The man's efforts as a racing driver, engineer and designer, as well as as a team owner allowed his company to survive and now McLaren is turning 50. To celebrate its half-a-decade anniversary, the automaker is introducing a new series of short films.
The first clip is called "Courage" and brings us 3 minutes and 38 seconds of genius work coming from director Marcus Söderlund.
The video allows us to see McLaren returning to the scene of his accident and explaining us the principles that back up his company in a way that deserves our applauds.
“This is Bruce McLaren's film. I love that Bruce McLaren is revisiting his crash-site, like an angel from a Frank Capra movie. The script for this film made me shiver and I wanted to recreate that feeling. I wanted to fill the film with emotions. This is how I imagine that Bruce McLaren looked at the world,” the director explains.
