McLaren Honda MP 4/6 Japanese GP 1991 G.Berger #2, with McLaren Logo in 1:18 scale


This is the McLaren Honda MP 4/6 Japanese GP 1991 G.Berger #2, with McLaren Logo in 1:18 scale by AUTOart.

The McLaren Honda MP4/6, driven by Gerhard Berger at the 1991 Japanese Grand Prix, became an emblematic moment in Formula 1. Berger, an Austrian racing ace, showcased his exceptional skills during this race. The uniqueness of the event lies in the climactic showdown between Berger and his teammate Ayrton Senna, who was in contention for the championship. Despite Senna's relentless pursuit, Berger delivered an outstanding performance, securing victory in a race that would ultimately be pivotal in determining the championship outcome. The McLaren Honda MP4/6's technical prowess, combined with Berger's driving finesse, marked the 1991 Japanese Grand Prix as a defining chapter in Formula 1 history, solidifying the McLaren team's dominance during that era.

AUTOart's latest innovation in composite and diecast models, or exquisitely crafted replicas made from a hybrid of different materials that have been selected and engineered to produce both the supreme finish detail and high value our collectors demand. Model making will never be the same. In composite models, AUTOart pairs a die-cast interior with a newly developed injection Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), a thermoplastic polymer with special blend of different materials for reinforcement of the body, utilizing the benefits of both materials to create the highest quality models our company has ever produced. Injection ABS composite material has shown itself to be an ideal material to form the body of a model car. Compared to our old body material, die-cast zinc, injected-ABS composite material surfaces, with correct formulation, are smoother and the bodylines and creases are sharper. The openings for vents and holes are also reproduced more cleanly, and the panels can be much thinner when rendered in ABS composite material than in zinc alloy. That makes the finished body closer to the true scale gauge of real car bodies.
