The 2020 McLaren Speedtail odometer is up for auction with 275 miles

If you’re not one of the 106 people privileged enough to get the new McLaren Speedtail, a low-mileage example is the company’s Indianapolis auction going on with the Macum 20.

According to the auction list, this 2020 McLaren speedtail has only 275 miles in odometer. This is partly because it was imported into the United States under the “show and display” rule, which means it cannot drive more than 2,500 miles per year.

This is the only way to get Speedtail in the United States because McLaren decided that it was not worth the engineering of limited-vehicle vehicles in the vicinity of the federal safety regulations required to legalize the road. One problem was SpeedTel’s central driving position, which does not allow for federally mandated side airbags. SpeedTel also uses digital cameras instead of external mirrors, a system that is not road-legal in the United States.

Nonetheless, about one-third of cars in the U.S. are known to call McLaren Speedtail the spiritual successor to the F1, so it’s probably not surprising that many buyers are willing to jump through the legal loopholes to get one.

Although it shares the F1’s central driving position, the SpeedTel is a very different machine. It has a twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 and a hybrid powertrain made with an electric motor. Together, they produce 1,055 hp and 848 pound-feet of torque. McLaren said it would propel SpeedTel at a top speed of 250 miles per hour – 9.9 miles faster than the F1 operated in the 1990s.

McLaren considered the Speedtail to be a hyper-GT aimed at long road travel, giving it a slightly different mission from the F1, which aimed to provide the purest driving experience without exaggeration. Unlike the compact F1, the Speedtail is also huge, 202.8 inches long.

The car at auction is ranked 87th out of 106 manufactured – a number that corresponds to the F1’s production run. It is finished in Heritage Gloss Steel Blue with machined aluminum exterior badge and gloss silver wheel with carbon-fiber cover. The interior features metallic blue silver semi-aniline leather upholstery in contrast to McLaren Orange.

Mecum expects Speedtail to sell for between $ 2.8 million and $ 3 million, or slightly higher than the হলে 2.2 million price tag if new. Any potential bidders should keep in mind that the transfer of ownership must be approved by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and the vehicle must be available for NHTSA inspection until it is at least 25 years old.
