McLaren approached Unique & Limited to help celebrate the defining moment of James Hunt’s career: the Japanese Grand Prix of 1976, where he secured his only world title. This special artwork is part of a limited edition of only 1000 prints and the set depicts Hunt’s McLaren M23.
Battered and bruised by the adverse weather conditions of the race, the M23’s quality still shone through as it took Hunt to third place on the day – and first place in the drivers’ standings. This artwork marks the 40th anniversary of James Hunt’s World Championship victory.
James Hunt – Blueprint
This artwork depicts blueprint annotations of Hunt’s McLaren M23. Of the car, Freddie Hunt, James’ son, said: “That was a hell of a chassis. It was one of the most successful chassis McLaren ever made in terms of longevity – I think it ran for five seasons, so I’m sure Dad was very happy with it.”

James Hunt – Quote
This poster features the exact font used on James Hunt’s iconic black helmet – with the same scuffs and scratches that could be seen on race day in Japan. There is also a quote that truly sums up Hunt’s performance in Fuji. “If I get into a car on a circuit, I drive as fast as I can. That’s it.”
This is not the only nod to James Hunt in recently with the James Hunt special Mclaren P1 GTR being let loose at Goodwood FOS.
