McLaren MP4/4 - Limited Edition
The McLaren MP4/4 was a highly successful Formula 1 car that competed in the 1988 Formula One season. It was designed by American engineer Steve Nichols, with assistance from the team's Technical Director Gordon Murray.
It is one of the most dominant Formula One cars ever built, winning all but one race and claiming all but one pole position in the 1988 season.
McLaren secured the 1.5L V6 Honda turbo engines, one of the most powerful in F1 at the time. Team boss Ron Dennis had previously tried to secure Honda engines for his Formula 2 team and welcomed the Japanese company after four successful years with the TAG engines.
Steve Nichols went ahead with the design of the car on a purely turbo engine basis, which put the team at a distinct advantage over their rivals.
