something hahahaha

    i guess thats how it feels to drive such a wicked car
