To say that F1s don’t come cheap is a massive understatement. Before McLaren‘s own MSO sold chassis number 069 (a gorgeous all-black rendition of the celebrated vehicle) last year, actor/comedian Rowan Atkinson sold his in 2015 for a whopping $12 million USD — and that one had been involved in two separate crashes. So when the latest F1 went up for sale at Bonhams, it was expected to blow the price point of the previous sales out of the water — and it did exactly that. A sleek silver 1995 production that features the likes of a 627-bhp DOHC V12 along with a six-speed manual transmission and four-wheel independent suspension, the car — the 37th F1 production — went for an astounding $14.2 million USD. Add in the likes of a 10% buyer’s fee and the total comes to a cool $15.62 million USD.
For the buyer, however, the price will undoubtedly be worth it: the F1 only has 9,600 miles on the odometer and was offered up for sale by its original owner. Best of all, though? The car was made road-legal for the United States shortly after its original purchase, but has been restored to its OG form for the new owner. It does, however, come with all of the saved parts from the street-legal conversion, making it one of the rarest F1s out there: just seven of McLaren’s F1s have ever been deemed legal for American roads.
