McLaren M6 GT 1968-71 zu verkaufen

The M6GT was a road going development of the McLaren M6 Can-Am car. Nur 4 units of the M6 GT were ever produced – two painted red, another in yellow, and the last finished in the iconic McLaren Orange.

Bruce McLaren, who was always more than a driver, was ready to test his skill as an innovator, designer and entrepreneur. His intention was to build the fastest, highest quality and fastest accelerating road car in the world. Performance and manoeuvrability would be essential, but safety would also be central to Bruce’s design.

Der Wagen, a prototype M6GT registered as OBH 500H, was light, low, with a deafening sound and incredibly fast. Bruce used it to go to work and attend races. Its Bartz-adapted Chevrolet engine guaranteed brilliant performance, with an estimated top speed of 265 km / h and acceleration from 0 zu 160 km / h in just 8 Sekunden. The prototype also featured some unconventional features, such as retractable headlights that were raised and lowered manually thanks to a hole in the front of the canister. Sadly, the project to build 250 units died with Bruce, and the OBH 500H is just a testament to his vision. Yet 25 years later, Bruce’s supercar dream came true with Gordon Murray thanks to the mighty McLaren F1.

The engine was a 5.7 Die Ford-Einheit mit rund 370 PS und einem Fahrgestell war mit einer attraktiven Coupé-Karosserie aus verstärktem Polyesterharz ausgestattet.

Bruce’s underlying idea was to make a road car that could be easily modified to compete in the 1969 Group 4 sports car category – a car to compete with Ferrari, Porsche and Alfa Romeo – as well as to offer the fastest, schnellstes beschleunigendes und am besten handhabbares Straßenauto auf dem Markt. Der Prototyp von Bruce war gut für über 250 km / h mit einer Beschleunigungszeit von 0 bis 100 km / h von acht Sekunden.
When the FIA changed the homologation rules to require a minimum of 50 units to qualify for the race series it became too much of a commercial challenge for the young company, and Bruce’s tragic death at Goodwood in June 1970 effectively terminated the project. Trojan (McLaren’s partner for production of customer race cars) jedoch, hat drei M6GTs für Kunden gebaut. Es wäre fast so 20 years before the McLaren company would dream of producing another road car….but it would be worth the wait.

Nur einer wurde in der McLaren-Rennfabrik OBH 500H gebaut

The other 3 M6GTs were built by Trojan-Lambretta, the company that had the contract to build McLaren customer cars.

One of these was bought by David Prophet who raced it extensively.

After Bruce’s death, Denny Hulme bought his M6GT and shipped it back to New Zealand for display at the Museum of Transportation and Technology. Hulme was finally persuaded to sell the car in 1990 and it went to a businessman in San Francisco. Some time after this, the M6GT was acquired by the Mathews Collection.
