A McLaren F1 Sells for $20.465 Million at Auction

A 1995 McLaren F1 has set a new price record at the Gooding & Company’s Pebble Beach Auctions


  • Only 106 McLaren F1 cars were built.

  • This was chassis #029 and showed only 390 km on the odometer.


The McLaren F1 is a legend within a legend. When the car was released in the early 1990s, it shattered numerous speed and performance records cementing it into automotive lore. It’s no wonder that it quickly became one of the most sought-after collectible cars in history.

The last few years have seen prices skyrocket for the three-seater BMW V12-powered supercar. In 2017, a record $15.62 million was set for a McLaren F1 road car. In 2019, an F1 that was converted to ultra-rare LM specification by McLaren Special Operations Woking factory beat that number selling at an incredible $19.8 million.

This past week, a 1995 model, the 25th road car built, and the only one finished in stunning one-off color, named Creighton Brown, sold at the Gooding & Company’s Pebble Beach Auctions for a staggering $20.465 million. Its exceptional condition and low mileage, showing only 390 kilometres (243 miles) were important factors in setting this price.
