John Watson's M28 now housed at the Donington Grand Prix Collection.

The McLaren M28 is a Formula One racing car built and run by McLaren in the 1979 Formula One World Championship. Powered by a conventional Ford Cosworth 3-litre engine, its ground effect design proved not particularly effective, and McLaren were never in the running for the championship with the car. Nevertheless, it earned points and came third in the Argentine Grand Prix, 6th in the Belgian GP and 4th at Monaco. Its drivers were Patrick Tambay and John Watson.

The M28 also raced in the colours of German beer company "Löwenbräu" at the 1979 US Grand Prix West.
