The Ultimate series is at the top of the McLaren lineup.
So far, P1, P1 GTR, Senna, and Elba have been sent out, but the “Speed Tail” has been introduced into the Hyper GT range, which is a new category in the series.
The V8 3994cc engine loaded on the mid is armed with a twin turbocharger and delivers 757ps. The electric motor 313ps is added to it, and the maximum output of 1070ps, which is the maximum for McLaren road cars, is hit.
The performance is overwhelming, and the maximum speed reaches 403km / h, which exceeds the 391km / h recorded by McLaren F1.
The production volume is limited to 106 units after F1, and the price was announced at 1.75 million pounds (about 250 million yen). However, it is also a phantom model that was sold out before the official announcement.
At RM Sotheby’s Auction
Such a speed tail appeared at the Arizona Aution of RM Sotheby’s held in the United States.
There were a certain number of people who wanted to buy a new car that could not be bought, and the condition was also a “new car”, so it attracted a lot of attention.
The 2020 Speedtail, given the serial number 036, runs 30 miles (about 48 km). Delivered to the first owner from McLaren Philadelphia in the fall of 2020.
The exterior color is a stripe added to the Heritage Atlantic Blue prepared for MSO.
Lightweight alloy wheels, black calipers, a stealth titanium-finished diffuser, and more, with options for $ 170,000.

The Arizona Aution, which marks the beginning of 2021 for RM Sotheby’s, was open to a limited number of bidders in light of the status of the new coronavirus infection.
At the same time, online bidding, which is now standard, was also used.
The organizer’s estimated bid for Speedtail is $ 3.5-4.5 million (approximately 364-468 million yen).
After the auction, it was finally settled at $ 3,277,500 (about 340,860,000 yen). It will fit in the new owner’s garage.
Although it did not reach the expected bid amount, it can be said that it is a good amount considering the uncertain economic situation of the corona wreck.
Here, I would like to explain the true nature of the auction.
