Most of you are intimately familiar with McLaren F1, but you may not have heard about a certain variant of the British hyper car, called HDK. That stands for High Downforce Kit, which means the F1 fitted with this kit look and perform substantially different than normal models.

Thanks to the aero kit it is rocking, McLaren F1 HDK looks a lot cooler than normal models. There are only three HDKs in the world, each of them worth these days well above $10 million USD.

The McLaren F1 HDK features a carbon front splitter, flared wheel arches, rear spoiler, and on this example at least, matte black wheels and accents. The exact details of the F1 HDK is unknown, as each of the three production units are probably bespoke to their owners. But the name tells you this version of the F1 was designed for handling and track work. So they are probably not as fast as the 386 km/h standard version in terms of top speed.

This McLaren F1 HDK is apparently regularly used by its owner and appears to have a couple of dents and scratches on it. That is really cool!
