Perfect 1995 McLaren F1 Fetches $18.6 Million at Auction

It always seemed like a sacrilege to us to buy an incredible supercar and never drive it. Doing that turned out to be a pretty good plan for the owner of this 1995 McLaren F1, which was 25 of 106 examples made. Making the car even rarer is that it’s the only one finished in a paint called Creighton Brown.

This particular F1 also has all of its original accessories and only has 242 miles on the odometer. It’s described as one of the finest examples of a McLaren F1 in existence and is original down to the tires that it rolled out of the McLaren factory wearing.

The car was sold at auction by Gooding & Company during its 2021 Monterey auction, and set a world record, becoming the most expensive McLaren F1 ever sold. The winning bid was $18,600,000. Once the auction house added in all their fees, the final sale price was $20,465,000. That is a whole lot of money, no matter what type of car you’re buying.
