Tom Hartley Jr, the car salesman who arranged the deal, would not reveal the exact figure for the car but told The Daily Mail that, "I think the McLaren F1 is the best car ever built. It was light-years ahead of its rivals and the model that I have sold is undoubtedly one of the best of the road-going F1s ever built.
"It has an unblemished history, has never been crashed and has been maintained regardless of cost. When you compare it to the Bugatti Veyron, you appreciate the Veyron's technology but the F1 is much rarer and for its time was so advanced."
Only 64 models were ever produced by McLaren during the car's five year production run between 1993 and 1998.
The car is unique in having only three seats, with the driver positioned centrally in front of the two passengers. The F1 was fitted with a 6.1-litre V12 engine that gave the car a top speed of 243 mph and 0-60 time of 3.2 seconds.
Whilst pristine and desirable vintage cars frequently sell for seven figures, modern vehicles traditionally fail to fetch such an impressive price.
