1966 F1 McLaren M2B

9/11/2012. The Wheatcroft Collection - Donington Park - UK

To my mind this is the best looking car McLaren has ever built.
McLaren tried a Ford Indianapolis V8 engine but it was big and heavy and with a narrow rev range. They then turned to an Italian Serenissima V8, the Italians had F1 ambitions.
This engine was shorter on power but more compact.
Bruce McLaren scored a point with it at the British GP but the team returned to a Ford later in the season.
