Lotus 79 - Martini – Reutemann Scale - 1:43

Designed by legendary Colin Chapman and his fellow designers - Geoff Aldridge, Martin Ogilvie, Tony Rudd and Peter Wright, the Lotus 79 had a Ford Cosworth DFV (Double 4-valve) engine and a body that was constructed out of an aluminium sheet in honeycomb structure to combat the pressure of ground forces when the car ran at full speed.

Argentinian Carlos Alberto Reutemann drove this car in the 1979 Argentine Grand Prix, that was sponsored by Martini and Argentinian bank – Banco International had an interesting twist. This car first appeared with the bank name, but the bank during this time got involved in a large financial scandal. As soon as Chapman discovered this, he deleted the name after few days.
