McLaren's MP4/4 was perhaps the most successful Formula 1 car ever built. In the hands of Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost, it totally dominated the 1988 season, winning all but one of the 16 races. The MP4/4 was a superb coming together of a brilliant chassis design and the best engine, plus two of the greatest drivers of any era, McLaren had an unbeatable combination.

Ayrton would later say of his MP4/4: "To be successful, you must have everything...a good engine and a good car. That is what McLaren gave me. The best car I drove in my career, by far."

    After building the 1/8 MP4/23 from DeAGostini I didn't think there would be a model kit on offer in this scale with the same amount of detail but I was proven wrong in every way. The Senna MP4/4 has an amazing amount of detail not seen before in this scale that adds to the authenticity of such an iconic car. The easy to follow instructions allow even a novice builder to complete this stunning F1 car in stages that build up to an amazing 1/8 scale replica.
