McLaren F1 029 RM Sotheby's auction

This 254-mile McLaren F1 could sell for over £20million

This 254-mile McLaren F1 could sell for over £20million

McLaren F1s don’t come up for sale very often. They’re hot property for so many reasons: they’re rare, celebrated as one of the greatest motorcars of all time, and they’re just about the definition of a blue-chip collector car in 2024.

They don’t transact these days for anything less than £10million. So this one, with just 254 miles on its odometer from new, that became the highest-priced McLaren F1 ever sold when it last came up for grabs in 2021, must have the potential to double that.

Chassis 029 has more than time capsule status to its credit. For a start, it’s presented in a unique colour way. Creighton Brown is named directly after the legendary joint owner of McLaren International, who joined the team with Ron Dennis back in the early 1980s and who was instrumental in the creation of McLaren Cars and the F1.

The car was originally delivered in Japan and comes complete with what is described as an ‘unbroken chain of provenance from new’. That means service records, ownership history and more. As you’d expect for a car that’s seen so little use, all the usual F1 accoutrement is present and correct, including the fitted luggage to match the Light Tan and Brazilian Brown cabin, FACOM tool chest and even the TAG Heuer watch.

We understand that every vehicle is unique, which is why our Agreed Valuation policies take the true value of your classic car into account.

Indeed, it is the mileage that is the huge draw that makes this F1 a real unicorn, with the last owner having covered just 14 miles in the three years since purchasing it. Now, it could be yours, when it hits the Sotheby’s Sealed auction block on 13th May. But with talk of a softening market for all collector cars and the comparative peak this car sold at last, will this F1 manage to surpass its 2021 sale price of $20,465,000? We’ll be excited to find out.

This car is up for sale with RM Sotheby’s Sealed.
