Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Nissanís initial prototype for the 1968 season was a closed car, because that is how the sports car regulations had been in Japan to that point, but by the time the final race version was arrived at the Group 7 regulations had been adopted and the car appeared in open form. Here we see the original coupe which was powered by a Chevrolet V8 as Nissanís own V12 wasnít ready. A unique feature of the R381 in both coupe and spider form was the adjustable rear wing on which each side operated independently to increase grip in the corners. The model is generally well finished and looks good for shape, though the very thick windows belie the fact that it was originally released in 2003 as EBB43493. A little naughty of Ebbro that and not the only model theyíre sneakily re-issuing with a new catalogue number.
Well detailed and very well finished die-cast and resincast models of (mostly) spectacular subjects. Also 1:10 & 1:24 quality plastic kits. Made in Japan.
