Har'har! :D

(apologies, I merely could not resist! Truth-be-told... when an F1 comes a-callin' a pocketbook better be a-talkin'! If the means are there, it should be acquired. Period/fullstop.)

I havent seen any F1 avalible to purchase in a month or so... But better prepare a larger amount of money, otherwise you wont be able to buy one with any of your terms.

I'm guessing they're pushing at least $7M these days.

I believe ~$4M USD tops can easily get into a driven street/road version. By "easily" I mean if/when one ever surfaces on the market. . .

I'm sure actual prospective buyers on this forum can much better & more accurately offer real-time/real-life insight as to what they are going for currently!

Didn't one sell for ~$7M USD in Italy a couple of months ago? That's where I pulled that number.

$7M would be closing in on nearly double the published record of just over $4M which happened at the RM Auction in London in 2008. That was for a pretty special car at the time - the former Park Lane showroom car from McLaren with pretty much only delivery miles on the odometer.

It's my understanding that values are hovering in the range that Senna has suggested right now but there could be a few special cars that might bring a higher transaction price like an LM or a GTR with fantastic race history. In fact I have heard of a few normal F1 where owner's appear to be fishing a bit in the $5M range.

The last public sale was #062 which was sold by Gooding in Monterey in 2010. That car went for $3.575M including Buyer's Premium to a California owner who then would have had to pay Sales Tax and Registration I assume. Total bill probably hit $4M for him when all was said and done but it was one of the few F1s that have been certified by California's BAR as being smog legal in this state so that likely helped in the desirability column for this particular owner.

Below is a chart that McLaren shared during a presentation in Monterey this past August charting F1 values over a period of time. The info presented is fairly vague, but you can pick out the high water mark from 2008 that I just mentioned and see where some of the other transactions they have been involved in have occurred as well.

To help add a little more context, the first two blips on the chart probably reference the sales of #011 and #073 through Christie's London auction in June 2003 and December 2003 respectively.

I believe that black car for sale via your link found a new home earlier this year. It is chassis #072.

Sometimes they do change hands swiftly, but that link shows a date of March 2011 so I suspect it pre-dates the sale I am aware of.
