    McLaren F1 660.000,-- pounds by Christies

    This month a McLaren F1 with 18.000 km, downf. kit, and LM engine was sold for 660.000,-- pounds in a auction by christies.

    Re: McLaren F1 660.000,-- pounds by Christies

    Man, this car is 12 years old and has not lost value at all since it came out. I know, there's something like 60 road version cars but still...
    When you buy a MCLF1 second hand, the car goes straight to the factory to fit a new seat custom built for you etc.
    I saw that in Brundle's new DVD where he tests verious supercars. (Zonda, Murci, Enzo, etc etc etc, winner is the Enzo for the track and the F1 overall)
    F1 Buyers can ask for telephone, satellite navigation, etc. all the goodies are possible.
    They also show in the DVD some footage of the building process of the SLR, very nice.
    Man, the F1 is 12 years old, that is amazing, when you look at this car, it looks so modern, so beautiful. And of course, it has never been beaten in terms of performance. BMW delivered a masterpiece I must say and Murray did a pretty good job.
    Fanch.

    mph03 starts tomorrow I think, I'm booked for the sat evening show.
    Should be quite fun, with exhibition drives by nidell of the Pagani, Murci, Koenigsegg and presentation of the DB9 coupe and volante and the new TVR Sagaris (400hp for 1000kgs )

    I think it looks a bit OTT, but it does certainly look mean.

    Ok, the back end is a bit fussy, but that front is amazing!
    I was thinking about getting an understated car to taper off the attention from the RS...

    Re: TVR Sagaris pics link

    great info, thanks francois

    what a car! not really beautiful but not boring either. even at TVR standards. i wonder if the merc CLS "coupé" design guys have sneaked into TVR's office and stole the drawings of the front lights. or vice versa.

    Re: mph03

    i've stumbled across a link to a gallery about MPH03:
    http://www.ur-ban.com/gallery/MPH03?page=1

    looks like a weird show IMO. kind of a topgear circus with clarkson as ringmaster?

    Re: McLaren F1 660.000,-- pounds by Christies

    Hi Fanch,

    it was just a general information. I agree the car ist the best sportcar in the world i drove it several times on road and on the race track from mclaren near woking,. But in 1999 the price drop down a little. But after seeing the new supercars the mac price in strong go higher. There are exactly 64 road versions build.
