This doesn’t happen that often. There was a McLaren F1 GTR standing in front of us, and the chap who owns it just handed over the keys, and left. Tough decisions needed to be made. »
The McLaren 12C is a fantastic car, there’s no disputing this fact. It was born from years of street and race proven technology and received by the automotive community with open arms. But there was something missing. »
Ladies and gentlemen, the “Pinnacle Portfolio” is the largest and most valuable single-owner collection to ever be presented at auction. No kidding! »
There are only three McLaren F1 GTs in the world, which means there are only six of these carbon fiber mud flaps in existence. Let’s get geeky! »
