1988 McLaren MP4/4
As driven by Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna during the 1988 Formula 1™ season. The Honda-powered MP4/4 is one of the most iconic and dominant Formula One cars ever built, winning all but one race (15 out of 16) and claiming all but one pole position in the 1988 season. It was the car that powered Senna to his first world championship title.
1991 McLaren MP4/6
During the 1991 season, this was driven by the then-reigning World Champion Ayrton Senna and Gerhard Berger, and was considered by some to be the most competitive car ever at the time, taking eight wins and 10 pole positions, and scored 148 points, with Senna winning his third and final world championship title.
1998 McLaren MP4-13
In the 1998 F1™ season, the MP4-13 was driven by Mika Häkkinen and David Coulthard and again proved to be the dominant car of the season, with Häkkinen winning his first Drivers' Championship, and McLaren's securing their first constructor's title since 1991.
2008 McLaren MP4-23
The MP4-23 was driven by Lewis Hamilton and Heikki Kovalainen in the 2008 season, and is notable for being the car in which Hamilton won his first World Drivers' Championship in dramatic fashion at the Brazilian Grand Prix by overtaking Toyota's Timo Glock on the final corner of the final lap of the final grand prix of the season, to claim the required 5th-place finish and win the Drivers' title by a single point from Ferrari’s Felipe Massa, and become at the time the youngest driver ever to win the title.
