Classic Formula 1® fans will adore this exceptional 1:8 scale model of the Lotus 97T as driven during the 1985 FIA Formula One World Championship™ by Ayrton Senna and Elio de Angelis.
The 97T was an extremely competitive car during the 1985 season; it took eight pole positions and three wins, as well as three fastest laps and several second and thirds podiums too. The most notable win was Senna's at the Portuguese Grand Prix in which he tackled monsoon weather to win by more than a minute. It was Senna’s second race with Lotus and only his seventeenth F1 career race.
The Amalgam model has been crafted by hand with assistance of the Lotus team in order to replicate the car’s original finish and the materials used, recreating every detail with precision. Using digital scanning of the original car, the model features every detail at scale. The model comes complete with a certificate of authenticity.
