This Is The Most Immaculate McLaren F1 We've Ever Seen

For Sale / 16 Comments

You're looking at the lowest mileage McLaren F1 in the world. It's never been driven or registered.

The legendary McLaren F1 needs no introduction. It was one of the defining hypercars of the 1990s, boasting a record-breaking 240 mph top speed that made it the fastest production car in the world for nearly a decade before the Bugatti Veyron beat it. Its legacy still lives on, as McLaren's upcoming BP23 Hyper-GT will adopt a similar central driving position as the F1. Only 64 road-going McLaren F1s rolled off the production line between 1992 and 1998, with famous owners including Rowan Atkinson, which makes it a very rare gem.

This McLaren F1 currently for sale at UK dealer Tom Hartley, however, is by far the most immaculate example we've ever seen. What makes this specific McLaren F1 so special? Chassis number 60 of 64 is the lowest mileage McLaren F1 in the world, with only 148 miles on the clock. And those miles were all accrued by McLaren during pre-delivery tests, which means it's never been driven since it was delivered in 1997. Its owner never even registered it, and the entire interior still has the original factory protective wrapping. It really is in like-new condition. All of the original gold-plated titanium tools and leather-cased owners handbooks are also included.

The full luggage set is still in factory protective wrapping, and a Facom tool chest and a set of spare keys are also included as well as a rare unused TAG Heuer watch with the chassis number engraved on the face, which is probably considered a collectors item in itself. Additionally, the F1 was originally ordered with a slew of special features such as an LM-style spare exhaust and an additional GTR style steering wheel with a central F1 logo painted in yellow to match the exterior. Other special features include a removable steering wheel finished in suede, a carbon driver's seat with F1 logo, yellow insert straps on the driver's seat, and the hand-painted signature of F1 designer Gordon Murray on the body.

There's no list price, predictably. Recently, the first McLaren F1 imported to the US sold for a staggering $15.62 million which is currently the most expensive F1 that's ever been sold. But that car had 9,600 miles on the clock, so we suspect this like-new example will beat that record by a significant margin. This is a rare opportunity to own the most well-preserved example of one of the most important road cars in history.
