Reports suggest that the MP4-25A F1 car is currently stationed at McLaren's HQ at Woking in England but could soon find a new home if it is bought during the auction process. The winner, quite obviously, could look forward to a prized possession, one that is powered by a 2.4-litre naturally-aspirated V8 petrol engine. At just 620 kilos, the F1 car has a carbon-fibre honeycomb composite monocoque. "The McLaren Mercedes represents a car that can still be track driven and supported by the original factory teams as part of individual Heritage departments," states Sothe

F1 cars in auctions are a rarity which is also what could make this particular model hotly fought for. Hamilton's F1 cars for Mercedes-AMG, his current employers, are mostly kept by the team. "While client confidentiality precludes disclosing exactly how many exist in private ownership, it’s believed to be only a scarce few," the listing states. "Formula 1 and RM Sotheby’s have created the ground-breaking concept to sell this incredible car live while it is being driven around the historic Silverstone circuit at speeds in excess of 150 mph."
