1998 McLaren F1 'LM-Specification' Sold at RM Sotheby's

Behold the most iconic supercar of the modern era. On 31 March 1998, a McLaren F1 achieved a top speed of 240.14 mph at the Ehra-Lessien proving ground in Germany, setting a record for road-going production cars that would stand for nearly seven years.

The 63rd road-specification F1 built was a featured star at RM Sotheby's.
Only five LMs were sold to the public and they rarely come to market. In 2015 Sotheby's auctioned off an ultra-rare 1998 McLaren F1 LM for a reported $13.75 million.
The ultimate version of one of the greatest automobile ever built, this car's new owner will become a member of a close-knit and exclusive fraternity.

It didn't come cheap however. Word is £15 million was enough to swing the deal.
