McLaren MP4/6 McLaren MP4/6

The first McLaren to be powered by a Honda V12 engine. The MP4/6 also used a manual "H" pattern gearbox and was the last Formula One car to win a World Championship, using a manual transmission or a V12 engine. Senna won the first four races of the season, USA, an emotional victory in Brazil, San Marino and Monaco before Williams FW14 dominated in the mid season. Consistent podium finishes throughout the year helped Senna. A botched pitstop and electronics problems ruined Williams chances in Belgium and Portugal allowing McLaren to take their fourth straight constructors championship and Senna his third and last drivers' championship.

The MP4/6 was considered by some to be the most competitive car in the field until Williams sorted the FW14, which was aerodynamically and technically more advanced.

True Scale Miniature's McLaren F1 GTR Celebrates McLaren 1995 Le Mans win

 McLaren first ran at Le Mans in 1995. It was assumed that the Le Mans Prototype class would easily dominate, since they were custom built racing cars with no relation to street cars like the McLaren F1 GTR. However various Le Mans Prototypes succumbed to difficulties and dropped down in the standings, while the McLaren F1 GTR continued on without difficulty. In the closing hours of the race, five McLaren F1 GTRs were still racing while only three Le Mans Prototypes remained. A close battle in the final hours saw the McLaren competing against the Courage Compétition prototype, with the F1 GTR finally taking the win. Other McLarens finished 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 13th overall, with only two F1 GTRs failing to finish. The winning car, which was driven by Yannick Dalmas, Masanori Sekiya, and JJ Lehto, was retained by McLaren and never raced again.

Features removable bonnets to show the well detailed engine area, working suspension, authentic wheels/tires, and high quality paint and decoration. This model is a highly authentic variation on the highly regarded Carousel 1 tooling of Porsche 935 1:18 scale die-cast model . 

The Porsche 935 K3 was third in a line of 935 variants developed by Kremer Racing, and remains one of the most famous race cars designed to this day. Most identifiable by its unique body configuration, the Kremer 3 (K3) had a twin-turbocharged, 3.2 litre flat six-cylinder motor producing upwards of 740 to 800bhp.

But power alone would not be enough to battle the factory built 935’s so Kremer Racing focused on shedding weight. They replaced the factory fitted air-to-water intercooler with an air-to-air intercooler, replaced body panels with light weight composites, and implemented over 100 other upgrades. All these changes are thought to have only given the K3 935 a 1% performance increase over their factory built counterparts but that’s all that was needed. The 935 finally had its worthy adversary. 

This is is the Apple Computers car raced at Le Mans by Allan Moffat for Dick Barbour Racing
unfortunately they retired after 11hrs with a melted piston. Allan Moffat later drove a Mazda RX 7 at Lemans and finished 14th in 1982

The Porsche 936 was built to compete in the World Sportscar Championship as well as at 1976 24 Hours of Le Mans under the Group 6 formula, both of which it won. From 1976 to 1981, the factory entered Porsche 936 won the 24 Hours of Le Mans three times with Jacky Ickx (76, 77, 81), thus each of the three original chassis won once. 
The open top, two seater spyder was powered by an air-cooled, two-valve 540 hp (403 kW) single-turbocharger flat-6 engine with 2140 cc. The spaceframe chassis was based on the 917, with many of the parts also coming from that car.

Ayrton Senna da Silva, three-time Formula One world champion, is regarded as one of the greatest F1 drivers. He died in a crash while leading the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix. Senna began his motorsport career in karting, moving up to open-wheel racing in 1981, and winning the British Formula 3 championship in 1983. He made his Formula One debut with Toleman-Hart in 1984 before moving to Lotus-Renault the following year and winning six Grands Prix over the next three seasons. In 1988, he joined Frenchman Alain Prost at McLaren-Honda. Between them, they won all but one of the 16 Grands Prix that year and Senna his first World Championship. Prost claimed the championship in 1989, and Senna his second and third championships in 1990 and 1991. In 1992, the Williams-Renault combination began to dominate Formula One. Senna nonetheless managed to finish the 1993 season as runner-up, winning five races and negotiating a move to Williams in 1994.

Ford Cosworth DFV V8 F1Engine

TSM11AC03 Sold out !

 

The Cosworth Ford DFV Formula 1 engine has a history as interesting as the cars it powered.DFV stood for Double Four Valve, "Double" as it was a V8 development of the earlier, four-cylinder FVA Kent engine use in the Lotus Cortina. The V8s development in 1967 was sponsored by Ford for Colin Chapman's Team Lotus. The engine was a 
90-degree, 3 litre V8, and produced over 400 bhp at 9,000 rpm, with 370 Nˇm of torque at 7,000 rpm. In later development it reached over 500 bhp at 11,200 rpm by the end of its remarkable Formula 1 career 16 years later in 1983 when it was replaced by the DFY varient. It powered 12 Formula 1 drivers championships, 10 constructors Championships and won twice at Le Mans. 
Porsche 935 Turbo Engine

1:18 scale by True Scale Miniatures

TSM10AC12 Sold out ! The 935 engine was a 560 hp (420 kW) (at 7900 rpm) version of the regular 3.0 L flat-6, with 60 mkp torque at 5400 rpm. Boost was between 1,35 and 1,55, consumption of 52 litre per 100 km. Capacity was reduced to 2.85 L, and with the turbo charging penalty factor of 1.4, it fit into the 4.0 L class which had a prescribed minimum weight of only 970 kg (2,100 lb). Porsche, having lots of experience in light weight cars, had managed to get the Carrera RSR prototype under 800 kg. The empty 935 tipped the scales at 900 kg. The large turbocharger was used with mechanical fuel injection which caused turbo lag followed shortly by a fireball spitting from the exhaust and an enormous amount of power (up to 800 hp).

