1998 mclaren f1
  • Estimated value: More than $12 million

The McLaren F1 is widely regarded as one of the greatest performance cars ever made.

However, the owner of this car asked McLaren to make a few modifications -- just for him. In particular, he asked that it be fitted with the 680 horsepower V12 used in the McLaren F1 LM -- as in LeMans -- a track-oriented version of the car. He didn't want to turn it into a racecar, however, so he asked for various comfort features, such as upgraded air conditioning, stereo and a satellite navigation system.

It also includes an in-car intercom system so that the driver can communicate with the passengers even over the intense howl of the engine. In a McLaren F1, both passengers sit behind the driver, so chatting at high speeds could be difficult.
