Sale of McLaren F1 LM

What do the ClassicCarPrice Condition Ratings mean?
Unknown - prior to the sale we list all cars as of unknown condition; post-sale cars will be rated as unknown if we were not at the sale and insufficient photographs and information were provided by the auction house for us to rate a car's condition.

1 = either an outstanding original car, or a top-quality, recent restoration.

1-2 = in very good condition but with one or two less perfect areas; these are extremely presentable cars that have room for improvement.
2 = sound cars that run, but are in need of some attention to bring them up to top condition.

2-3 = cars that run, but need considerable cosmetic and/or mechanical work.

3 = these range from restoration projects to complete cars that need a considerable amount of work; they're unlikely to have an MOT.
