Amalgam 1:8 scale McLaren F1 GTR Le Mans winner 1995
This fine 1:8 scale model of the McLaren F1 GTR is of the Ueno Clinic sponsored #59 car that emerged victorious at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1995; it was a legendary and shocking victory against the purpose-built and much faster prototypes. The car itself was a development chassis, named 01R, entered at the last minute for the Kokusai Kaihatsu Racing team, who needed a car after originally being allocated 08R, which was instead used to replace a Gulf that had been crashed heavily in an accident at the 4 Hours of Jarama. By any standards, the 1995 race was an epic. The weather was appalling – it rained for 16 of the 24 hours – but the trio of Yannick Dalmas, Masanori Sekiya and JJ Lehto impressed, particularly the latter whose relentless pace saw him posting lap-times up to 20 seconds faster than his rivals. The #59 car crossed the finish line one whole lap ahead of the Courage C34 prototype of Mario Andretti, going down in folklores of Le Mans history as one of the greatest stories. 01R has remained in the ownership of McLaren ever since and is proudly displayed on the Boulevard at the McLaren Technology Centre.
