Car and Driver: McLaren Selling Very Last F1 Produced—Bring Arms, Legs, Other Salable Appendages

McLaren Selling Very Last F1 Produced—Bring Arms, Legs, Other Salable Appendages


One of the more lasting quotes from the satirical  movie Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby makes almost no sense whatsoever: “If you’re not first, you’re last.” The implication is that if you were to place second, third, or seventh in a race, you might as well be last. When it comes to a McLaren F1, however, maybe last isn’t so bad. Take this F1, chassis no. 69, the very last one produced, which McLaren Special Operations’ Heritage division is putting up for sale on behalf of a private owner.


This specific F1 was built in 1998 and outfitted with a mean Carbon Black paint job with dark, “stealth”-finished 17-inch magnesium wheels. The driver’s seat—which sits in the middle of the car, flanked by a passenger seat to the left and the right—is covered in black and red leather, while the passenger seats are upholstered in microsuede.


As if anyone would need deal-sweeteners for a car purchase of this awesometude, McLaren is throwing in fitted luggage, a Facom titanium tool set and box, “all books and literature,” and the McLaren F1 watch given to the original owner. So what will it take to bring the car and the swag bag home? McLaren tells us that the car is being sold with “a price on application.” That means you have to ask, and we’d add that you probably can’t afford it. That said, there’s little doubt that it is a highly desirable example of one of the most influential supercars of all time, and mostly because it’s the very last one!
