  • Barcode:
Explore 60 thrilling years of McLaren Formula 1 race cars in this handsome volume, complete with detailed specs, stunning photography, a foreword by twice World Champion Mika Häkkinen,and the full competition record for every car.

McLaren has been a top Formula 1 competitor and innovator since it fielded founder and driver Bruce McLaren’s first car, the M2B, in 1966. Just two years later, Bruce scored the team’s first grand prix win. Tragically, he was killed in 1970 while testing his Can-Am car at Goodwood.

Despite the heavy loss of its founder, McLaren carried on, scoring its first of twelve championships in 1974 with Emerson Fitipaldi. McLaren’s roster of F1 Champions includes such greats as James Hunt, Niki Lauda, Ayrton Senna, and modern master Lewis Hamilton.

Equally legendary are the cars themselves, including the:
 
  • 1960s M7A
  • 1970s M23
  • 1980s MP4/2
  • 1990s MP4/5
  • 2000s MP4-23
  • Today’s MCL 60

As the second longest-running team in F1 (surpassed only by Ferrari), McLaren holds twelve Drivers Championships and eight Constructor’s titles. 

McLaren Formula 1 Car by Car chronicles every McLaren Formula 1 car in chronological order, featuring an overview of each car’s significant features and evolution, its technical specifications, and its competition record accompanied by historic and contemporary images.

Featuring a Foreword from two-time F1 World Champion Mika Häkkinen, McLaren Formula 1 Car by Car details the amazing race cars and drivers that have cemented McLaren’s reputation as one of the most dominant manufacturers in F1 history making this book a must-have for every McLaren and F1 fan.

This is an updated edition of the original In Camera volume covering Formula 1 in the 1970s, and will appeal to all motor-racing enthusiasts and especially to new collectors of this bestselling series. Featuring full-color photographs by Rainer Schlegelmilch throughout, this beautifully illustrated and deeply nostalgic book examines the evolution of Grand Prix motor racing through one of its classic decades when the sport became increasingly commercial and high-tech. As always, Paul Parker provides his well-observed captions and overviews of each year.
