McLaren Special Operations is selling a pristine McLaren F1 with only 2,800 miles on it.
The McLaren F1 is heralded as one of the best supercars of all time, and for good reason. With a total of only 106 models—including race cars—ever built, seeing a near pristine example pop up for sale is an extremely rare site. McLaren Special Operations (MSO) is offering one wealthy, and lucky, individual with the ability to own a piece of history with chassis number 069 that only has 2,800 miles on the clock.

While this particular McLaren F1 supercar is chassis number 069, it’s actually the 60th road-legal McLaren F1, which makes it one of the last road going supercars the company built. The black-on-black model wears a stealthy Carbon Black paint job, which also continues to the classically styled rims. On the inside, the all black trend continues, with the only touch of color being the red accents on the driver’s seat. This is basically a “murdered out” McLaren F1, straight from the factory. So black, it’s practically invisible at night time.
The 1998 McLaren F1 in question still has the formidable performance specs that made the classic supercar a force to be reckoned with. Thanks to a BMW-sourced 6.1-liter V12 engine that put out 627 hp and 479 lb.-ft. of torque, the F1 could get to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds and had the ability to reach speeds of over 240 mph. Even by today’s standard, the F1 is an absolutely beast.
What makes this F1 even more desirable is the extra goodies that it comes with, which include a titanium toolkit, fitted luggage set and a Tag Heuer watch that was specifically made for F1 owners.
According to McLaren, the F1 is in Concours (flawless) condition and from the pictures, it looks like that’s an appropriate assessment. With Mr. Bean’s high-mileaged F1 selling for $12.2 million, it’s safe to assume that this previous model will go for much more.
