Crank up the sound for this one, and enjoy one of the all-time great engines running flat out.

Monterey Car Week is home to some of the rarest, most expensive metal on earth. A lot of that metal sits still, shining under the Californian sun as judges go over it with a fine-tooth comb, searching for anything that might make them less than perfect.

Along with the stationary display, though, some (crazy or wonderful, depending on your perspective) owners let their cars loose on Laguna Seca, treating spectators to a rare look at their priceless vehicles.

This year, one of those vehicles is the McLaren F1 GTR – with Mika Hakkinen behind the wheel, no less. There's not much more to be said. Crank up the sound, and enjoy that BMW V12 at full noise.
