My friend in London who is in freight/cargo-sales arranged for a Mclaren F1 to be shipped (air-freight) from London Heathrow to LAX for an owner who had acquired the car for 500,000 GBP (the exchange rate at the time was 1.89 USD / 1 GBP ). This was back in April, I recall. I am not sure if it was a British/Euro-spec car, the associated taxes/tariffs, export fees, etc. I just know how much the car was worth (rather what it sold for, and that is was en'route to the 'States).
