1996 McLaren Karts
•Manufactured by Zip
•Customised by McLaren
•Built for Ron Dennis and his family
•Complete with custom-built trailer

These four customised Zip karts were a 1996 birthday gift from McLaren to the company's CEO, Ron Dennis, and his family. Their special livery is based on that of the company's contemporary Mercedes-Benz powered Formula 1 cars. Built to the 'KF2' formula (without gearbox), there are two 'adult' karts powered by 100cc (30bhp) engines, and two child's 'cadet' karts powered by 50cc (5bhp) engines. Presented in effectively 'as new' condition, having not been used, they come complete with a unique custom-built trailer by A Smith of Great Bentley, Essex, which is equipped with a generator and compressor and can accommodate all four karts and their associated spares. Also included in the sale are four spare engines, two replacement chassis, four sets of racing overalls, six helmets, several boxes of other spare parts, and the aforementioned generator and compressor. Never intended for public sale, this unique quartet of karts represents a wonderful opportunity for the karting enthusiasts to acquire a ready-made racing team possessing a direct link to McLaren.

McLaren Karts

•Hergestellt von Zip
•Von McLaren personalisiert
•Für Ron Dennis und seine Familie gebaut
•Mit maßgeschneidertem Anhänger

Diese vier personalisierten Zip Karts waren 1996 ein Geburtstagsgeschenk von McLaren an den CEO, Ron Dennis und seine Familie. Die Farbgebung entspricht der der zeitgenössischen, von Mercedes-Benz angetriebenen Formel 1 Rennwagen. Aufgebaut nach der 'KF2'-Formel (ohne Getriebe), besteht das Set aus zwei Karts für Erwachsene, die jeweils von einem 100 ccm Moto mit 30 PS angetrieben werden, und zwei 'Cadet' Karts für Kinder mit 5 PS-leistenden 50 ccm Motoren. Die Karts werden quasi im Neuzustand angeboten und wurden noch nie benutzt. Das Set wird komplettiert durch einen maßgeschneiderten Anhänger der Firma A Smith aus Great Bentley in Essex, der mit einem Generator und Kompressor ausgestattet ist und Platz für alle vier Karts nebst Ersatzteilen bietet. Ebenso Teil des Paketes sind vier Ersatzmotoren, zwei Ersatz-Fahrgestelle, vier Renn-Overalls, sechs Helme sowie weitere Ersatzteilkisten und der schon erwähnte Generator und Kompressor. Dieses Set war nie für den Verkauf gedacht und bietet dem Kart-Liebhaber die einmalige Gelegenheit, ein fertiges Rennteam mit direkter Verbindung zu McLaren zu erwerben.
