Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Lotus 16 UK 1958 Hill Alternative version SPK5341 Halford With Colin Chapmanís obsession with light weight and Frank Costinís aerodynamic abilities, the Lotus 16 was a quick car, but was also fragile. On original form Costin designed it with the exhaust almost completely exposed and at Silverstone the exhaust routing appears to have been the cause of Graham Hillís retirement, the official records showing the engine as overheating but the unofficial records saying it was the driverís backside which became too hot! The very clean lines of Costinís original design are well modelled and with just a few suspension parts visible, it is a relatively simple miniature.
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
