The second of the Carrera series issues was this very nice Lotus 40 kit. The car was raced at the 1965 Los Angeles Times grand Prix at Riverside where Jimmy Clark was able to lock a second place in spite of the hazardous handling of the car. This kit shows the beautiful Ron Von Klein tooled body shape. The Carrera chassis was fitted at first with the Russkit “23” motor.
This is the deluxe kit with painted and decorated plastic body and black-anodized aluminum chassis. This kit is fitted with the Russkit “23” motor made by Mabuchi and standard Dunlop rubber tires.
