    44900 euros? that's 55K USD that's not expensive, that's OutF*ckingragious!
    1 of 1500 means it's not a one of a kind. Even for the serious collector, I'd say in the low hundreds, like $200. maybe it's a typo and he means 449.00 euros?

    It'd be expensive to me, too!........


    Unless they missed a decimal point somewhere.... but BBR is high dollar, or euro!

    they use the "," in Euros to denote our decimal point.

    Just another reason to stay off of the European Ebay sites.

    The Minichamps McLaren F1 GTR cars are the highest priced (I didn't say valued) Minichamps out there. Most were distributed in Japan. $500 is not unheard of, just a lot for a 1/43 model, and probably high for this one.

    Out of about 600 Minichamps models that I have, only one was more expensive than a McLaren F1. I won't ever buy one, but supply and demand drive the price, and that's what they go for, whether it's $1 or $1000.

    Again, this one is a bit high, but not by much. Besides, if there is that one guy out there who wants it, it may sell for that.

    the west mclaren 1/43'ds usually reach $1000+. Rediculous. I love mclarens, but i wouldn't pay 1000 for a 1/43 model of it. The west gtr models that cost so much were only distributed to team members, thats why they are so much.
