If you're in the market for a McLaren F1, we likely don't need to tell you you're going to need a fat stack of cash to take one of the supercars home. The machines rarely wind up for sale, and when they do, they command a serious price tag.

Tom Hartley Jr. recently earned himself a spot in the record books when he sold his F1 to a very happy buyer. The V12-powered McLaren brought in 3.5 million pounds, or around $5.6 million, becoming the most expensive supercar ever sold in the process. Keep in mind, this is just a standard road version of the F1.

Race examples and longtails could conceivably fetch even more cash. Hartley owns an exotic car dealership and has been buying and selling vehicles since he was 11 years old. Even so, he says the F1 is still his favorite car of all time.

      This is the supercar that every supercar these days seems to look like. Can't beat the original....it's still stunning today.

      Worth every penny, and it will only appreciate.

        Those of us without $5.6 million would otherwise argue it's not worth that much. But yes, it probably will appreciate so one could look at this as a good investment if you have the means to buy one in the first place.

      If I came into a good amount of my I would buy one. This is, to me, the greatest car of all time and with prices going up and up it's a good investment. Lucky bastard.

      I sure wish the new P1 was designed after this car. The F1 still looks good today

      That is disappointing to me... I remember telling myself that if I won the Lotto and took home at least $50 million after taxes, I was willing to pay $5 million for a McLaren F1 LM, which has been my dream car ever since I first heard about it. Apparently that might not be enough, considering how this "regular" F1 fetched more than that. Time to win $100 million to make it happen.

        Seriously? This car is better than anything I have ever seen from Ferrari, and I am a Ferrari fan!

          Men....and I use that term dubiously.......I'm 73 and I was kicking tires probably before your fathers were born....I grew up in an automobile dealer family.........I know cars!.......McLarens may have great components but their styling sucks.......Even the new one is no where near the level of a PF designed body...... A 330 P4 might be worth $5.5m...but so is a pontoon fender TR..........

      Nice car and all, but you need to have some serious issues to pay that much for any car.
