Niki’s 1984 Championship winning McLaren MP4/2, 1.5 Litre, 90° V6 TAG-Porsche turbo engine, 650 bhp in race set-up and up to 800 bhp in qualifying set-up i.e. with maximum turbo pressure

NIKI LAUDA (* 22. Februar 1949 in Wien; † 20. Mai 2019 in Zürich), an intelligent man, a street-fighter, a three-times racing world champion, his comeback after the accident at the Nürburgring stands as the most courageous act we’ve seen any sportsperson ever make.
