FAN-TASTIC FACTS ABOUT SU­PER­CAR

7 Days in Dubai - - DRIVEN -

The McLaren F1 is re­garded as one of the great­est su­per­cars ever made - and you can now get your hands on one for a cool $10-$15 mil­lion. At the end of April, McLaren an­nounced that chas­sis #069 - one of the very last pro­duced - is up for sale and in fac­tory con­di­tion with less than 2,800 miles cov­ered from new. Be­tween 1993 and 1998 only 64 F1 road cars were pro­duced, mak­ing it one of the rarest and most de­sired mod­els among col­lec­tors. Dur­ing 1998, only six ex­am­ples of the orig­i­nal McLaren F1 were com­pleted, and chas­sis #069 was the 60th model over­all to be hand built in McLaren’s Wok­ing head­quar­ters. It is pre­sented in Car­bon Black com­pli­mented by sub­tle de­tail­ing through­out, in­clud­ing 17-inch cen­tre­lock­ing mag­ne­sium wheels. The McLaren F1 held the world record for fastest pro­duc­tion car with a top speed of 389kph be­fore be­ing over­taken by the Bu­gatti Vey­ron in 2005. Maybe it’s time to speak to your bank man­ager.
