McLaren MP4/1C 1st Place at Long Beach Grand Prix 1983
During the 1983 season of Formula 1, the McLaren MP4B was updated to the MP4/1C. Most of its opponents were switching to turbocharging late in the season, while the MP41/C continued to race on the outdated Ford/Cosworth DFV V8 motor. This led to the team being less competitive, as the MP4/1C's motor was too outdated to race against the new turbocharged V6 motors. The MP4 McLaren was very innovative, being the first Formula One race car to utilize carbon fiber composite construction. The use of carbon fiber revolutionized Formula 1 race cars, and soon after competitors started copying McLaren's footsteps.
This MP4/1C model is produced by Spark Models. Perfect for diehard fans of McLaren, classic Formula 1 aficionados, or Marlboro livery collectors.
