Lyncar was a Formula One constructor from the United Kingdom. They participated in only 2 grands prix, the 1974 and 1975 British Grand Prix, entering a total of 2 cars.

Lyncar's F1 participation was largely at the insistence of McLaren engine-builder and amateur racer John Nicholson, who had campaigned a Lyncar Formula Atlantic with great success. He commissioned Lyncar's Martin Slater to build a Formula One car for him, which entered the non-championship races and the British Grand Prix in 1974-5, qualifying for the latter.[1]

The car was later updated and entered for Emilio de Villota in the second-level Aurora F1 series.
