20065-Cars-1/20 Team Lotus Type 78 Year 1977 (with etched parts)
[Exploring the origin of the ground effect] The prestigious F1 machine that was active in 1977, Team Lotus, is the type 78. The style of the F1 machine up to that point is a thing of the past, and the body is wide with a slender monocock. A major feature is that it is composed of elongated side pontoons, and the idea of finishing the inside of the pontoons with a reverse wing cross section to generate a strong downforce is adopted. This year, Mario Andretti was in West America, Spain, France, Winner of the Italian GP and Gunner Nilson also won the Belgian GP. It made its name in history as a pioneer of the wing car, and the improved type 79 of the following year brilliantly won the champion machine.
