The tool kit was made exclusively for McLaren by the French company, FACOM, as a McLaren F1’s accessory stored under a small access panel set in between the car’s front headlights.

It comes with a small, classy, black leather tool roll handmade by Golf Brothers. The McLaren F1 Tool Kit is no ordinary toolset not just because of its gold appearance; it is made of titanium instead of the usual stainless steel.
