Unfortunately we saw this coming ...
One of the most notorious cars in the world is the McLaren F1, not attached to any other than El Chapo. While Mexican drug lord Joaquin Guzman was known for his ruthless methods of transporting products, the man also became famous for escaping prison twice. However, he was eventually overthrown and hopefully will not escape prison a third time. With all the tremendous wealth the man and his inner circle have acquired, they have passed him off on a lavish lifestyle, including what many consider the ugliest McLaren F1 that an Ed Bolian supercar is simply obsessed with.

Bolian has been chasing the British supercar for a while and worries about how great it would be to own it. Most people don't want to be more than a mile from McLarens as it is an El Chapo government asset.
One look at chassis 39 immediately tells you why people aren't interested in the F1. It's a Brazilian metallic brown over red leather with gold wheels. Simply put, the car is sticky. In fact, it looks so bad that the original owner, former McLaren CEO Ron Dennis, had to sell it and order another one for himself because his wife absolutely hated it.

It appears that this car's draw is two-fold for Bolian. He's probably intrigued by the crazy history of the McLaren F1, just like how people buy cars that used to belong to Mick Jagger or someone else who probably did wild things to them. The other is that since the supercar is hot as countless law enforcement agencies seek, the supercar's value is far less than other McLaren F1's.
Sounds crazy, but Bolian is trying to get a deal on a vehicle he couldn't otherwise afford. Well, in the video, the man explains how someone recently approached him claiming he owned the supercar and was interested in getting a deal. It's a pretty insane story that is best told by Bolian himself.
