McLaren F1 sold for $5.5M

A dealer from the UK has managed to sell a McLaren F1 for 3.5M GBP (5.5M USD).

Tom Hartley Jr. (aged 29) has been selling cars since he was 11 and his recent transaction was of a McLaren F1. He considers the F1 as being the “best car ever built” because it was “light-years ahead of its rivals”.

As a reminder, the McLaren F1 was manufactured between 1993 and 1998 and came with a V12 6.1-liter engine producing 627 hp (467 kW). Thanks to its low curb weight it was able to perform the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in only 3.2 seconds and reach 243 mph (391 km/h).

McLaren built only 64 road-legal units. Jay Leno and Rowan Atkinson are two of the most famous owners, with the latter crashing his car not once, but twice.
