Auction Block: Lewis Hamilton’s 2010 McLaren MP4-25A F1 Race Car

May 19, 2021

With seven championship titles, 98 race wins, 3,872 league points, 100 pole positions, and 169 podiums, Lewis Hamilton is unequivocally one of the greatest race car drivers to have ever lived. Since his debut season in 2007, the Hertfordshire native has been a dominant force in F1 racing, finishing runner-up in his inaugural series. Despite his immense success on the race track, none of the race-winning prototype cars that Hamilton has piloted have ever surfaced for sale to the general public, however, that’s now about to change as Lewis’ 2010 Turkish Grand Prix-winning McLaren MP4-25A race car is about to hit the auction block.

Boasting chassis no. 1, this McLaren-certified MP4-25A racer is powered by a Mercedes-Benz-developed FO 108X 2.4L V8. In addition to the car itself, the sale includes a host of necessary equipment for running the MP4-25A at the track, and can even be supported by the original factory race team as a division of McLaren’s Heritage department. The ex-Lewis Hamilton McLaren MP4-25A F1 race car is slated to go under the hammer at a special RM Sotheby’s auction on July 17, 2021 — the same weekend as the F1 British Grand Prix — where it’s expected to fetch between $5,000,000 and $7,000,000 — figures that thoroughly demonstrate the extreme rarity and historical significance of this race car.

Purchase: $5,000,000+
