Forza Horizon 4 McLaren F1 GT supercar: Watch for help with tuning, setups, how to unlock, AWD vs RWD, handling characteristics and more in part two of my Ben VS Goliath video series.

In my nerdy quest to get around the Goliath road race, Forza Horizon 4‘s longest and most gruelling test, I put away the brilliant Maserati MC12 FE to give another highly expensive car a go. This time, it’s the McLaren F1 GT.

Costing 5,200,000 credits, the McLaren F1 GT costs just under a third of the price of Edinburgh Castle (in-game). But it is considerably more fun, especially as it tops out at around 271mph and is one of the fastest accelerating drag cars you can currently buy.

Not only that, it handles rather well in AWD and RWD formats, although the latter is less of a handful around the 24.6-mile Goliath road race and still happy to oversteer with the ‘right’ tune. A reasonable example of that is the one I show in the video above and the one you can either input the values yourself or search for my tune using the details below.

I had high hopes the McLaren F1 GT would get close to the Maserati MC12 FE and it does, but the effort to tame it has been much greater.

It is, therefore, less effective but then it can be a drag racing beast, has a roof scoop and you sit in the middle – just like in the standard McLaren F1. That added versatility helps justify the cost, it must be said.

Like with part one of my Ben VS Goliath series, which featured the Maserati MC12 FE, feel free to suggest how my setup can be improved and provide any feedback on how it drives. I am still building up my expertise.

Please remember that tuning is more than just making a car fast, it is also about making something drive in a way that makes you feel confident and suits your style. So what works for me may not work for you.

With that said, hopefully you find my video useful. If so, please be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel, A Tribe Called Cars, and stay tuned for more!
