Attached Image It has been 25 years since the since the birth of the McLaren F1 and the company has released a video of how it managed to break the speed record back in 1998.

Featuring Le Mans winner Andy Wallace, who is also the guy behind the wheel of the record-breaking top speed run, the film shows us how it was like as both man and machine managed a peak speed of 391km/h.

The record remained unbeaten until 2007, almost 10 years later. Then the Bugatti Veyron came along and did a 408km/h record at the same venue in the same Ehra-Lessien proving ground in Germany.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?
