As the F1 circus rolls into Emilia Romagna and Imola for the second F1 race of the 2021 season, we look forward to another close fought battle. This week we are privileged to showcase further very rare items available from the McLaren F1 road car collection sourced direct from one of Gordon Murray’s seniors as well as further highly desirable collectibles.
Exclusively available from MM we have a GTR technicians manual used by the race team including intricate details of set up options for gearing, wings, safety, instrumentation settings, as well as in depth analysis of downforce options and braking/ cooling.
For the person who has (almost) everything, we offer an unused wheel nut in red anodised alloy that was a spare from the McLaren F1 GTR chassis 01R Le Mans winning car of 1995, offered with a Le Mans badge and 1995 programme and letter of authentication direct from the McLaren senior.
Equally rare, but at a smaller budget level we have a selection of period road test reports relating to the McLaren F1 roadcar presented in a bespoke McLaren F1 folder.
We also have an original McLaren “GT Longtail” brochure from 1997. Only 3 road GT versions (inc 1x prototype) were made and this sales brochure was only commissioned to ensure that the car qualified as being offered for sale as a road going car as part of the homologation rules at the time.
From the McLaren F1 team, we offer a rare and original 1994 steering wheel by Personal of Italy from the MP4/9 Peugeot engined car driven by Martin Brundle and Phillippe Alliot. It is reference pictured in the cockpit of Brundle’s 1994 MP4/9 car and features dummy clutch and gearshift paddles and switches retro fitted by McLaren and is framed ready for display.
From the world of MotoGP, we have a wonderful factory replica of 9 times World Champion Valentino Rossi’s helmet uniquely worn at the 2015 Goodwood Festival of Speed by AGV / Drudi. Brand new and boxed this piece will grace any serious motorsport collection.
