Maco SV 378 - Formula Super Vee


The Maco SV 378 - the only one of its kind

The Maco Super Vau 378 is a real rarity: it is the only Maco Super Vau ever built.

Maco stands for Maring Construction. The designer and builder of the Maco racing cars, Ernst Maring from Braunschweig, is one of the very few designers, alongside Jack Brabham, who was also able to win a championship as the driver of his own cars. In 1975, Ernst Maring won the German Formula 3 Championship with his Maco 375.

The Maco SV 378 was built by Ernst Maring in 1978. Two-time Indy 500 winner Arie Luyendyk started from 10th on the grid in this car in the Super Vau Support Race as part of the Grand Prix at Hockenheim on July 30, 1978 and finished fourth. The lettering on the car still commemorates Arie Luyendyk today.

The car was then sold to Holland and returned to Germany in 2002 - to Michael Schumacher's former vocational school teacher, from whom the current owner eventually acquired the Maco and entered it in the Historic Formula Vau Europe.
