Mclaren F1 designer (or rather ex-Mclaren) Adrian Newey is selling his 288 GTO at the Bonhams Gstaad auction. A nice Christmas present for someone...

See here http://www.bonhams.com/cgi-bin/public.sh/pubweb/publicSite.r?sContinent=EUR&screen=Catalogue&iSaleNo=13164 Some nice Ferraris to chose from including Albert Uderzo's (Asterix cartoonist and ex-Ferrari Club de France President) F40.

If anyone cares, Newey also had a BB, but I don't know if he still has it.

Damn that F40LM is nice, 850-900 Bhp, Laps quicker than a McLaren F1 GTR

Newey is the master in modern race car design.

Which team is he at now? And who's designing the new Mclarens?

Incidentally, Newey also races his GT40 from time-to-time.
