Step back in time and relive the glory days of Formula 1 with a poster dedicated to the McLaren M23. Designed in 1973 by Gordon Coppuck and Team McLaren, the M23 combines the best of two worlds - featuring the monocoque of the 1972 Indy 500-winning M16B and the suspension of the M19 F1 car. Its revolutionary Cosworth DFV engine, used as a fully stressed member, propelled this machine to unprecedented heights.

Liveried in Yardley colours, the M23 made an impressive debut in the 1973 season, scoring its maiden victory and eventually clinching three more wins. With drivers like Denny Hulme, Peter Revson, Emerson Fittipaldi, and James Hunt behind the wheel, this car left an indelible mark in Formula 1 history. Fittipaldi's consistency in 1974 earned him his second world championship, while Hunt's resilience and determination led him to a nail-biting championship victory in 1976.
