Any chance of the next version of this fabulous car having the Lamborghini 3512 V12? From what both Senna and Hakkinen said, the McLambo was an absolute weapon.

First of all i think this mod by WCP is quite interesting, because it has a mix of very good cars, even those, like the 95 Ligier, that never won a GP. But most of all because every car has it's historical relevance: the Ferrari F310, for instance, was the first F1 Ferrari to be driven by Michael Schumacher and to use the new 3.0L V10 engine; The McLaren MP4-8 was the car in wich Ayrton Senna achieved his final GP win and the last he drove for McLaren before moving to Williams, for wich team he raced only on three GP's, one of them the last of his life; The Williams-Renault FW-15C was arguably the most advanced F1 car that ever raced, but also the one in wich Alain Prost raced for the last time before retiring, winning his 4th World Drivers Championship.
