Get out your checkbook and start writing zeros now. McLaren is selling an F1 street car, chassis no. 069, with just 2,800 miles from its McLaren Special Operations Heritage division. The company is selling the car on behalf of a private owner.
Only 64 road-going examples were built between 1993 and 1998, and this one is in concours condition, says McLaren. It was hand built in Woking, England and has since been refreshed by the company’s Heritage division.
The centrally driven F1 supercar, nay, hypercar, was designed by the legendary Gordon Murray and sports a BMW-built, 6.1-liter V12 making somewhere in the realm of 627 hp. Top speed is a ludicrous 242.8 mph.
This one is painted in carbon black, and gets a dark finish on the 17-inch magnesium wheels. The driver’s seat is black and red leather, while the two passenger seats get alcantara.
A precursor of vertical doors to come.
McLaren says the car is UK registered and will come with fitted luggage, a complete Facom titanium lightweight tool kit and toolbox, all books and literature and a limited-edition F1 owner’s watch.
Like we said, get your checkbook, or more likely, call your money guy and let him know you’ll probably need more than seven figures to take home this bad boy. One just sold last year at Sotheby’s for $13.75 million. He’s driving his around town, by the way. Yours should probably be stored.
