F1's First Winged Competitor

The Lotus Type 78 F1 racing car has gone into the history books as the first competition winged racing F1 car. It first appeared at the first race of the 1977 F1 season in Argentina with its wedge-shaped body and inverted aircraft-like wings achieving a greater down force effect that considerably improved handling and performance. Not only did this new design reduced air drag, it adopted the idea that it would raise tire gripping power therefore allowing for harder and faster cornering. That year drivers Mario Andretti and Gunner Nilsson were at the helm of the new F1 Lotus racing car with Andretti winning the U.S. West, Spanish, French, and Italian GP's and Nilsson Gunner winning the Belgian GP. For the first half of the 1978 season, Lotus used their Type 78 which saw the revival of Team Lotus.

- This is a 1/12 scale plastic assembly model. Length: 381mm, Width: 171mm, Height: 76mm.
