This popped up on my twitter account earlier. Autocar Magazine in the UK released a video of Nick Masons road-legal BMW powered McLaren F1 GTR around, what looks like Chobham test track in the UK. I believe an article appears in this week’s Autocar Magazine.
Despite what the video says, I don’t think ’10R’ is the most famous, by any means. I would suggest the 1995 Le Mans winning Ueno Clinic car or GTC Gulf cars would hold that ‘title’.
This car has recently had its yellow ’96 GTR’ launch livery re-applied. This was designed to announce the 1996 version of the GTR and needed to stand out on the page. I had real difficulty in coming up with a livery for the car which was already painted Red, so I asked the paint-shop at McLaren to cut me some ‘GTR’ stickers for my scale model….
…..I came back from lunch and a couple of GTR stickers were lying hap-hazard on my desk, on top of some elevation drawings. I thought that works, and that was that, onto the next project!
I do remember it was a pain for the guys to sticker though!
