Video: Senna’s 91 McLaren Honda V12 Fired Up For First Time in 20 Years

In this video, legendary late Formula 1 driver Aryton Senna’s 1991 McLaren Honda MP4/6 3.5 liter V12 was recently fired up for the first time in 20 years. He used the land bound missile to win 7 races in 1991, therefore clinching the World Championship that year. Is it just us, or would you also agree that Senna represented the tale end of the golden era of F1? Before you make your own conclusion, listen to this engine while looking at the design of the chiseled vintage race car’s body and chassis, then compare it to today’s phallic nose F1 cars cluttered with billboard advertisements and overly complicated technology. Is there really any comparison? For us, quicker is not necessarily always better…

Below is Senna in Belgium during the 1991 race.
