Mclaren F1 Price

It’s flying. An instant after being launched by a hump in the road at over 100 mph, my view of the sky from the central driving position of the McLaren Fl supercar is pure Cinemascope. The moon could be our destination. In that airborne instant, I believe anything is possible. Forget the moon—with an engine this potent, let’s aim for Mars. When the four-point touchdown comes, it is so velvety that the suspen­sion feels as though it might have been designed for landings. Instantly, the sound of rushing air is shattered by a sharp bark from the engine as the $815,000 McLaren is propelled down the blacktop, accelerating at a rate I’ve never before experienced. Foot down hard, the straight vanishes. As the speedo needle hits 125 mph, an instant shift—so precise and mechanical it’s like pulling back a well-oiled bolt on a rifle—brings fourth gear and another disorienting burst of power that thrusts me forcefully back into the tight-fitting bucket seat. Still we accelerate. Just 5.4 seconds later, a green up-shift light flashes, appropriately positioned at the 7500 rpm redline on the tach in the center of the instruments. Into fifth gear at 150 mph. Still no lessening of acceleration thrust. The car—squat, stable, a green limpet on the road—shoots forward. Maybe there’s space before the corner to grab sixth at 180 mph. Maybe. No. My courage runs out, the sur­vival instinct takes over. Onto the brakes. I press hard, through the pedal’s inert feel before they bite to blunt forward movement. Less than 30 seconds earlier, I’d waited back up the road for an all-clear signal. Even as the BMW V-12 idled evenly at 900 rpm, I could sense its invincibility. The exhaust note might be subdued, but caress the throttle and the revs soar. I can’t resist. Nobody could. This engine responds so instantly it feels as if it doesn’t have a flywheel, like a racing engine. The induction bellow is almost ephemeral it can be timed so accurately. The tach needle jerks savagely around the gauge, as if directly connected to the crankshaft. The F1’s pedals show their racy breeding with machined surfaces, heim-jointed linkages, and a proper brake balance bar. I’m alone at last, able to contemplate the enormity of a car so swift that it demands an utterly different mental approach. The McLaren forces restraint because there is no way to drive it legally—except on an autobahn or a racetrack—and even begin to probe the full extent of its power and speed. It’s an event every time you floor the throttle, producing an irre­sistible desire to remain behind the wheel, to learn as much as possible about a car so intense in its focus, so single-minded in its approach, that I’m convinced even a top-ranked driver could own it for years and still not explore the outer limits of its stag­gering performance envelope. Forget the Jaguar XJ220, Bugatti EB110, Ferrari F40—until now cars deserving to be called rapid. The McLaren blitzes them all. And we have the proof. Confirmed by the Datron optical test gear. The numbers do the talking: The F1 blasts to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds. The Porsche 959, the previous production-car record holder, needed 3.6 ticks of the watch. We saw 100 mph in 6.3 seconds. The Ferrari F40 took two seconds longer. The McLaren hits 150 mph in 12.8 sec­onds, a smidgen longer than it takes Porsche’s latest, greatest 911 to reach 100 mph. Put another way, the McLaren can accelerate as hard at 150 mph as a Ford Taurus can in first gear. Zero to 200 mph takes 28.0 seconds. What’s impressive is the figures show that above 125 mph, the Fl supercar acceler­ates faster than last year’s McLaren MP4/8 Grand Prix race car. The standing quarter-mile is dispatched in a dazzling 11.1 seconds at 138 mph—about a second quicker and 15 mph faster than any other supercar we’ve tested. 1 2 3 Next Page

In 1993, the McLaren F1’s price tag of £600,000 seemed quite expensive. That’s because it was quite expensive, but today it looks something of a bargain when the best examples are climbing ever closer to eight-figure sums. It takes something quite special for a car to stand out in an already rarefied market, but the F1 offered for sale by McLaren Special Operations (MSO) could be such a car. Chassis #069, one of the last produced by McLaren as production wound to a close in 1998, has covered fewer than 2800 miles since new. Like all F1s, it’s also been meticulously maintained by McLaren Special Operations itself throughout its life. Despite its numeric allocation, it was actually the 60th car to be built by the factory, finished in a coat of Carbon Black paintwork with matching centrelock, 17-inch magnesium wheels. Image 11 of 19 Image 11 of 19 One neat feature of F1s is the contrasting colour to its central driver’s seat – done to draw attention to its commanding position within the car. Here, the hot seat is trimmed in black and red leather, while the passenger seats are finished in Alcantara. The steering wheel too and the curvaceous dashboard both wear a coating of the suede-like material. Other items included in the sale are fitted luggage, a Facom titanium tool kit (and matching tool box), all relevant books and literature – one of which is the ‘Driving Ambition’ McLaren F1 book – and a limited-edition owner’s watch. Unsurprisingly, no price is quoted for chassis #069, and interested parties must contact MSO directly to make further enquiries. Want to know more about the F1?

1997 McLaren F1 065 – sold for €3,251,050 In 2004 McLaren elected to close the Park Lane showroom and chassis 065 returned to the factory where it underwent a full service in preparation for its sale to the current Asian owner. As such, it is the last McLaren F1 ever delivered and, since delivery, has never been raced or driven aggressively. As every McLaren, it has been subject to the utmost attention to detail, with the current vendor even flying a McLaren mechanic to Asia to service the car 12 months ago. It has since been returned to the McLaren factory in Surrey for a full service, and is offered with a full clean bill of health. Auction Source: 2008 RM Automobiles of London

Model Overview Images are general in nature and may not reflect the specific vehicle selected. History of the 1994-1998 McLaren F1 The McLaren F1 stands among the greatest sports cars of all time, a revolutionary vehicle that still sets the bar for supercars. The brainchild of Gordon Murray, the renowned designer and technical director of the McLaren Formula One team, the F1 was produced from 1994-1998 by McLaren Automotive, a spin-off of the racing team. With a top-speed of 240.1 miles-per-hour, the F1 became the fastest production car in history, a record it would hold until 2005. A radical three-seat cockpit and butterfly doors made the F1 look every bit as exotic as its carbon-fiber monocoque body, the first such application in a road car. This wasn’t the only unconventional material employed by Murray, as the F1’s engine compartment was lined with gold foil to insulate the carbon body from potential heat-induced deformation. Powered by a 6.1-liter BMW-sourced V12, the 2,425-pound F1 boasted an astonishing power-to-weight ratio. Its 627 horsepower and 479 lb-ft of torque were routed through a six-speed manual transmission and a Torsen limited-slip differential. The F1’s mid-engine design and short, 107-inch wheelbase helped the double-wishbone aluminum suspension provided exceptional handling. Murray wanted the F1, produced from 1994-1998, to be far more than a thinly disguised racing car, so the F1 was fitted with a full host of creature comforts including air conditioning, electric defroster, remote locking, and a CD changer. The center-positioned driver’s seat was custom-fitted to each owner, laid-up in carbon fiber and covered with Connolly leather. Pedal and steering wheel adjustment was also custom-fitted by the factory. Despite the original intention for the F1 to be just a road car, customer demand led to a racing version. The resultant McLaren F1 GTR achieved a Le Mans victory in its first attempt in 1995. 1996 mclaren f1 Info Body Styles 2dr Coupe Engine Types 12-cyl. 6064cc/627hp EFI Number Produced 69
