Great Article by Simplify3d on the car



Aggressive driving

This car honors arguably the greatest Formula One driver ever, three-time world champion Ayrton Senna, and his iconic 1993 McLaren MP-4/8 which he drove under both the McLaren/Marlboro red and white livery. If you have never heard of Ayrton Senna I highly recommend watching the documentary Senna (also check out the movie Amy by the same director)–it’s an amazing story of an amazing man who inspired the nation of Brazil and the world with his amazing driving. You can also watch this quick clip that Top Gear did a few years ago about Senna.

I always loved this car. It is completely new car, an evolution of the RS-01 chassis that I built last month—this is the first unique car to emerge from the RS-01 chassis family and the first to be released… Being that it’s Senna’s car, I’m sure it will be outstanding in the rain, and do unworldly pole qualifying laps. :)

RS-01 chassis information can be found here:

I loved making this car; I hope that you enjoy printing and building it just as much.
