Bonhams just sold the first McLaren F1 imported into the U.S. for $15.62 million, including buyer’s premium. That’s almost $2 million more than the last F1 that went up for auction, and over a million more than our current valuation for #1 examples of the car. Which is to say, don’t expect F1 prices to come down any time soon. In fact, the price is almost a 50 percent rise in value from just three years ago. The 1995 McLaren F1, consigned by its original owner, is the biggest single sale at the Bonhams 2017 Quail Lodge Auction and one of the most anticipated—and expensive—lots of this year’s Monterey Car Week.
