Auction Block: First Street-Legal McLaren F1

Jul 20, 2017

At some point around the year 1995, the 37th example of McLaren’s F1 hypercar rolled out of the factory. And, while 64 total would be made – making them an exceptionally rare motor vehicle in and of themselves – this one was even more special. That’s because it was the first ever street-legal American F1 (of only 7). And now that very same vehicle is going up for auction through Bonhams.

Incredibly, this 6.1-liter V12-powered car had only one owner since its creation and racked up a grand total of just 7,071 miles driven. And that’s about as close to brand-new as you can get at this point. It’s also got the added benefit of going through regular maintenance via BMW – so you can probably expect to get near the original top speed of 240mph, 0-60 time of 3.2 seconds, and access most of the original 627 horsepower. Regardless, this mint-condition vehicular marvel is sure to go for a small fortune and end up in the hands of someone very lucky (and rich).
