The car was designed by Neil Oatley around advanced electronics technology including a semi-automatic transmission, active suspension, two-way telemetry, and traction control systems, that were developed in conjunction with McLaren shareholder Techniques d’Avant Garde (TAG). It was powered by the 3.5-litre Ford HBD7 V8 engine and was the first McLaren to feature barge boards. Motorsport fans will remember vividly the yellow and green striped helmet of Ayrton Senna positioned in the car along with the Marlboro team livery. Seeing the profile of this MP4/8 replica evokes instant memories of courageous battles between Ayrton Senna in the underpowered McLaren and Alan Prost in the superior Williams Renault. Senna’s skill enabled him to win five races in 1993 eventually finishing second to Alan Prost in the Drivers Championship. Senna won the final round in Australia and McLaren would not score another win until four years later at the 1997 Australian Grand Prix, which was won by David Coulthard in the MP4/12. This was the final season for Senna with McLaren before signing with Williams in 1994. Offered here is an Mp4/8 F1 display car that is understood to have been constructed in 1993 for the team sponsor, Marlboro. A relatively lightweight full- size replica, beautifully finished with painted Marlboro livery that could easily be transported and displayed. In fact, this item would be ideal to mount on a wall or ceiling adding an instant focal point to any suitable area. Also forming part of the sale is a full-size 1993 Ayrton Senna replica race helmet to complete the package. Understood to have been manufactured for team sponsors, Marlboro, a faithful recreation of the iconic McLaren Formula 1 car from the 1993 season, Ayrton Senna’s final year with McLaren.
