If I say I'm a collector and I think it should be free, does that count?

Interesting piece of kit.

You know if I were you i'd actually look to contact McLaren to get some sort of idea of what it is.

If it is a rare piece then it would be fitting to have it placed in some sort of Senna collection etc.

Thanks for sharing it with us.

EDIT: Sorry it is late. I meant contact McLaren to get an idea of its value; whether there were numerous versions issued or if it is unique.

It has the McLaren official logo on it, but I think it may be something Honda might have released after the 88 title triumph.
