RM Sotheby’s has long been revered for listing exceptional vehicles — if not some of the rarest automobiles the world has ever seen. With that in mind, the acclaimed auction house recently received an ultra-rare McLaren F1 to flip, however, not through its internal auction process but rather via its new Private Sales division. With this new method, interested parties no longer have to contend with rival bidders and will instead agree upon the suggested sale price.
Already special in its own right, this McLaren isn’t your prototypical F1 machine. Regarded as one of only two LM-Specification models that have been outfitted by the McLaren Special Operations team, the vehicle goes on to boast a swarm of cosmetic and internal power upgrades. Notable features include the Extra High Downforce Package, which consists of front wing vents, an aggressive rear wing, gas discharge headlights and much more, all while capable of producing a staggering 680 hp at 7,800 rpm.
This super rare McLaren F1 was previously listed on RM Sotheby’s a few years back and was sold for a whopping $13.7 million USD. Although the asking price remains undisclosed through the new Private Sales department, it’s likely safe to assume that the current asking price will hover around the same value, if not more, than what it previously sold for.
In case you missed it, this gorgeous 1956 Maserati A6G/2000 Berlinetta Zagato is set for auction.
