Looks like a Ford Cosworth engine - and looks like McLaren configuration to me. M19 or M7a?? (I am dreaming). The teammanger looks like the one from the Senna McLaren kits.

Intake trumpets look to small for a V8 to my eye, I'd go V12. Matra maybe?

I've been hoping to see MFH model the 1973 Matra 670B's for years now. They could do the short tailed sprint race version, and the long tailed LM cars.

I don't think it's a Matra. The intake stacks in the picture seem joined whereas I don't remember seeing that on a 650, 670 etc.. So as much as I would hope for that... I don't think it is. And judging by the colours it'll be a Macca. The M8D / E / F of CanAm fame are out due to their odd length intake stacks.
So how about the oddball 1970 Mclaren Alfa Romeo M7D formula car?
Cheers,

The Brabham BT49 is one of very few championship winning cars never to have been properly kitted. Likewise FW08.

That style of trumpets only seemed to come in in the mid/late 1970s.

761 Monza 1976 would be excellent! Likewise Hesketh.
