  • Lark McLaren F1 GTR

    Have you ever wanted to own a race car with actual racing provenance? Today is your lucky day. Well, really every day is your lucky day if you can afford to buy this McLaren F1 GTR.

That's left murky on purpose by the seller, who may be counting on provenance to lure the right buyer with a sky-high budget. This is chassis 27R, which has a rather interesting history.
