1:20 scale plastic model assembly kit of the Lotus 33 1965 Formula One Champion Conventry Climax FWMV.
In 1965, Team Lotus was the first team to introduce a monocoque chassis made of assembled aluminum sheets to the world of F-1. The team modified the suspension of their Lotus 25 to mount wider 13-inch tires, improved the engine exhaust pipe to be more efficient in exhausting air and placed it between the suspension arms on the underside of the car body.
In the middle of the season, they switched to the Coventry Climax FWMV V8 engine with a four-valve head and could increase speed. Combined with Jim Clark's natural driving technique, they won six out of the ten races in the season, winning his second world championship. He won this second victory despite the fact that he had to miss the Monaco Grand Prix, the second race of the F1 season, in order to participate in the Indianaoplis 500-mile race in the United States. Furthermore, he achieved the championship in the Indianapolis race as well.
