The first of only seven McLaren F1s to be registered in the U.S. is heading to auction.
Set to be sold at the upcoming Bonhams Quail Lodge Auction on August 18 during the 2017 Monterey Car Week, this particular McLaren F1 will likely fetch over $10 million. Although it’s number 044 of a total 64 road-legal F1s ever built, it was the 37th car off the assembly line according to the Bonhams listing. The exterior features its original silver paint while the inside boasts a black/gray Connolly leather interior. It has been well-maintained and other than normal wear items and a fuel cell that has been replaced twice, the F1 is entirely original with 9,600 miles on the odometer.

Powering the street-legal McLaren F1 is a 6.1-liter V12 engine sourced from BMW, generating 627 horsepower while paired to a six-speed manual transmission. With a zero-to-60 mph time of 3.2 seconds, this McLaren F1 can keep up with today’s supercars, despite being over 20-years old.
The winning bidder will also receive the car’s original tool kit, the modem used to connect to the factory, full luggage set, 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 major, original components that were removed from the car during services like the fuel cell and tires.
