McLaren MP4 (1981-3) pictures

The McLaren MP4 (later called the MP4-1) was the first car with a carbon fibre chassis to race in Formula 1.

It was the first McLaren to carry the ‘MP4′ designation, which stands for McLaren Project 4.

The first version of the car won the British Grand Prix in 1981, and subsequent derivatives were used by McLaren in the next two seasons.
