One of only seven McLaren F1s ever registered in the U.S. just sold at auction for a ton of money.
The final bid price was $14.2-million, but the price includes a 10-percent buyer’s fee, making the grand total an impressive $15.62-million. The car was offered by its original owner and despite being a 1995 model car, it’s in amazing condition. The owner also included all the car’s service records, including one that just happened last month. According to the Bonhams’ listing, the F1 is entirely original and has just 9,600 miles on the odometer.
A BMW-sourced V12 that outputs 627 horsepower is what powers the McLaren F1. There’s a six-speed manual transmission mated to the engine, allowing it to go zero to 62 mph in 3.2 seconds.
The winning bidder also receives the car’s original tool kit, a full luggage set, the modem used to connect to the factory, a special Limited Edition of Doug Nye’s opus, Driving Ambition: The Complete Story of the McLaren F1, the F1 Auto Glym detailing kit, complete tool roll, mechanics gloves, detailing cloth, car cover, watch, owners books and manuals, an assortment of factory documents and materials and all the major, original components that were removed from the F1 during service.
