1/8 1965 Lotus 38 ex- Jim Clark.
This is a precise large scale replica of the 1965 Indy 500 winner. Clark used this car to set the second fastest time qualifying at the Indy 500, and subsequently dominated the race in chassis 38/1. This was a historic victory; the first for a mid-engined car, the first for a British car and the first for a Ford engine!
This 20″ / 51cm long model is made from over 1300 parts and has all opening panels and removable nosecone. Lift off the engine cover, then the carb covers, and remove the carb plugs! Even the steering works. It comes mounted to a leather base with plexi display cover and measures 27.5 x 14 x 8.5” / 70 x 35.5 x 21.5 cm.
This is part of an edition of 99 models built in the UK.
