With only 64 road-going models ever made, this McLaren F1 is one of the most desirable cars of the modern era.

A very rare 1995 McLaren F1 has been listed for sale in the US.

A total of 106 McLaren F1 models were built, with McLaren only producing 64 in street-legal trim (the others being racing cars).

This particular example is one of only seven sold brand-new in the US, with broker Issimi stating the car has only ever had two owners.

The McLaren F1 is powered by a 6.1-litre BMW-sourced V12 engine, sending 461kW and 650Nm to the rear wheels through a gated six-speed manual transmission.

Though the design was relatively subdued compared with its peers from Ferrari and Bugatti, the F1 was perhaps most notable for its 'butterfly' doors and unique three-seater layout – with the driver given prime position in the centre.

While many consider the original McLaren F1 to be one of the most engaging driver's cars ever built, designer Gordon Murray is hoping to replicate that with his latest creation, the GMA T.50 – arguably the F1's spiritual successor.

Pricing hasn't been revealed for the red McLaren, but it's possible the vehicle could match or better the record set by a McLaren F1 LM in 2019, selling at auction for US$19.8 million (AU$29 million at the time). Unfortunately, as this particular vehicle is being sold privately, it's unlikely the final price will be revealed to the public.
