ArtCar collectors are in for a treat as an exceptional 1994 McLaren F1 GTR Chassis No 5 designed by César is all set to go under the hammer next month. The McLaren F1 GTR Chassis No 5 will be auctioned at Artcurial in Paris and is estimated to fetch a price between €2m and 2.5m ($2.4 million and $3 million). The McLaren F1 GTR features a distinctive center-aligned steering wheel in the cockpit, a BMW engine, and a maximum of 640hp at 6,750rpm.
