Visit the motor show at 61 Park Lane, W1? It is a smaller, more selective display than The British International Motor Show '94 at the NEC in Birmingham: it contains just one car. But that car is the McLaren F1, the most expensive (pounds 540,000 plus VAT) and fastest (231mph) production model in the world. The silver coupe is a three-seater: the driver sits in what looks like a child's safety seat, with a passenger on either side. Just behind them is the beautiful 627bhp V12 engine, built by BMW. McLaren's tiny showroom, seemingly (and inexplicably) modelled on a slate mine, is open 10am-7pm Monday-Friday, 10am-5pm on Saturday.

The receptionist is pleasant and helpful, even to time-wasters.
