Watch: Young Elon Musk takes delivery of his first supercar McLaren F1
World's wealthiest person, Tesla CEO Elon Musk can afford any car that he wants today. But, his taste for cars wasn't questionable even 20 years ago and so wasn't his bank balance. In 1999, young Musk bought his first supercar - a McLaren F1.
A video recently posted on YouTube by CNN from its archives, shows the Tesla CEO taking delivery of his McLaren supercar with his newfound Silicon Valley riches. In the video, the entrepreneur calls it a "million dollar" supercar. He notes that there are only 62 such McLarens in the world and he'll be the owner of one of the rare supercars.

Musk can be seen super excited when the car arrives and also a bit emotional. "Just three years ago, I was showering at the YMC and sleeping on the office floor. And now, I’ve got a million-dollar car and quite a few creature comforts. It is a moment in my life," he tells CNN then.
