Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Lotus 80 F1 Test 1979 Andretti Alternative version SPK4240 3rd Spain The original design concept for the Lotus 80, unveiled and tested at Brands Hatch late in 1979 saw a very low drag set up with a long pointed nose and ground effect skirts which extended with minimal interruption the full length of the car. Unfortunately, it didnít work as the skirts tended to stick and downforce would be lost when most needed, so the car sprouted wings for race duty. Most photos of the car are in restored form but the decoration and details here look to be correct from the original press images. Itís an elegant design and the Martini livery helps accentuate the slim lines.
Very well finished mass produced resin built models. Ever improving detailing now incorporating more use of photoetched details for added finesse and with excellent paint finishes. Made in China
