Driving Ambition is the de facto reference work relating to the McLaren F1 roadcar. The deluxe edition of Doug Nye’s opus has 410 pages (vs 272) and whilst 1000 copies were planned, only 500 were finally produced.
This example is #247 and comes complete with its outer box, white cotton gloves to handle the tome, all of the original extras including a fold out reproduction gearbox technical drawing, poster and illustration. The fly leaf has a signature block with original autographs of Ron Dennis, Gordon Murray and the sadly departed Mansour Ojjeh and the late Creighton Brown.
This example is in mint condition with its nubuck cover and case also is presented in original packaging. It weighs approx 11lbs and measures 13.5 x 13.5 x 2.5 inches (ex case and packaging).
A very rare and sought after piece.
