As the days go by, it becomes more clear that folks love their basic supercars.
If you look back to the first supercars that lacked power steering, ABS or traction control, it seems that they're receiving more attention than the latest and greatest.
The buzz these days calls them "analog" supercars. Although dangerous if you don't show them respect, they are arguably the most pure form of driving.
And if you have been keeping an eye on them, their value continues to go one direction: up, up and up.
When we heard that someone paid over $8 million smackers for a McLaren F1, we thought that price was a bit inflated. It seems only like yesterday you could have one for $2-3.5 million without a problem. Clearly, the market has rocketed forward as just over 100 cars left the factory — just over 60 being road-going versions.
Now news has surfaced that Michael Andretti's red car has fetched an astonishing $10.5 million.
While the P1 may be the car of the moment as it takes journalist's breath away due to its immense power, it seems that the F1 still is the car that holds people's heart. I mean, why else would someone drop over $10 million on a ride? That's emotion talking.
With a wallet, that is.
