F1 = no real race car, with race car price tag, to show the world that McLaren can build a road going supercar, that wants to be a race car thought. The reason McLaren had to, is that only racing pilots (very few people) actually race or can drive race cars . . . so its cool and important to build such a pointless car, because the average creativity of the public is not big enough to imagine how the race cars they see on TV could look on a street. . . . industry and world benefit equaled zero, only the poster industry in the UK had again a car to print for the dreamers.
GTR = Japanese automobile industry prodigy, showing that hight tech can be made available for the wide public, making the car it self purpose full and actually allowing the industry to advance. GTR legacy is real, everyday business and no pointless poster illusion.
