Book Description

20 Sep 2013
Whether you are a fan of McLaren the company or McLaren the man, there is a lot to celebrate between the pages of this elegantly designed book that contains numerous historic and never-before-seen photographs. Tracing Bruce McLaren's early success on the racetrack, it also follows his career as the engineer behind some of the world's fastest cars and the incredible legacy of speed and performance that he left behind. Lavishly illustrated and featuring exclusive interviews with Patty McLaren-Brickett, Martin Whitmarsh, Niki Lauda, Alain Prost and Jenson Button, along with key members of the McLaren team across the decades, this unique, definitive and beautiful book is as much a pleasure to read as it is to flick through.

Product Description


Never has there been a book quite like this one, outlining the full team history in photos and words. The result is an insightful and probably the most complete account of the team's story. … The book brings the reader inside the McLaren team in ways that even the best journalist access cannot guarantee. --The New York Times, 20 September 2013

While the book covers the team's beginnings and continued success today, the days of the rivalry are the leading attraction. --Wall Street Journal, 29 December 2013

Through a combination of the words of revered F1 journalist Maurice Hamilton and wonderful archive photography, it tells the history of the team. --Sport, 6 September 2013

For the collection, a must have.
Lavishly produced, quality text by all the main players, very nicely and generously illustrated, many new photos, worth indulging in when time alone.
Pricey, but worth it when otherwise no longer available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 17 April 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If in doubt because of the price tag - please be assured. Some pics I'd seen before but the majority were new to me (and I've been following F1/McLaren since the early 70's). The text is OK but you don't buy these books as a bed-time read. Liked it lots!

I have to say the husband was very excited when he opened this. He's passionate about motor racing and thought the pictures were great. Is also enjoying reading it. A book to cherish once read.

4.0 out of 5 stars McLaren: 50 Years of Racing - Xmas Present 22 Dec 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Looks as described although tightly sealed therefore cannot see inside the book without breaking the cellophane seal first. As it is for a Christmas present will have to hope everything is ok once it is opened. Delivery was very prompt.
