I wonder if there was any maintenance that was done to it. A car sitting even in a heated garage or bubble wrap still needs some up keep.

Hope the buyer doesn’t pull a Paul Walker and try to drive it on old rubber.

If he never even sat in it, I doubt anyone ever put a wrench on it. At this point, I think it's purely an art piece - which is both cool and kind of sad.

Who would pick such a gaudy color for a car they’ll never drive.

^ my guess was the OG probably has 2, one to drive...and one to.... well now we know.

A lot of other things could be the client placed an order back in 92', and when 97 came around and the car was finally delivered, he was probably already after some other car and so this was just delivered and stored...

What did the last one sell for $15m? I could see this time capsule easily fetching $25m.

From what I read in another blog post (Not sure if it is valid), the owner did not register the car in Japan because of its high tax (100% of the car value), so the F1 was stored and serviced periodically during his/her ownership

Japanese drivers are well known for actually using their supercars (research Takeshi Moroi, he daily drives a Porsche 962C), so this is an even bigger tragedy. The Sultan of Brunei bought four F1 road cars, three LMs, one of three F1 GTs and a McLaren F1 GTR '95 (chassis #09R), only to let them all rot in the Borneo rainforest.

That's why I'm glad that the big 3 hypercars have a first right of refusal program; Ferrari/McLaren/Porsche reserve the right not to sell you the car (or refuse to do business with you in the future) if they think you're just going to garage it, or flip it, or treat it like an investment instead of actually driving it.

As amazing as it is, it's just going to be bought by someone and kept exactly as it is now. Just somewhere else. Hopefully on display at least somewhere. Leno's Garage maybe.

Berz out.

Yeah but they never enforce that kinda shit. Most of their wealthy clientele eventually flip the car. I donít know too many guys who kept their aging super cars hermetically sealed. Most drive it on a rare sunny day, wash it, and shove it back in the garage. Then sell it within a few years to extract maximum profit from the current model year. I know a lot of 458 owners who are now 488 owners. They donít lose that much on depreciation as the 458 can still command 250k

Why do all those pictures look like it's a toy model.
Is there some kind of tilt shift photography technique going on?
Kind of curious because I want to learn more about photography.
