Tamiya Lotus 120B F1 F104W

It’s been a busy few weeks for Tamiya with yet another new model coming down the pipeline. The newest one being the Tamiya Team Lotus 102B Formula One car. Tamiya had actually released this body on the earlier F101 platform but the new model utilizes Tamiya’s proven F104W chassis for maximum performance.

Team Lotus entered the 1991 F1 season with the Type 102B, a modified version of the Type 102 used in the previous season. It was powered by a 3.5-liter V8 Judd engine mounted onto a carbon-composite monocoque chassis and its aerodynamic body was adorned with a green and white livery. Tamiya was one of the team’s sponsors during this season and the car featured Tamiya logos in prominent locations. Finnish driver Mika Hakkinen, who later became a world champion, famously drove this car as a rookie and an actual example is on display at Tamiya’s headquarters in Shizuoka. Now is your chance to own a 1/10 scale version of your very own!
