Pennsylvania now home to first McLaren F1 service center in US

It might seem out of the way, but it's better than shipping your car to the UK.

McLaren announced this week that it has opened its North American McLaren F1 Service Center, located at "a remote site" in Pennsylvania.

It is only the second authorized F1 service facility outside of the UK.

The car requires an annual service that includes a full inspection of the suspension, along with your standard fluid and filter swaps.

There's also a "shakedown" component that'll have your car blasting down a test track or closed runway in order to ensure the car performs as expected.

Every other annual inspection also requires a full brake service, vehicle alignment, air-conditioning and coolant services.

Every five years, McLaren will want to replace the fuel tank, which is a laborious task that requires the removal of the entire powertrain (seen here).

The car's value is somewhere in the seven- to eight-figure range, so it's worth it, I'd venture.

This won't be the only McLaren F1 service center in the US. McLaren claims a second one, located on the west coast, will come online "in the future."

McLaren never actually imported the F1 to the United States when it was originally on sale, but the company believes there are approximately 20 of 'em in the US.
