McLaren F1 GTR (1995 24 Hours of Le Mans Winner) - 1:18 Scale Diecast Model Car
The McLaren F1 is frequently acknowledged as history's greatest road car, but the model's crowning achievement was scored on the race track. In 1995, a GT1-spec F1 GTR running a detuned street engine claimed an improbable victory in a rain-soaked 24 Hours of Le Mans, defeating a slew of faster Prototype-class cars thanks to flawless reliability and sterling driving from Yannick Dalmas, Masanori Sekiya, and the great JJ Lehto (who often lapped the Sarthe circuit a full thirty seconds faster than his rivals). TSM's 1:18-scale replica of the legendary #59 McLaren F1 GTR is itself among the finest examples of diecast model Le Mans-winning cars. Its detail is exquisite, from its purposeful race cockpit to its magnificent 6.1-liter BMW V12 engine. This limited-edition model is certain to become the centerpiece of any motorsports-themed display.
SPECIFICATIONS: 1:18 scale (approximately ten inches in length). Diecast metal body, featuring opening hood, doors and engine cover. Limited edition of 3000 pieces.
PERFECT FOR: Collectors of Le Mans-winning race car models. McLaren fans. Underdogs.
