Mclaren Ford MP4/8
Pushing Technology Beyond the Limits
Upon its 1993 debut in South Africa, the world was introduced to the McLaren Ford MP4/8 - a combination of aerodynamically superior, high-nosed form and the Ford HB V8 engine. The car employed a number of cutting edge technologies of the age, such as active suspension and a semi-automatic transmission that allowed for optimal gear control tailored to the circuit. It took A.Senna to 5 Grand Prix victories that season, and teammate M.Andretti to a podium finish in Italy.
