I was planning on doing a new "Locations of McLaren's in America" list soon so that I can keep it updated. For the most part, we have a lot of the old mysteries ironed out. I still believe there are 2 or 3 cars here that are not officially accounted for or the owner's info isn't available yet. It's only a matter of time though until someone comes up with it. With the advent of the internet, hiding a McLaren F1 is becoming more and more difficult. ;)

Incidentally, 'Wyclef' and 'Brunei' are spelled wrong on your list.

I can't wait for that list to come out. I've been
doing some studing on the board and other places
for information and it seems that Dan Kennedy has
or is in the process of selling his beautiful F1.

Dan is selling is his and has been for several months. I think he might be looking to recoup too much of his investment in the car and that could be why no one has snatched it up. The same is true with nearly every customized car though - if it's done to one owner's specific tastes, it can be quite difficult to find someone else with similar tastes. You hardly ever get back any extra money your pour into a car when you modify it. Seeing as how the modifications to Dan's F1 aren't enhancing the performance in any way, I'm not sure there are too many people who would be interested in an F1 that would care to have them. I know I wouldn't need a Navigation unit in my F1 or an MP3 player. I'd rather have an unmolested example if I could get my hands on one.

One side note - the website for Dan's car appears to be gone :confused: - www.mclarenforsale.com (http://www.mclarenforsale.com) - isn't coming up for me right now. Maybe the host is just having problems, or maybe Dan is tired of paying for the bandwidth so that us supercar dreamers can stare at his car all day long. :lol2:

Peloton your right - the site is down!!! :eek: Whenever I go there, it says this:

This site requires JavaScript. If you are not redirected to a new page,
please enable JavaScript in your browser and refresh this page.

And redirects me to "Eufora, The Income Opportunity Credit Card". Kennedys F1 either sold or he's trying a different method of selling it.

Peloton25, When you buy a used Mclaren F1 it's not
the same as when you buy a used Handa Accord. When
you purchase a used Mclaren F1 it is sent back to the
factory for a complete overhaul and then it's refitted to
your own body and costumized the way you want it to
be. So essentualy you're getting a brand spankin new
car.

tvrfreak
10-20-2003, 02:04 PM
Yes and no. McLaren will do as much or as little as you want them to. Certainly you can have the interior retrimmed and the exterior repainted and have everything cleaned with a toothbrush as well as install the latest gizmos. And you can have a complete engine rebuild and replace the clutch. But you can also just get a light inspection done and drive away.

It's all up to how fussy the buyer is, and how much lighter they want their pockets to feel--after already spending a fair chunk on the purchase...

Peloton25
10-20-2003, 02:26 PM
:iagree:

MclarenF1LM - Not every car goes back to the factory at the time of purchase. It is certainly an option, but it isn't always the case. The ones that do don't always receive a complete overhaul as you suggest. It's all dependant on what the new owner wants.

May I also add my concurrence to previous statements by TVR and Peloton. It does depend heavily on the wishes of the new owner or the previous depending on how the sale is orchestrated, as any necessary repairs or upgrades may the the negotiated responsibility of the seller. Many cars require the update of the fuel cells. Many cars are left without this maintenance for many years, if ever done at all. This service is most likely done by the factory, but it can be done by the certified Service Centers around the world. More often then not, the car is sent to the factory for the work. As has been said, that is not a standard or automatic thing upon new ownership. It must be commissioned and paid for by the new owner unless negotiated otherwise by the requirements of the deal between buyer and seller. McLaren most certainly will not grant the work free of charge. Quite the opposite.

I new that they wouldn't give it for free but my
point was that you needn't worry about getting some-
one elses unspirited custom Mclaren.


I have two more to add to the list. The first is Herb
Chambers, and the second is owned by the owner of turner motorsports(I don't know what his name is though).



Sultan of brunai.........8 Mclaren F1s(thats not a typo)
Ralph Laren...............2 Mclaren F1s
Jay Leno..................1 Mclaren F1
Wycliff Jean..............1 Mclaren F1
liam Howlett..............1 Mclaren F1
Elton John.................1 Mclaren F1
Dan Kennedy.............1 Mclaren F1
Herb Chambers..........1 Mclaren F1
Owner of TM.............1 Mclaren F1(posably 2)

PS. does any one know if Gordon Marry owns an F1. Not that
I have any evidence to suggest it but, I thought that it was
a logical possability

Peloton25
10-23-2003, 10:00 AM
Frank Selldorff doesn't own Turner Motorsports. He does own a black F1 road car that's here in the USA (#007), an LM which is also here(LM3), and apparently a third McLaren - a silver F1 road car (#068) which I have listed in a 'location unknown' status. That last car could be here awaiting certification, and it could also still be in England as some have speculated.

