McLaren F1 #059 RM Sothebys Auction Monterey Car Week
The McLaren F1 is an extremely rare supercar that rarely pops up for sale, but chassis #059 is really special because it’s the only one to leave the factory with a unique headlight setup out of the 64 road cars manufactured. Simply put, its existing headlight internals were replaced with hardware from the BMW Z1 Roadster, while headlight housings were trimmed to be made slightly shorter.

Today, of the 106 F1s built, multiple F1s reside alongside one (or more) of their peers in large collections, making the true number of current F1 owners far fewer than 100, as illustrated in this example’s ownership history. Acquiring this F1 would allow one to join that exclusive club of owners and drivers, achieving something that millions of enthusiasts can only dream of but few, perhaps only a few hundred people, have ever achieved,” said RM Sotheby’s.
