A McLaren F1 – chassis #069 – with only 2,800 miles is being sold by McLaren’s MSO complete with all original accessories. It’ll cost at least £10 million.
There were only 64 true McLaren F1 road cars built, plus just five F1 LMs, and the prices have risen inexorably in recent years, with even Rowan Atkinson’s McLaren F1 – with a history of two expensive crashes and 41,000 miles on the clock – being offered at £8 million.
So this McLaren F1 – chassis #069, and the 60th car to be built – with just 2,800 miles on the clock is likely to cost whoever has deep enough pockets the wrong side of £10 million to acquire.
It’s being sold for a client by McLaren’s Special Operations Division (MSO) and has been carefully titivated to make it appealing, with (what we think was originally silver) bodywork finished in Carbon Black, a non-standard stealth finish for the 17″ alloys and an interior re-trimmed with black and red leather for the driver’s seat and black Alcantara for the two passenger seats.
The car also comes with the original accessories, which include a complete Falcom titanium tool kit, the Driving ambition book, all the owners handbooks and the Tag Heuer McLaren F1 watch.
It looks like #069 is now more or less a standard F1, but it did come with McLaren’s high downforce kit and an interior from the LM, both of which now seem to be gone, and has had an interesting history including being ‘illegally’ imported in to the USA.
If you have deep enough pockets – and a desire for perhaps the greatest car ever made – you can email McLaren’s MSO for more information.
But we’re pretty sure they’ll be wanting at least £10m, and the ongoing costs of looking after an F1 are huge.
