A video uploaded onto YouTube is showing the young Elon Musk taking delivery of his McLaren F1.
A lot of years before he was launching rockets into space or becoming the owner of Tesla Motors, Elon Musk was your “average” Silicon Valley geek and even back in the day, he was loaded with money. According to the clip posted below, he has already sold the Zip2 company for 400 million USD in cash and started work at the online banking business X, which became PayPal. Besides investing, Elon Musk also bought some hot supercars and one of them, at least, was this McLaren F1, which you can see being unloaded from a trailer.
The McLaren F1 was a truly revolutionary supercar as it was the fastest in the world in its time. It was put together in just 106 units, between 1992 and 1998 and it was assembled in Woking, Surrey, England. This isn’t your average geek supercar because it has no gizmos on it and this is what probably made it so famous. The McLaren F1 was using a 6.1 liter V12 engine under its hood, which was producing a total output of 627 HP (468 kW) and 651 Nm (480 lb-ft) of torque. From 0 to 100 km/h, the hypercar needed just over 3 seconds and top speed stood at 386 km/h (240 mph). Back in August, 2013, chassis $066 has been sold for 8.47 million USD at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
