1/43 Highspeed casting of the 1996 McLaren F1-GTR

I’ve been a lurker here for a couple of months now having discovered this site via Instagram and Sn210 was kind enough to get me on board here today. I live in India and am a newbie collector. I (try to) collect cars that have interesting stories associated with them and post my photos of them on Instagram (my handle is superstarksa).

Today being a Monday, I thought one of my 1/43 Mclarens would be a fitting subject for my 1st post here. This McLaren F1 GTR is one such. This was the last short tail F1 GTR that McLaren ever built. Designated chassis 18R, it was painted with the #38 FINA livery, identical to the car that finished 11th overall at the 1996 24Hours of LeMans race.

This is a Highspeed casting that I bought off AliExpress for $10.
