The last F1 to make it out of the Brunei collection was chassis 005 which arrived in the UK for service by McLaren with 4,700 KMs on the odometer, and in surprisingly better condition that all the rumors seem to suggest.

I saw professional photos of the car when it landed and had been detailed. Then later was privy to Read more

Not one mention in the article or comments of BMW’s X5 Le Mans concept which was also built using a variant of the F1's V12?   :-\

This is an early styling model produced by an outside firm, not a finished car ready to be delivered from McLaren. My guess if you haven’t been around one of these models before, but they are never perfect.

Production of the Speedtails won’t begin until later in 2019, by which time they will have surely “minded the Read more

True - but not enough people caught on to that, hence my need to highlight the explanation once again.

The exterior of the 1,001-horsepower, $2.5-million Veyron L’or Blanc is still surfaced in a mix of aluminum and carbon fiber, but has been painted using the same patterns and techniques employed by the artisans at German porcelain designer Königliche Porzellan-Manufatur Berlin (KPM).

I’m betting their asking price is in the neighborhood of $20M. Whether it will sell for that is anyone’s guess. It represents a rare opportunity to acquire what some say is the ultimate variation of the F1, while others would argue that much of the car is no longer original. I can see both sides of the argument there, Read more

Getting in is much easier than it looks. Sit on the left passenger seat and then lead your legs into the driver’s footwell while sliding your bum into the driver’s seat. If you are smaller and the seat is all the way back you can slide you bum into the driver’s seat first and then twist your legs into the footwell.

Total mileage over the 20 year period on this chassis is 19,295 which can be seen in one of RM’s photos. The mileage figure noted in the article only refers to that which has accumulated after the engine swap.

Mazda pulled funding for this thing when the Bubble burst, but TWR took it back, cut the roof and stuck a Porsche engine in it and won Le Mans twice in a row in 1995 and 1996.

Why is this being reported as “pedestrian” and not “cyclist”?

Porsche Effect display should last about a year, with some potential changes to the display cars as time goes on. Also be sure to book a Vault Tour with your visit as they couldn’t fit all of the cars they wanted to include in the ground floor gallery.

The other place it would be great to have one displayed is at the Air Force Museum in Dayton, Ohio - that place is incredible. Instead they ended up with the full sized Crew Compartment Trainer which is interesting to look at but not nearly as impressive as the real thing. I think the one in NYC would be more Read more
