1:18 scale Lotus 18, Stirling Moss #20, Monaco Grand Prix winner 1961. Stirling took pole position and won the race, beating three Ferrari Sharknose, in 100 laps of racing. Stirling raced with the side panels on his Lotus removed to aid cooling, shown here in the delightful model, with a quite incredible view straight through the cockpit of the car. 1961 was the start of a brand new 1.5 Litre Formula. Great footage on Youtube here. Surely one of Stirling Moss’ best victories.

Brand new model with black outer box. The model was approved by Classic Team Lotus.
