This is the 100th McLaren Speedtail built.
McLaren has come a long way in the ten years since it launched the MP4-12C, building some of the finest performance cars that give Ferrari a run for its money. Representing the pinnacle of McLaren's current lineup is the Speedtail, a spiritual successor to the McLaren F1.
Like the McLaren F1, the Speedtail adopts a central driving position, dihedral doors, and is limited to only 106 examples, but each one was sold before the car was announced to the world. If you couldn't secure a build slot, one of them is being sold by Mecum Auctions.
This particular Speedtail is the 100th example that rolled off the production line. Finished in Volcano Yellow with Galvanic Grey brushed and polished brightwork and a bespoke MSO yellow and black interior, the 100th Speedtail has been driven a mere 194 miles since it was built.
That's a travesty considering McLaren's "Hyper-GT" is comfortable enough to take on long-distance journeys. Thanks to its aerodynamic teardrop shape and an electrified 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 producing 1,035 horsepower, the McLaren Speedtail can reach stratospheric speeds.
The McLaren Speedtail will accelerate from 0-186 mph in just 12.8 seconds and hit a top speed of 250 mph, making it the fastest car McLaren has ever made. The 100th McLaren Speedtail also rides on black ten-spoke wheels with Volcano Yellow brake calipers matching the exterior and Pirelli P-Zero tires. Inside, the interior features Semi Aniline quilted leather with bespoke stitching and a bespoke embroidered headrest.
When it was new, the McLaren Speedtail would set you back $2.2 million, but we've seen other barely-driven examples advertised for more than double that. There's no auction estimate for this example looking for a new owner, but with less than 200 miles on the clock, we expect it to sell for well into seven figures.
