Tom Hartley Junior recently made the headlines, when the company sold one of the lowest McLaren F1 models in existence. Now, the luxury car sales company have listed a very rare McLaren P1 for sale.

The McLaren P1 is a rare car anyway, having been limited to just 375 units. Powered by a 3.8L V8, the P1 produces 903BHP, a 0-60MPH time of 2.8 seconds and a top speed limited to 217MPH. McLaren also built 14 experimental prototype cars for testing during the early stages of the P1's development. Many of these were destroyed in crash testing and other demanding test schedules.

The prototypes that did survive the vigorous testing were stripped back to their carbon fibre bodies, and rebuilt to the same specification as the road-going P1 models. Tom Hartley Junior is selling prototype XP05, which has been rebuilt by it's one and only owner in McLaren Orange. Having covered just 300 miles, the car is expected to be purchased by a collector. The car sales firm refuses to state the price though, having listed the prototype as POA!
