Hey, 0-60 readers! Are you in the market for a new supercar, but can't stand the electronics and nanny systems and hybrid technology it seems car makers are cramming into every supercar these days? Are you hankering for a McLaren P1, but you happened to be number 376 in line to buy it? Or do you just really miss how awesome 1996 was and wish you could pretend it was still that year by driving the hottest new car made then? Well, if any of those three situations apply to you, you're gonna want to check out this McLaren F1.
This yellow F1 is currently in Japan, where it appears to have done nothing but sit for the last 17 years or so. (Perhaps its previous owner was the world's wealthiest Brood II cicada?) Like every McLaren F1, it was factory-tested quite vigorously to make sure it worked right, so it likely has about 186 miles on the odometer, which is about average for a delivery F1—but since its purchase, it has apparently been sitting in a garage ever since. Based on the pictures, this F1 looks like it's been taken care of—but we'd still want to have a qualified technician take a good, hard look at it to make sure everything's in good shape after sitting in a garage since Clinton's first term.
And how much should you expect to pay for this beauty? Well, the original listing appears to be offline at the moment (we're guessing it crashed due to too much traffic), but F1s tend to go for multimillion-dollar price tags these days—so one in really good condition, like this, will probably fetch at least $3-4 million. Hey, nostalgia ain't cheap. [via Daily Auto Fix]
Only days after being stripped of the "world's fastest production car" title, Bugatti is trying to bust back into the world of high-speed records again by declaring the Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse to be officially the world's fastest open-top production car, with a proven top speed of 254.04 mph. Presumably with the top off, because otherwise, given the car's claimed 258 mph top speed, this wouldn't be all that impressive. (more…)
