A 1995 McLaren F1 with just 400 km is up for auction!

Expected to fetch upwards of US$ 15 million dollars, this McLaren F1 is said to be as original as it gets.

The McLaren F1 is one of the most iconic supercars to date. The unique seating position, the Le Mans-winning pedigree and a limited run of just 106 units are just some of the things which make it so special.

Among them is this, a unique model with a special 'Creighton Brown' colour scheme and an odometer reading of less than 400 km. This 1995 McLaren F1, with chassis no. 29, will soon be up for auction by the Gooding & Co. at Pebble Beach between August 13 and 14, 2021.

Expected to fetch upwards of US$ 15 million, this McLaren F1 is said to be as original as it gets. The car still sits on the original set of Goodyear Eagle F1 tyres. It also comes included with the original toolkit and luggage set.

The car is said to have spent most of its life in a private collection in Japan and has rarely been seen out in public. The car is said to be hardly driven and exceptionally maintained, keeping it in a near as-delivered condition.

The McLaren F1 was the brainchild of Gordon Murray and was hailed as a mechanical masterpiece at the time of its first unveil, back in 1992. The F1 made use of state-of-the-art materials, including carbon, Kevlar, titanium and even gold.

The McLaren F1 is powered by a 6.0-litre, naturally-aspirated V12 engine, producing 600 BHP while redlining at 7,500 rpm. It even held the title of the 'world's fastest production car', with a top speed of 240 mph (386.2 km/h).
