The McLaren happens to be one of the most iconic single-seaters in the history of Formula 1, either because of its dominance during the 1988 season, because of the drivers who drove it, because of the team that put it on the track, or because of the sponsor. If, for whatever reason, you have in mind to make one of the many models of this model, available in all scales, or you simply want to admire even the smallest details, nothing better than this 32-page A4-size MFH publication. 240 full color photos, both running and static. What a document!

Additional details for the McLaren Honda MP4/4 reference / walkaround book:
The McLaren-Honda MP4/4 is one of the most successful Formula One cars of all time. Powered by Honda's RA168E 1.5-litre V6 turbo engine, and driven by Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna, it was used by McLaren in the 1988 season. It was one of the few new single-seaters introduced that season, with most teams, like Ferrari, Lotus, Arrows or Tyrrell using evolved versions of the previous season to focus on the development of new single-seaters for the 1989 season, when the use of turbocharged engines would be prohibited.
Honda thus changed its partner in F1, ceasing to equip Williams and starting to motorize McLaren single-seaters, whose TAG-Porsche engines had become obsolete.
The car was designed by American engineer Steve Nichols, with Gordon Murray, as technical director, in charge of liaising between the drawing office and the production section.
The combination of the MP4/4 chassis with the Honda engine became one of the most dominant Formula One cars ever built, winning all but one race of the 1988 season (the one held at the Monza circuit), as well as all but one of the pole positions (that of the GP held at Silverstone) and, of course, won both titles, with the drivers' title going to Ayrton Senna, with 8 wins to the 7 achieved by his teammate Alain Prost.
