I'm due a McLaren for Christmas this year, boss

In the interests of research for a project (honest), I recently had cause to look into slang terminology for different amounts of currency.

Which made me consider that if 'a Bernie' is worth £1 million (from Bernie Ecclestone's £1m loan to the Labour Party), then surely 'a McLaren' must now be worth $100 million...

A useful short hand denomination for hedge fund managers and oligarchs, no doubt.
