HAUTE AUTO: You’ve probably never seen a McLaren F1 car — well, because fewer than 70 of the rare autos were designated as street legal in the U.S. But Herb Chambers, owner of New England’s largest automobile group, the Herb Chambers Cos., has one. In fact, it was the first imported into the U.S., and now he’s putting the 1995 McLaren F1, No. 044, up for auction with Bonhams, Quail Lodge Auction, in Carmel, Calif., beginning Aug. 18.

To get an idea of the price tag for one of these babies, McLaren reported in 2013 that an FI was auctioned in Pebble Beach for $8.47 million.

A peek at the snazziness: It can hit a top speed of 234 mph, boasts gold insulating foil around the engine bay and has twin Kevlar fans to create something called downforce. Just know it looks really, really cool.

 

AAAND: ACTION: Young — and we mean young — filmmakers rejoice: Forbes announced that it’s hosting a second annual Under 30 Short Film Festival as part of its Under 30 Summit in Boston, Oct. 1-4. Now through Aug. 18, they’re accepting short film submissions from creatives under the age of 30. All flicks must be submitted in one of four categories: animated, live action/theatrical, documentary and “shot on cellphone.” Judges from the movie biz, as well as Forbes’ media and entertainment reporter Madeline Berg and associate editor Natalie Robehmed, will weigh in on the films, announcing the winners for each category on Sept. 15.

 

WE ARE FAMILY: In what-are-the-odds news, Vermont U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders and “Curb Your Enthusiasm” creator — and Sanders impersonator — Larry David are related. According to Billboard, Henry Louis Gates Jr., the host of “Finding Your Roots” on PBS, says the show “couldn’t have scripted” the discovery any better. The episode where the two learn they’re distant relatives will air on the show’s upcoming fourth season, premiering Oct. 3. Gates said Sanders and David share “identical DNA” of three chromosomes and “that’s a lot of matches.” And a lot of comedy material.
