Today's "holy crap" news comes in the way of this pristine McLaren F1 in Dandelion Yellow up for sale. With Gordon Murray's signature on the back. With all the factory wrapping. With only 148 miles on the clock. Goodness me.
According to its Classic Driver listing, the car was purchased by a Japanease businessman who apparently bought it, never unwrapped it, and never drove it. 20 years later, all the wrapping is still on there, and it looks like this monster of a beauty has done nothing but sit in a climate controlled building for 20 years.
This F1 (chassis number 60 out of 64) also comes with pretty much all of the original accessories, including a set of tools, two keys, owner's manual with hand drawn diagrams, spare steering wheel, and a limited edition Tag Heuer watch with matching serial number (also never worn).
So here's the question; let's say I buy this car and it's now sitting in my garage. Do I drive it or keep it tucked away in museum quality for the rest of time? I'm of the mindset that cars are to be driven (yes, even once in a lifetime masterpieces like this), so assuming I'm filthy rich (since I apparently bought this car), I would rent out Sonoma Raceway for the day, take this baby down there, and give it a good ol' thrashing around the track.
What would you do?
