    When I bought them there were still another silver and orange Mac left. I knew it was an extreme good deal but I couldn't convice my wife to let me buy more.

    I even had a chance to get a 1/12 McLaren for $200. But, she wouldn't hear it. :(

    Hi
    Try to make a search on ebay.DE - there you'll find SEVERAL McLarens for around 5+ euro - but note that not every german send their items outside of Germany - but you could be lucky.
    I won 5 cars there yesterday.

    I would love to get my hands on a F1 lm. Are the UT models very good quality. I have never seen any before.

    I've been wondering what happened to the UT F-1 models... I thought they were plentiful about 5 years ago, and then POOF!! All gone. What happened? Why did they stop making that car (or why is it so hard to get one now)? Of course, now that I came to the conclusion I'd like to have one, it's nearly unobtanium!

    From what I understand, McLaren pulled the licensing from the diecast companies and now no one is allow to make any more models of them.

    Plus, the model company, UT, was bought out by Autoart's parent company Gateway models back in the late 90's and now many of their Porsche, Ferrari, and McLaren models are fetching very high dollar on eBay.
