McLaren F1 chassis #069 up for sale

McLaren F1 chassis #069 up for sale

Even by supercar standards, the McLaren F1 is a pretty rare creation. Only 64 road legal examples were ever made in its six year production run, all of which are maintained and managed by McLaren Special Operations (MSO) who have just put one up for sale. What makes this particular F1 special is the fact that its the last ever of its kind.

Bearing chassis #069, the car that you see here is in factory condition and has covered just 2,800 miles (4506km) since new. During 1998, only six examples of the original F1 were completed, and chassis #069 was the 60th model overall to be hand-built in Woking, England.

It’s finished in carbon black and features stealth finish to the 17-inch centre-locking magnesium wheels. The central driving seat is finished in black and contrasting red leather, with the dual passenger seats upholstered in alcantara.

The McLaren F1 is the brainchild of Gordon Murray and Peter Stevens and was developed using Formula 1 expertise and technology. It’s the first road car to feature a full carbon fibre chassis, and with a central driving position and an engine bay lined with gold.

Powered by a naturally-aspirated mid-mounted 6.1-litre, the BMW V12 engine producing 627bhp, it broke the record for the fastest production road car with a top speed of 390.7kmph back in its heyday. More than 20 years on, the F1 still holds the title of the fastest naturally-aspirated production road car ever built.
