While a McLaren may never surpass the price of a rare Ferrari at auction, a 1995 McLaren F1 could fetch as much as $14 million. The current record holder for most expensive car sold at auction is a 1963 Ferrari 250 GTO racer, which changed hands for the tiny sum of $52 million USD. Is a McLaren F1 worth multiple millions? Is anyone else struggling with the fact that a 1995 vehicle is already 20 years old?
This example is dressed in Marlboro white. It is believed to be the only one in this color.
The auction is set to go down at the annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Gooding & Company anticipates that the McLaren will bring in the lofty sum for a few different reasons. It is the only Marlboro white example known and has had just three owners. The nice lady comes complete with its original manual, tool kit and signature luggage set—all with just 1,004 miles on the odometer.
Profile of the 1995 McLaren F1. This one does not sport the spoiler.
This 1995 McLaren F1 racer is powered by a 6.0-liter juicy V12 capable of producing thrust and speed. The final product kicks forth an impressive 627 horsepower. McLaren treated the car to complete restorative services in 2008 to refresh all the things that time had touched. Even though there are barely any miles on her, time alone leads to necessary replacements. The buyer will be getting a timeless collector car that would add interest to any fleet—but how much will be parted with for the privilege remains to be seen.
McLaren F1 cars demand a high price…but will $14 million set the new standard for certain models?
