Just 28 examples of the McLaren F1 GTR exist. If you are one of the few lucky private owners of the racing variant of the most legendary car of at least the last 30 years, you already know that this means spare parts are in short supply. Thankfully, two memorabilia sales have solved your problem.
Both pieces are from chassis No. 06R, the Harrods Mach One Racing car that finished third at Le Mans in 1995. You may remember No. 06R as the car that McLaren matched with a similarly-painted P1 GTR back in 2015, but it is best known as a four-time winner in the short-lived BPR Global GT Series. That car has long since been converted into a road car, but a set of wheels and a racing bumper live from its glory days as a GT racer are available for private sale.
The wheels are being auctioned directly by RM Sotheby’s. They are in fair condition, but, as every discerning F1 GTR owner knows, it is all but impossible to find a good set of F1 GTR-specific Speedline wheels in any condition. The auction is offered without reserve, with RM Sotheby’s estimating a final sale price in the range of $2400-$3600 before shipping from Germany.
The spare rear bumper, still wrapped in the Harrods yellow worn by No. 06R as a racing car, is an even more rare piece. Infinitous has that bumper, complete with original tail lights, listed at $28,000, but an F1 GTR rear bumper is not something you can find just anywhere. Years of historical racing and road use have taken a toll on your priceless McLaren, so you will have to settle for a component in “raced” condition.
Of course, if you somehow do not have an eight-figure McLaren F1 GTR, both the wheels and the bumper would make for some of the most valuable and unique racing memorabilia imaginable. They may not be enough for an F1 to F1 GTR conversion, but automotive conversation starters do not get much more unique than this.