Senna captured his third title in 1991, taking seven wins. Senna won the first four races but by mid-season, Mansell in the more advanced Williams was able to put up a challenge. There were some memorable moments, such as at the Spanish Grand Prix when Senna and Mansell went wheel to wheel with only centimetres to spare, at over 320 km/h down the main straight, a race that the Briton eventually won. Quite a different spectacle was offered following Mansell's victory in the British Grand Prix at Silverstone. Senna's car had come to a halt on the final lap but he was not left stranded out on the circuit, as Mansell pulled over on his parade lap and allowed the Brazilian to ride on the Williams side-pod back to the pits. Though Senna's consistency and the Williams's unreliability at the beginning of the season gave him an early advantage, Senna insisted that Honda step up their engine development program and demanded further improvements to the car before it was too late. These modifications enabled him to make a late season push and he managed to win three more races to secure the championship.

Limited edition of only 500 peices

Sold out !

 The McLaren MP4/5 was loosely based on its 1988 predecessor, the all-conquering MP4/4. 1989 was the first year where naturally aspirated engines were compulsory for all teams after the banning of the turbocharged units at the end of the previous season. To this end, Honda built a 3.5 litre V10 engine, developed throughout most of the latter half of 1987 and through 1988. The MP4/5 was unveiled for pre-season testing and it was instantly on the pace, as well as reliable. Developed by Neil Oatley, the MP4/5 looked like the car to beat in the new season. McLaren took 10 victories during the season, 6 for Ayrton Senna and 4 for Prost. Although Senna won six races to Prost's four and usually finished ahead of the Frenchman in the races, accidents and car breakages meant that he had four fewer points-scoring finishes and finished 16 points behind his French rival in the championship. Senna and Prost's combined points total meant McLaren easily won their second straight constructors' championship.

TrueScale Miniatures 1:18 Tyrrell 006 Celebrates Jackie Stewart's 1973 Championship 
Derek Gardner's Tyrrell 006 design was a supremely quick machine and the combined talents of Jackie Stewart and Francois Cevert saw several wins and podium finishes through the season, though with Fittipaldi and Peterson in the equally competitive Lotus the constructors title went to Hethel. Stewart's wins were enough to secure the driver's championship though and the German Grand Prix on the Nurburgring saw a dominant display, Stewart leading his team mate home having driven away from the opposition from the start. 
    
Truescale's model captures the elegant shape of the car well and beneath the smartly finished bodywork we see plenty of engine, suspension and transmission detail to enjoy. A very smart addition to any large scale F1 collection.

The Bentley Speed 8 story - After three consecutive wins, the Audi factory team officially did not field a team, although several privateers did use R8 chassis. Bentley, with an Audi engine and support from Audi works team Joest Racing, won its first Le Mans title since 1930 in the Bentley Speed 8 and Danish driver Tom Kristensen set a record with his fourth straight victory. The Bentley team of David Brabham, Mark Blundell and Johnny Herbert finished second, ahead of the customer Audis.

The Bentley Speed 8, developed from the Bentley EXP Speed 8 was an Autosport Award Winning Le Mans Prototype race car that was designed by Peter Elleray. The EXP Speed 8 debuted in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2001 and won the race in 2003. It has a strong resemblance to and shares some technology with the Audi R8C, which had raced only once before Audi dropped the project to focus on the later dominant Audi R8. The EXP Speed 8 marked Bentley's return to racing after a 73-year absence.

All design, development and manufacturing for the Bentley was done by the English outfit, Racing Technology Norfolk (RTN), located in Norfolk, United Kingdom. Chief designer was Peter Elleray.

The engine from the Audi R8, a 3.6 litre V8 with turbocharger, was used as the initial powerplant in 2001. The six-speed gearbox was also not the typical Ricardo unit from the R8, but instead a custom unit developed by Xtrac. Bentley also chose to run on Dunlop tyres instead of the Michelins used by Audi.

Following its initial year of competition, the Audi-sourced V8 was modified to better suit the EXP Speed 8. This saw the engine expanded to 4.0 litres, producing approximately 600 hp. This would ultimately lead to Bentley redesigning the car for 2003, leading to the change of name to simply Speed 8. The flat front end was replaced with a raised crash box for a nose, while deep valleys ran between the nose and fenders. This required the addition of large horizontal bodywork between the nose and fenders to shroud the suspension arms of the Speed 8. The cockpit would also be tapered to allow for better airflow to the rear wing. Bentley also decided to switch to Michelin tyres for their 2003 campaign.
