A limited edition of 99 hand-made models at 1:8th scale
This precise, lovingly hand-built and fantastically detailed large scale model of the Lotus Gold Leaf 49B Cosworth Monaco 1968 is offered in an edition of just 99 pieces. Each 60cm long model is mounted on a carbon fibre plinth with a museum quality dust cover.
This exceptional race car model has been developed by the dedicated model making team at Amalgam in conjunction with Clive Chapman of Classic Team Lotus. The Lotus 49 has found its way into the history books as one of the most influential F1 designs, having served to introduce the Cosworth engine, sponsorship liveries and wings to Formula One racing (in the 68 Tasman Championship).
The finished model of 49B/R5 is exactly as it was raced by Graham Hill at Monaco in 1968. It features incredible detailing, including the spectacular DFV Cosworth engine in all its glory beneath the removable rear bodywork.
