Not only did this car beat the 2nd place WSC class car (prototypes for that era), McLaren F1's took 4 of the top 5 spots in the race. 1995 was the year that the F1 was cemented in history.

This 1/18 scale model comes from TSM, who’s made it in a few other excellent liveries as well. It’s a wonderful model that gets everything just right.
