Time to update your update. Confirmation from McLaren Automotive that the HS Edition *IS* for a client of McLaren Spec Ops. See latest response to @torquespeak on Twitter.
Well, sort of.
He has an AeroMax, which is the coupe.
The car above is technically called the 'Aero SuperSports'.
Even the relatively high mileage (5,000m+) Veyrons I've seen are still only a whisker under £700k.
Where have you been looking?
The guy in the baseball cap is NOT the buyer. The buyer is the gentleman in the light blue shirt behind him drinking a coke. And the shorter man wearing the black shirt is London Ferrari dealer Joe Macari, who encouraged his client to bid.
Er... where are you getting this info? My understanding is that plans are already underway to get the car back to the UK in a private deal between the two bidders.
