McLaren Special Operations F1

It is rare that a car from over twenty years ago goes on sale in nearly mint condition. Things happen, stuff gets dented, one of those hundreds (if not thousands) of moving parts gets broken and replaced. All of these variables make it that much more amazing that this McLaren F1 being put up for sale by the brand’s Special Operations Heritage Division is still in ‘factory condition’.

One of only a small number ever made, this supercar sits on McLaren’s #69 chassis that comes with all the bells and whistles that were originally included like a Facom toolkit and and owner’s watch. We don’t have specific numbers on this F1, but if it is anything like its brothers and sisters (we assume it is) it has a 6.1-liter V12 engine that pushes out 618 horses and 477 pounds of torque through a 6 speed transmission to the 17 inch rear magnesium wheels. Because it isn’t enough to just be super fast, the carbon-fiber interior of the car comes with two passenger seats decked out in a super comfortable Alcantra leather. All things said, it is pretty astounding how well the design of this car has stood up over the years. No listed price at the moment – but it’s fair to say this car will be selling in the high 7 or low 8 figures.
