30 years

30 years
It's year 1988, the Formula 1 World Championship starts, and McLaren fits the carbon monocoque of its lightweight with a Honda 1500cc V6 engine with two turbos that generated 685 horsepower. This machine is considered by car experts as the best F1 in history. Awesome!!!

30 years have passed since the birth of this mechanical wonder, and Alain Prost said the very day he could test it: "This car is going to be fast as hell". The MP4/4 won 15 of the 16 races of 1988, with 10 doubles in 1st and 2nd position and 15 poles, leading 1,003 of the 1,031 laps of the whole championship. Prost wasn't wrong at all :)

The whole SpotModel team wish you a happy birthday, rocket!! :D
