Check out this flashback to an interview of Elon Musk in 1999, when the young South African-born entrepreneur took delivery of a brand new McLaren F1.

The name Elon Musk is ubiquitous, and the man best known for being the CEO of companies such as Tesla, Space X and The Boring Company. But back in the year 1999, he sold his digital company, Zip2 – which enabled newspapers to publish their print digitally – for $400,000,000.
