Daniel Ricciardo finally says good-bye to last remnants of time at McLaren

Daniel Ricciardo is currently sat on the side lines of Formula 1, having joined Red Bull as a reserve driver after he was dropped by McLaren at the end of 2022.

Daniel Ricciardo is parting ways with his McLaren 720S Spider, eager to move on from his disappointing end to his time with the Formula 1 team. 

The Australian driver’s car is now available for purchase through McLaren New Forest in the UK, with an asking price of £217,450 (around $272,000). 

While it is known that Ricciardo drove the car throughout the 2022 season, it is unclear whether he personally bought it or received it as a gift from McLaren. Regardless, the car is now in search of a new owner.

One of the most striking features of the mid-engined supercar is its vibrant Lantana Purple exterior. This eye-catching colour is perfectly complemented by a set of 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels sporting an elegant gunmetal grey design, along with bright yellow brake calipers.
