Anyoen on this board driven one, own(ed) on, or even know someone that does?

Not sure about owners, but there are a few people here who have driven them and probably a similar amount who know someone who owns one.
Sadly, I've never owned one, don't know anyone who owns one and have never driven one.
I know Peleton25 has driven in one. I've only seen one, that was #068 at the Park Lane showroom. I was on a double decker tour bus and saw a black 360 in the distance. I kept watching it until I saw that showroom. My attention immediately changed and I was seriously freaking out. I got off the bus asap and was speed walking to the showroom (didn't want to run and make people think some middle-eastern dude was doing something wrong. jk ).
#065. 068 was never at the showroom
I know of a certain user who almost bought one, but I will retain his privacy until/unless he decides to reveal himself
I drive one all the time in PGR2 on X-box.
there is a fchatter who did own one
Audiguy got to drive one for three days.

Armen sorta did. One (#045) went through his dealership. Its now in NY next to another McLaren.
I think Jim got a ride in one (XP3 i think)

I'm also a post whore, not an attention whore.

i have never driven it but the owner(costumer of ours) has taken me for a lot of rides in the car
TEAK360 has driven the one PELETON25 got a ride in
An F-Chatter was bidding on a yellow one on ebay not long ago.
Yea, yea, I know...I was too lazy to edit it. Here's me saying it back in August, post 7: http://www.mclarenfreak.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=8&st=0&#entry8
It's a shame the McLaren F1 isn't even in PGR2...
Sorry PGR3 and yes its a LM I know!
I know of a gentleman here in Boston who has 3 including an LM. These can be seen from time to time in the showroom of Turner Motorsports in Amesbury Mass where they are serviced. The last time I was in there, the LM was in, and I couldnt sit in it because they were afriad the rivets in my jeans would scratch the carbon fiber....
Frank has sold his LM (sold to Ralph Lauren) and one of his road cars (068). He now only has the black road car (007)
I've driven 068, and I will say there is nothing like the Mclaren F1. It is the 2nd coming of the GTO as far is being an iconic automotive symbol in my opinion. The overall design ingenuity employed, the capabilities of the car and even the fit and finish are second to no other production car.
I drove it last summer in Monterey when it only had delivery miles on it, so I was fortunate to experience what was basically a brand new car.
A couple of weeks ago I got to do a private track session in the same car and really got to experience what it was capable of. Not a real fast track, but still over 140 mph on the main straight.
To sum up the experience succinctly: I want one.
I met this girl when a friend asked me to drive them to run some errands (I had just gotten a car in college, which makes you the local chauffeur). We were back at my friend's house and there was a Car & Driver on the table. I sat down and leafed through it as we waited for my friend. I was looking at cars and the girl said, "I got to drive a McLaren F1 when I went to England." I was in shock - perhaps just because she knew what one was. Who was this cute blonde who loved cars?!?
A few months later she finally admitted that she made it up so I would talk to her. By then we were already engaged, and I suppose I've gotten her back by turning out to be a car freak for real.
Serves her right for playing with your emotions like that, congratz on getting one that can at least point out an F1 in a lineup
