The Tyrrell 006 was a formula one car designed and built by the Tyrrell racing organization. It was introduced towards the end of 1972. In the hands of Jackie Stewart it won the drivers' championship for the 1973 formula one season, Stewart's third and final title. The car was first raced at the 1972 canadian grand prix with Stewart's team-mate and protégé François Cevert at the wheel. The 006 was a very slightly reworked version of the preceding Tyrrell 005 car, but in contrast it was the first Tyrrell-Built chassis to be replicated, the number 006 becoming a model- rather than chassis-number; previous Tyrrells were one-off constructions. In total there were three Tyrrell 006 models built: 006; 006/2; and 006/3. The 006 model was gradually phased out in the early part of the 1974 formula one season as Tyrrell constructed the succeeding Tyrrell 007.