BTW: AFAIK Will Turner is the owner of Turner Motorsports. drewwtms can correct that statement if its not true.

Peloton25

I'd say I'm 90% positive Liam is a McLaren F1 owner. I don't know about Elton though. That sounds more like speculation to me. Sure he's a collector of cars, but I'd never really seen any accurate info to suggest he's a McLaren F1 owner. It's the same with Bill Gates - I've seen a lot of reports of him owning one or multiple McLaren F1's when in reality I don't believe he's ever been an owner.

http://www.google.com/url?sa=U&start=4&q=http://members.madasafish.com/~smbu/pn/news/2000/april/16/&e=7421

There are others with similar info that can be found around the web. Also, he's not with Oasis, but Prodigy. I knew it was one of those.

>8^)
ER

TcarR
10-23-2003, 04:48 PM
I live in Britain and had no idea that Liam had one. He has the producing and song writing credits though so he probably can afford one. The confusion over Oasis and Prodigy is because he is married to one of the Appleton sisters, formely of All Saints (ever heard of them, over there?), the other appleton sister is married to Liam Gallagher, frontman of Oasis. I'll try and find out exactly which car he has or had.

scoob
10-23-2003, 05:23 PM
I would be very surprised if Liam Gallagher had a McLaren. If he did it would have been in the tabloids in the UK. I believe Elton John had a XJ220 Jag. I haven't heard anything about him owning a McLaren F1. Nick Mason of Pink Floyd fame has a GTR along with lots of other great cars. Another rock star into cars in a big way is Jay Kay (Jamiroquai) who has an Enzo.

mini magic
10-23-2003, 05:50 PM
Elton sold his XJ220, it was auctioned off with some of his other cars, my mom showed me an article about in in hello/ok (one of those womens mags) a while ago

TcarR
10-23-2003, 06:55 PM
Re-reading my post i make it sound as though Liam Gallagher has an F1, which he dosn't. I meant that i'd check to find out which F1 Liam Howlett has. So far i haven't found anything apart froma few stories confirming that he has or has had an F1.

I bet XOTech is aware of some of the more 'celebrity' F1 owners. Now that he's back in action, hopefully he'll be willing to drop some names. I'd be interested in knowing if Eric Clapton is truly an F1 owner as I've heard that he purchased George Harrison's F1. In fact, I think gerd may have originally posted that info here. Not certain if it was fact or rumor at the time.

I'm still processing the data for the list. I'm adding a
few more columns for chassis number, color, location,
model and, status.

Just out of curiosity, I read that Christopher Dawes
crashed his F1, I found this picture and was wondering if
it is his crashed F1. I figured that it might be because
in his crash the car split in half and burst into flames; it
looks like all that stuff happend to this car.

I don't see any evidence of fire in this pic...looks more like a rear end collision. The McLaren F1's muffler is designed to absorb impact and act as the rear "bumper" and it looks like it did the job admirably.

The picture above is not the aftermath of the Chris Dawes crash. That car was indeed burned. So badly, that it was not immediately recognizable aside from the profound damage to the car from hitting the tree. The engine was completely severed from the car and many hundreds of feet away from the bulk of the other parts.

The car in the above picture was undergoing either testing or a promotional session. The driver lost control and backed it into the wall at nearly 200mph. The car survived very well and was rebuilt. The occupants survived without injury. Not so in the Dawes crash. I am not certain of the chassis number of the above car. I do have further information about this very car, but it is not immediately available without going through my volumes of data. I will see what I can turn up.

Not many people recognize him by that title and even less will probably remember it. The "Sultan of Brunei" demands immediate recognition since that is the name most people know him by.

Oh ya, "Haji Hassanal Bolkiah" is much easier to say than "Sultan of Brunei." :lol:

Since we're getting all specific anyway, we are not even technically talking about the Sultan himself. The automobile collection is more of an endeavor carried out by the Sultan's younger brother Prince Jefri and his eldest son Prince Haakem.
