DESCRIPTION
The Lotus 99T is a Formula One racing car designed by Gérard Ducarouge to compete in the 1987 World Championships.
 
Lotus signed a deal with Honda for use of their turbocharged 1.5-litre engine. Due to Honda's existing deal with Williams which allowed that team exclusive use of the 1987-spec RA167E unit, Lotus instead used the previous season's RA166E. As part of the deal, Lotus agreed to sign Honda's test driver Satoru Nakajima as teammate to Ayrton Senna.
Lotus also had a new title sponsor and livery, with the black and gold of John Player Special being replaced by the bright yellow and blue of Camel.
The 99T proved to be competitive in Senna's hands; the Brazilian won twice and scored six other podium finishes during the season, helping him and the team to third in the drivers' and constructors' championships. Senna's win at the Detroit Grand Prix was the final ever Grand Prix win for the team.
 
This 1:8 model is 529 mm long, 257 mm wide, 124 mm high, and features working suspensions, steering wheels, fake V6 engine, turbo compressor with intercooling radiators, snorkels, exhaust blowing under the rear diffuser.
