RM sets McLaren F1 World Record

3.68 Million USD. That’s the amount reached yesterday at RM’s Automobiles of London auction for a mint McLaren F1. This money was swapped for chassis 065 which has lived a pampered life with an immaculately maintained history.

065 was one the last of the road-going cars and was used as showcar in McLaren’s own Park Lane showroom. In 2004, 065 was sold to its first owner once the showroom closed. Since this time, the car has only racked up 484 kms on its odometer. Despite the low mileage it has been to McLaren for a full service.

Such a phenomenal car fetching such a demanding price is a sign that blue chip cars don’t falter under any economy and are solid investments. If this sale is any indication of the future, then we are likely to see more Big Macs on the block soon.
