Default McLaren F1's in the states?

I know there were only 107 made. 65 of the street, 42 for racing. Anyone know where to find, or know themselves how many are in the states and which ones theyre in?

Yup, Jay Leno has one. I think his is the XP4, where they had the red stripe on the sides.

The one in Arizona that was "painted a sunset orange", is actually a factory color that they used for the last few models in the last production year (1998).

And Ameritech is the company that "legalizes" McLaren F1's for State-side roads, so the guy who supposedly owns that company who has an F1 is probably the guy whose F1 was used in the Road & Track articles in '97 and '98: his is the one with the McLaren F1 windshield banner and he has that Christian "fish" symbol on the rear grille by the license plate. Pretty cool if you ask me.

I've spotted one a few years ago in Danvers, MA. It was blue and going into a business park on rt 114. I almost messed my pants when I saw the guy sitting in the middle of the car.

Then they hopped in and drove off.
