Jenson Button’s McLaren P1 is going up for sale, and it’s a true work of art. Button, a former champion Formula One driver, won the 2009 FIA Formula One World Championship. Following his announcement in 2016 that he would be stepping down at the end of the season, Button continued to act as a reserve driver and ambassador for McLaren until 2018.
He’s currently competing in the Japanese Super GT Series for Team Kunimitsu.
Button’s McLaren P1 is a stunning work of art. The car was finished with McLaren Special Operations upgrades. The Grauschwartz Grey paint is a stand out color, and the Stealth Pack and grey/black interior finish off the look. The car also featured a unique “Track Mode 2” option—a bespoke software upgrade that makes the car road legal and that cost £20,000, making it only one of few road-ready P1s. The car also features carbon fibre door mirrors and arms, forged wheels, a vehicle tracking system, and front and rear parking sensors, among other customizations.
Jenson only put about 551 miles on the car, but since moving to Los Angeles, Jenson hasn’t been able to enjoy the car as much as he would like—especially that 217 mile per hour top speed or the car’s ability to go from zero to 60 In just 2.8 seconds. Jenson wants the car to go to someone who can fully appreciate the 903 horsepower.
