Gooding & Company Reveals One-Off, Time Capsule McLaren F1 Announced for Gooding & Company's Pebble Beach Auctions
Gooding & Company, the official auction house of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance®, is thrilled to announce this singular McLaren F1 for its 17th annual Pebble Beach Auctions on August 13 and 14, 2021. The iconic supercar is one of many premier offerings the esteemed auction house will present at its spectacular two-day sale.
This F1, chassis 029, has rarely been seen in public. This remarkable McLaren spent most of its existence hidden away in a private Japanese collection. While in Japan, it was carefully maintained and seldom driven, contributing to its exceptional present condition. Its current US-based owner has continued to preserve the car in the same as-delivered state. Astoundingly, this McLaren has covered less than 390 kilometers from new and remains in pristine, original condition, down to its date-coded Goodyear Eagle F1 tires, ranking it among the finest and best-preserved examples extant. Adding to this spectacular supercar’s uniqueness is its sensational one-off color scheme, which ideally suits the understated exterior design. According to factory records, chassis 029 was the 25th road car built and is the only F1 delivered in Creighton Brown, a special color named after the executive who was instrumental in establishing the McLaren Cars company. This distinctive livery is perfectly complemented by Light Tan and Dark Brown leather upholstery inside the three-seater cockpit.
