    Default Adrian Newey selling his 288 GTO

    Mclaren F1 designer (or rather ex-Mclaren) Adrian Newey is selling his 288 GTO at the Bonhams Gstaad auction. A nice Christmas present for someone...

    See here http://www.bonhams.com/cgi-bin/publi...&iSaleNo=13164 Some nice Ferraris to chose from including Albert Uderzo's (Asterix cartoonist and ex-Ferrari Club de France President) F40.

    If anyone cares, Newey also had a BB, but I don't know if he still has it.

    Damn that F40LM is nice, 850-900 Bhp, Laps quicker than a McLaren F1 GTR

    Newey is the master in modern race car design.

    Which team is he at now? And who's designing the new Mclarens?

    He has signed for Red Bull. I don't think Mclaren have hired any direct replacement, so I assume their new car will be designed by their existing team.

    Incidentally, Newey also races his GT40 from time-to-time.
