The McLaren-Honda MP4/4 is widely regarded as one of the most dominant Formula One cars of all-time. Designed by Steve Nichols, Gordon Murray, and Neil Oatley, the MP4/4 was used by the McLaren team during the 1988 F1 season. The car was powered by a turbocharged Honda V6 engine and driven by two legends — Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost.
The MP4/4 won 15 of the 16 races it entered, and took both the drivers’ and constructors’ championships in the hands of Senna and Prost. The car was praised for its exceptional handling and superior performance, as well as its stunning silver and red livery. The MP4/4 is still revered as a classic of F1 engineering and design.
