Lewis Hamilton, who recently lost the world title to Max Verstappen, has decided to add the sale of his purple Pagani to his list of pro-environment activities.
The F1 champ bought the car in 2014. It’s one of six 760 series produced, but it only bears a special LH badge (a reference to the first owner’s initials). The car has so far been used only in the Principality of Monaco, where it was also registered.
The car is powered by a 7.3-liter V12 naturally aspirated engine that produces 760 horsepower and 780 Nm of torque. At Hamilton’s own request, the car was equipped with a six-speed manual gearbox.
In 2015, the car suffered a slight shock, but after a moment the car was repaired and returned to the hands of the Formula 1 driver.
It is not known exactly how much was sold or to whom Lewis Hamilton’s car went. It is estimated that its purchase in 2014 cost the star more than 1.5 million dollars.
