Description

"It could be argued that the most famous Formula One racing car designer is Gordon Murray. He certainly was instrumental in assisting Ayrton Senna, Nelson Piquet and Alain Prost to Formula One glory and was the brains behind the McLaren F1 road car. His early years were spent designing Brabham F1 cars under Bernie Eccleston, many of which became World Championship and Constructors Grand Prix winners.
Supplied with the original Brabus order form invoicing McLaren with Gordon Murray as the first customer in 2001, there are numerous additional extras. These include ‘Murray of Athol Ancient tartan’ driver’s seat and door cards, Brabus ‘Wide-Star’ wheels and arches, sports exhaust and F1 paddle-shift gear change. Most striking of all, of course, is the Lamborghini green paintwork costing over £5,000. With a full page of extras, the total cost exceeds £24,000 and includes a Gordon Murray signed tacho. This is all backed up with a comprehensive history folder including owner’s pack, a fresh service and a full MoT test certificate."
