McLaren F1 LM has sold for $19.8m
A limited-edition McLaren road car with a gold-plated engine bay has become the most expensive vehicle to ever sell at auction.
The 1994 McLaren F1 LM – standing for Le Mans – went under the hammer on Friday during RM Sotheby’s Monterey auction in California.
Four and half minutes was all it took to sell the rarest McLaren F1s silver two-door supercar. The buyer is reportedly a private collector who lives in the USA, and will now own one of just two McLaren F1s upgraded by McLaren itself to LM spec.
It is one of just two road cars to be given the LM specifications by McLaren and was awarded the honor in tribute to the car’s victory in the 1995 24-hour Le Mans race.
The F1 got a high downforce package that changed the car’s front air dam and added vents above the front wheels and a wing at the back, while the BMW 6.1-litre V12 was freed of its restriction and thus produced 680bhp
