McLaren-Honda MP4-30

Among the most technically advanced race cars ever created, the McLaren MP4-30 is powered by a Honda RA615H . . . H as in hybrid. Power produced “conventionally” by the turbocharged, direct injection 1.6 liter, V6 engine is augmented by the F1 Energy Recovery System (ERS) which harvests thermal energy from the turbo and braking systems, and delivers additional thrust through the Motor Generator Unit. No less innovative is the MP4-30’s chassis which features an exaggerated “Coke” bottle shape around the engine and transmission, aiding airflow to the diffuser, wings and other downforce-generating devices at the back of the car which, as with all current F1 cars, utilizes the Drag Reduction System when closely following another car in order to create additional overtaking opportunities.
