McLaren F1 Can be Yours for Less than $16 Million

Few cars are held in as high regard as the McLaren F1 supercar from the 1990s.

Way ahead of its time, it used F1 technology, a carbon-fibre monocoque chassis and a fearsome 6.1-litre V12 engine that made it the fastest road car in the world – a record it held for no less than seven years.

Just 106 were ever built between 1992 and 1998 and only 64 were designated road cars. All of these were tailored to the customer’s order and cost each lucky owner between £550,000 and £650,000.

Today, pristine examples are worth more than 20 times that – and this unused version looks like it could smash the record fee paid for one.

Dandelion dazzler: This bright yellow Mclaren F1 has never been registered for road use in its 20 year history, making it the most pristine example in existence today

Factory wrapped: How unused is the car? It still has the protective covers it left the Woking production line with 20 years ago

The Dandelion Yellow 1997 version seen here was originally delivered to Japan and has barely moved since.

It’s never been driven on the road – not even registered to be used on the public highway – and has covered just 148 miles, all of which were covered by McLaren to ensure everything worked perfectly before shipping the car to the owner.

Now it’s back in the UK and being sold by a supercar specialist for a undisclosed fee – though recent sales suggest it should be worth around £12million.

How box fresh is it? Photos listed by Derbyshire luxury car dealer Tom Hartley Jnr show it still has the protective plastic covers over the interior that have been there since the car left the Woking production line 20 years ago.
