    Oh, oh. Everyone's dumping. The bottom must be about to drop out in the F1 market. :)

    Apparently, this one came from Japan; although I could be mistaken but an "insider" informed me of the detail. Damn.. another chance to look at one of the best cars in the world.

    Not from the same owner as the red one.

    Crappy that it's not CA legal. Yellow could look killer.

    Yo Dan, can you confirm that the car is indeed from Japan? Do you know any details about the car? Are there any LM's in the Bay Area?

    The red one was in Japan for a while. Some dude in the US (CA) bought it and had it converted for road use (don't know how). He sold it to the guy with the yellow one. The yellow one was originally from Brunei and then sold through a place in England.

    Larry Ellison has one...as does Steve Jobbs. There's a guy who posts in the SoCal section that is to McLaren's what NNO is to Enzos. Try PMing him for more info....

    Yes

    Sold through Taylor and Crawley. They handle most McLarens now since they are owned by David Clark who was head of sales @ McLaren Cars when they were new.

    Clifford Meltzer was the owner of the red one before it was sold to Schaevitz (sp?) Before him, the car was owned by Michael Andretti and either before him or after him, it was in Japan

    Steve Jobbs does not have a McLaren, neither does Bill Gates before anyone asks.


    The Yellow car is chassis #014.
