released in 1979
rereleased in October 2005

box top (23.6kB) At 1/20 scale this is a rather large and well detailed kit. The kit is basically for a 'factory' race car, but comes with a separate set of parts for widened front fenders, widened and lenghtened rear fenders, new air dam, a large rear wing and even a driver figure. Apart from the nose the result looks a bit like a 252i LeMans racer.
A 'Custom' street version of this kit is also released.
The kit can be fitted with an electric motor and the pop-up headlights can be fitted with light bulbs, motor and bulbs are not included in the rerelease.
The model comes with a single piece insert for the engine bay details and a well detailed cockpit interior. A pedal cluster is provided, but not used. Doors, hood, head lights and rear hatch come with actual hinges. Chassis is simplified to allow for the electric motor and the lid of the battery compartiment.
A set of satin aluminum plated parts offer nice Speed Star Mk.III wheels, a set of brake discs and more.
A large set of decals is included for the white and red car depicted on the box top.
Body and aerokit parts are molded in white, chassis parts are molded in black.
