1972 Mclaren M8F

Classic Sports Car - - Peter Bradfield Ltd -

Be­tween 1966 and 1974 the ‘Canam’ Chal­lenge en­cour­aged the pro­duc­tion of some of the most pow­er­ful rac­ing cars ever built. By 1967 Mcclaren had be­come dom­i­nant and went on to win five con­sec­u­tive ti­tles.

The iconic Mclaren M8F cou­ples ef­fec­tive aero­dy­nam­ics and com­pli­ant han­dling with at least 800 bhp from an alu­minium 8.8 litre Chevro­let V8. Chas­sis 09/72 re­turned to the UK in 1981 and has been in its fa­mous JCB liv­ery since 2012. With its blis­ter­ing per­for­mance and re­li­a­bil­ity Andy Ne­wall of Gelscoe Mo­tor­sport has achieved more pole po­si­tions, fastest laps, class wins and out­right vic­to­ries with it than any of the com­pe­ti­tion. At Good­wood Fes­ti­val of Speed the car has achieved four con­sec­u­tive class wins. In 2015 at Hock­en­heim its top speed has been recorded at 208 mph.

Of­fered for sale in race ready con­di­tion with a huge in­ven­tory of spares and el­i­gi­ble for the 2018 ‘Pre 80 En­durance Se­ries’
