Written-off McLaren star of salvage auction - $ 83k

The winning bidder paid $83,000 plus GST for the privilege of owning the exclusive, de-registered wreck through Manheim Auctions New Zealand. Fresh off the lot, an exact replica costs $449,500 with a top speed of 333km/h, reaching the legal limit in about three seconds.

In its current state, this supercar would be extremely unlikely to reach any of those lofty standards.
