Default Saw another McLaren today

So i saw my second McLaren F1 today... too bad it wasnt as cool as the first time.. this one was in the museum as part of a special exibit of a few cars owned by Ralph Lauren.. My first real experience with these cars i was driving home one night on the highway and saw something odd.. a car i didnt recognize.. so i caught up to it, saw that it was a McLaren and then he prompty downshifted and was GONE within seconds.. it was amazing...

this is the best i could do with the camera phone...

i stood and stared for atleast 10 minutes without blinking looking at the McLaren
