A man in the United Kingdom has recently sold his McLaren F1 for a whopping equivalent of 5.5 million USD.
The McLaren F1 might be out of production for several years now but that doesn’t mean that it’s out of date and people forgot everything about it. The latest example of just how precious this iconic hyper car really is can be seen in the United Kingdom, where such a model has been sold for an impressive equivalent of 5.5 million USD. The McLaren F1 in question has been sold by Tom Harley Jr., age 29, who has been selling cars since he was 11 years old.
“I think the McLaren F1 is the best car ever built. It was light-years ahead of its rivals and the model that I have sold is undoubtedly one of the best of the road-going F1s ever built”, said Tom Hartley Jr.
As a quick reminder, the iconic McLaren F1 has been produced between 1992 and 1998, and the model came with a two-door body style and a three-seat layout. The McLaren F1 is 4,287 mm long, 1,820 mm wide and 1,140 mm tall, with a curb weight of 1,138 kg. The model is powered by a 6.1L V12 engine, which is producing a total output of 618 HP (461 kW) at 7,400 rpm and 651 Nm of torque (480 lb-ft) available at 5,600 rpm, with the rev limiter set at 7,500 rpm.
