The first McLaren Elva to be offered at auction goes under the hammer at Bonhams’ Supercars on Sunset sale, set to run as a live online event from its Los Angeles gallery on 10 April. With just 47 miles on the clock and a pre-sale estimate of $1,700,000 – 2,100,000, the open-cockpit roadster is McLaren’s lightest road car to date and the latest creation in its ‘Ultimate Series’. Powered by an 804bhp 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8, the Elva boasts a sub 3 second dash to 60mph and a production run limited to 149 examples.
The McLaren line-up also features a track-only 2019 Senna GTR with less than 50 miles (estimate $1,700,000 – 2,100,000) and a 500-mile 2019 Senna at $950,000 – 1,100,000.
A 1,000-mile 2019 Ford GT Heritage Edition, owned from new by NHL star Ryan Getzlaf and optioned with over $120,000 in extras, is catalogued at $950,000 – 1,100,000; while notable entries among the nine Ferraris on offer include a barely used 2020 F8 Tributo with less than 200 miles and an equally impressive $103,500 in options (estimate $385,000 – 425,000), and a 1983 512 BBi showing some 23,700 miles (estimate $225,000 – 275,000).
RM Sotheby’s has consigned a 1981 Porsche RUF BTR for its next monthly Open Roads online only auction, with a guide of $90,000 – 110,000. Delivered new to Germany as a 911 Turbo, it was converted by RUF in 1987 to a BTR, giving 374bhp from its 3.4-litre single-turbo engine and exported to the States soon after. Bidding opens on 21 April and runs through until the 29th.
