    SPR Models - 1:43 McLaren M2B Serenissima #14 British GP 1966

    We have just received stock of the Serenissima-engined McLaren M2B that Bruce drove to 6th place in the 1966 British Grand Prix. This is another high-quality 1:43rd scale resin model from the Spark range. Here are a few images to drool over...

    And for an explanation on why Bruce seems to be wearing Chris Amon's helmet, Spark again showing attention to detail. Amon was intended to drive the second McLaren M2B but difficulties with engine supply meant that the team never made the intended expansion to two cars. However James Garner's character Pete Aron's helmet and car livery in the film Grand Prix were modelled on Amon driving a McLaren, which caused the movie makers to have to encourage other cars to be painted in the 'Yamura' colours and other drivers (Bruce McLaren included) to wear Amon-style helmets.
