British car dealer Tom Hartley Jr of Derbyshire-based Tom Hartley Cars, who sold the very rare 1998 car, refused to reveal the actual sale price but said it was in 'excess of £3.5 million.

 

"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 Daily Mail quoted Hartley Jr, as saying.

 

The F1 is regarded as the ultimate modern car for collectors with experts comparing its desirability to that of the £22 million Ferrari 250 GTO, and the price now makes it three-and-half times more expensive than a brand-new Bugatti Veyron, the paper said.

 

"When you compare it to the Bugatti Veyron, you appreciate the Veyron's technology but the F1 is much rarer and for its time was so advanced," Hartley said.

 

The legendary McLaren F1, which has three-seats with the driver positioned centrally, was built by the British firm between 1993 and 1998, he added.
