Profile

A genuine automotive superstar and the fastest car the world had ever seen - until the Veyron arrived! 240mph and 0-100mph in 6.3sec look like stats from a Le Mans car but the F1 with its incredible 627bhp BMW V12 delivers this race track performance on the road.

After negotiating the Countach like gull-wing doors, the lucky driver sits centrally while two equally lucky passengers sit slightly further back either side - all cocooned in a Formula One style carbon safety cell. The lightweight F1 drives smoothly, even in town, but the unassisted brakes, while competent, require plenty of effort. No expense was spared with the F1 - Kevlar, Titanium and even Gold were used in its construction.

If you want the ultimate automotive investment then this is it. Used values are still climbing with the best examples fetching over ten million pounds.
