Considering that the McLaren F1 is one of the most rare and exotic vehicles ever made (just over 100 were produced between 1992 and 1998), it's no surprise that the owner's manual is nothing short of a work of art. Mark Roberts, the man who hand-sketched the illustrations found in the hardcover manual given to to every McLaren F1 owner, describes his work in a new video released by McLaren. The beautifully rendered illustrations detail various aspects of operating what was the fastest production vehicle at the time. Interesting touches included a speedometer illustration set at 231 mph -- the car's record-setting top speed -- and a CD loading diagram featuring Bob Dylan's Street Legal as the soundtrack of choice. Check out the video below.
