A LUXURY motor has become the most expensive modern supercar in history after a Brit dealer flogged it for more than $5.5MILLION.



Ultra-rare McLaren F1s hardly ever come onto the open market and are highly sought-after by petrolheads.
But Tom Hartley Jr, 29, decided to cash in on his and put it up for sale - racing to a whopping $5.5million pay cheque.
It makes it more expensive than any modern day car and three-and-half times dearer than a brand-new Bugatti Veyron.
Tom, who has sold cars since he was 11, has bought and flogged hundreds of exclusive models over the past 18 years.
He said: “I think the McLaren F1 is the best car ever built.
“It was light-years ahead of its rivals and the model that I have sold is undoubtedly one of the best of the road-going F1s ever built."
The legendary McLaren F1 was built by the British firm between 1993 and 1998.
It is fitted with a bespoke 6.1-litre V12 engine developing 627bhp - giving the lightweight supercar a 0 to 60mph time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 243mph.
This blistering performance made it the world’s fastest car - a title it held for nearly a decade - but is still the world’s fastest non-turbocharged motor.
Just 64 road-going models were built with owners including Jay Leno and Rowan Atkinson, with the Mr Bean actor crashing his twice.
