What we have here is a McLaren F1 like no other. It’s clocked just 239km (148 miles), effectively meaning it’s covered delivery mileage only. It was never registered by its single owner, and is still wearing its factory protective wrapping. Oh, and it includes all the original accessories including the tool chest and luggage set.
This 1997 example is finished in Dandelion Yellow, while on the inside you’ll find a dark grey interior with contrasting yellow inserts on the driver’s seat. Gordon Murray’s signature is hand-painted on the body, and you get a spare, LM-style exhaust and a GT R steering wheel along with the deal.
This is the closest thing to a new McLaren F1 in existence, and it’s up for sale at specialist dealer Tom Hartley Jnr. It’s listed - as you’d probably expect - as ‘£POA’, but this will almost certainly become the most expensive F1 ever sold, exceeding the current record of $15.62 million.
All of this makes us a little sad. The McLaren F1 is one of the greatest driving machines ever built, and one of the 64 produced has sat for most of its 20 years on Planet Earth doing nothing. Never turning a wheel in anger. Not once hitting the 7500rpm red line of its BMW-derived V12.
There is of course hope that the next owner decides “screw that” and uses this car in a way that’s fit and proper, but we can’t help but assume its factory fresh condition will continue to be preserved.
Any super rich people out there want to prove us wrong?
