Description

McLaren M6A was a car from the 1969 Hot Wheels Grand Prix series.

The real life McLaren M6A was developed by Bruce McLaren for the 1967 Can-Am season. Its first race was at Road America where Bruce qualified first with pole position and a new lap record. Bruce's teammate Denny Hulme's McLaren M6A was able to win the race. Bruce and Denny continued to win in every race that season with Bruce claiming the 1967 Can-Am Challenge Cup, with Denny ranked second (only three points behind).

The Hot Wheels McLaren M6A featured an opening rear hatch, showing a detailed engine. The car was packaged with a sticker sheet with Bruce's #4 and a 'Collector's Button'. They were produced in a variety of Spectraflame colors, as well as Orange enamel to represent Bruce McLaren's real car. Most McLaren M6As have black interiors, but some have been found with brown. The McLaren M6A was produced at the USA and Hong Kong factories. The differences between the factories are that USA cars have clear glass and a flat base while HK cars have blue glass and 4 square holes in the base.
