The Team Lotus Type 49 featured its Ford Cosworth DFV engine as a stressed member, a layout which revolutionized Formula 1. The 49B evolution debuted in the third race of the 1968 season, featuring downforce-improving revisions such as a front wing and wedge-shaped engine cowling. From the sixth race, a high rear wing was added in place of the engine cowling; its stay was affixed directly to the rear uprights with the intention of providing the downforce straight to the rear wheels. That year, famed driver G.Hill took 3 victories on his way to the Drivers' Championship, while Team Lotus also picked up the Constructors' crown. Perhaps equally as importantly, the car also ushered in the era of sponsor-colored cars, and the phasing out of the previous norm of national colors.

- This 1/12 scale model of the Team Lotus 49B 1968 offers excellent detail, plus photo-etched parts to further enhance your modeling experience.
- Length: 360mm, width: 165mm, height: 122mm.
- The model captures the car's slim, compact form.
- Movable suspension utilizes realistic mechanism.
- DFV engine is recreated in detail.
- Parts are included to recreate high rear wing, as well as high front wing seen in 1969 South African Grand Prix.
- Comes with semi-pneumatic rubber tires and driver figure.
