McLaren M6B (1968 Bridgehampton Can-Am Winner) - 1:18 Scale Model Car
1960s-era Can-Am racing is often remembered as the "Bruce and Denny Show," an era marked by the near-complete dominance of the factory McLaren team and drivers Denis Hulme and Bruce McLaren. However, every once in awhile, a plucky competitor would snatch victory from the all-powerful orange cars. Such was the case at the Bridgehampton Grand Prix in 1968, when the retirement of both factory McLaren M8As allowed the hard-charging "customer" M6B of Mark Donohue and Roger Penske Racing to claim a crucial win. Their beautiful Sunoco-liveried McLaren is now the subject of a stunning 1:18-scale resin replica by Tecnomodel, featuring exquisite paintwork and impressive detail. Of particular note are the intricate pinstriping and period-evocative script that grace the M6B's graceful bodywork, as well as faithfully rendered Goodyear tires and racing cockpit.
SPECIFICATIONS: 1:18 scale (approximately ten inches in length). Resin body, features no opening parts. Fixed-position steering. Comes with etched plaque and display base. Limited edition of 220 pieces worldwide.
PERFECT FOR: Can-Am enthusiasts. Mark Donohue fans. McLaren model collectors who are looking for a change from Papaya Orange.
