1/12 Lotus 49, Jim Clark
The Lotus 49 was a Formula One racing car designed by Colin Chapman and Maurice Philippe for the 1967 F1 season. It was designed around the Cosworth DFV engine that would power most of the Formula One grid through the 1970s. It was one of the first F1 cars to use a stressed-member drivetrain to reduce weight, and the first to be widely copied by other teams. Jim Clark won on the car's debut, in 1967, and it would also provide him with the last win of his career, in 1968.
Our scratch builders have busy creating exceptional quality, large scale iconic racing cars. This 1/12 scale (about 35cm long - the 1:43 models shows just how big these are) replica on a Tamiya chassis is of the Lotus 49 driven by Jim Clark to the World Championship in 1967.
This large scale 1/12 replica is presented cased.
These models are superbly built, but also fragile, so collection is preferred, hand delivery in the UK arranged on enquiry. Not suitable for overseas delivery.
