How are your savings these days? By any chance, do you happen to have an extra $3,175,000 in your bank account? If you do and you want to own a piece of history, then this is the right news for you.
A 1995 McLaren F1 with only 300 miles on the odometer is now available for sale in Malibu, California by Gemballa North America. Okay, the mere fact that it’s a McLaren F1 makes the price tag a little justified, but what makes this car better than all other F1s in the world? It’s the first production McLaren F1 - ever.
It is powered by a 6.1 liter, quad-cam, 48-valve V12 power unit that produces no less than 627 HP and drives through a bespoke six-speed transaxle gearbox. In March 1998, the F1 laid waste to the then world record for the fastest production car in the world when it topped out at a speed of 240.14mph. The record stool unbroken for the next seven years where it was finally broken in March 2005 by the Koenigsegg CCR and then the Bugatti Veyron a few moths later.
