Tamiya 12037 Lotus Type 78 with Photo Etched Parts

Model: Renowned as one of the pioneers of the wing car era, the Lotus Type 78 debuted in the 1977 Argentine Grand Prix to much acclaim for its sleek, aerodynamic form. The inverted gull wing shaping on the underside of its side pontoons generated significant downforce via the "ground effect," without adding significant drag, giving the Type 78 exemplary cornering speed. In the highly capable hands of Mario Andretti and Gunnar Nilsson, it triumphed in the United States Grand Prix West, and the Spanish, French, Italian and Belgian Grand Prix. It raced into the first half of the 1978 season, and helped put the Lotus team firmly back on the map.
