The Tyrrell P34, also known as the "Six-Wheeler", was a Formula 1 racing car designed by Tyrrell racing engineer Derek Gardner. The car used four custom-made 10-inch front tires and two standard rear tires. The smaller front tires should reduce the drag of the car. However, since smaller tires meant less traction, four tires were used to compensate for this. A complex wheel suspension made it possible to steer all four front tires.
The car made its first appearance at the 1976 Spanish Grand Prix and was very competitive. The drivers Jody Scheckter and Patrick Depailler achieved good results with the car. While Depailler consistently praised the car, Scheckter realized that the slow development of the special Goodyear tires meant that success would only be short-term.
The car had its greatest success in the same year at the GP in Sweden, with Scheckter and Depailler taking first and second place. To date, Scheckter is the only driver who has won a race in a six-wheeled car.
