In mid-January next year, Mecum Auctions will offer an interesting McLaren model. It is McLaren 12C High Sport, one of only 10 ever made, and it was commissioned by McLaren boss Ron Dennis. The car – chassis No. 9 is also equipped with a special F1 Vodafone Racing team livery, optional Stealth package and carbon-ceramic brakes, and has only 208 miles (335 km) on its odometer.
Additionally, it has the same new front bumper and rear diffuser as the other 12C High Sport models and additional power, 675 hp in fact. This example also won the ‘Best British Import’ award at the Festivals of Speed at Amelia Island in 2014 and ‘Best in Show, People’s Choice’ at this year’s Festivals of Speed in St Petersburg, Florida.
Mecum estimates that it will sell for between $1.3 million and $1.6 million.
