It was a development of the McLaren M16 Indianapolis 500 car. A Ford Cosworth DFV engine was used, which was prepared by specialist tuning company Nicholson Engines. This helped push the DFV's horsepower output to around 490 bhp. It was introduced for the 1973 season, and scored pole position with Denny Hulme on its very first outing. Hulme and Peter Revson took three wins between them that season, while rookie Jody Scheckter nearly added a fourth. Scheckter was responsible for one of the biggest accidents Formula One has ever seen, at the 1973 British Grand Prix, when he spun his M23 in front of the pack. Emerson Fittipaldi joined McLaren from Lotus in 1974. His knowledge of the Lotus 72 helped McLaren develop the M23 and that season Fittipaldi gave McLaren its first drivers' and constructors' world championships, beating Ferrari, Tyrrell and Lotus. - Wikipedia

Foi guiado por pilotos como Emerson Fittipaldi (na foto ao lado), Jody Scheckter, James Hunt, Gilles Villeneuve, Danny Hulme, Peter Revson, Jochen Mass e Nelson Piquet, entre outros. A equipe conquistou o Mundial de Pilotos de 1974 com Emerson Fittipaldi e de 1976 com James Hunt. Também venceu o mundial de Construtores em 1974 - primeiro e único antes da era Ron Dennis. Das 14 vitórias obtidas por Emerson Fittipaldi na Fórmula 1, cinco delas foram conquistadas com este modelo. O McLaren M23 não foi o carro mais tecnicamente avançado de sua época, mas uma boa preparação, atenção aos detalhes e alguns dos mais talentosos pilotos conquistaram em quatro anos 21 vitórias, porém o quinto ano viria a ser muito longo, e o modelo foi substituido. - Wikipedia
