|In 2015, a McLaren F1 belonging to comedian Rowan Atkinson sold for $12 million even though it had been destroyed and rebuilt twice. Later, a converted LM spec F1 sold for $13.7 million at auction. The price tag was $810,000 in 1992.|
Today, classic F1s are worth something around $9m.
|Power for the F1 came from a naturally aspirated 6.1-liter BMW V12. In the standard road car, the engine produced 627 horsepower. In 1998, a five-year-old McLaren F1 prototype reached 243 mph, becoming the fastest car in the world.|
The record would stand for a decade.
