1/24 Toyota GT-One TS020 (Le Mans 1999)
PREORDER ENDS BY 15 DECEMBER 2012. STOCK ARRIVAL ESTIMATION IN FEBRUARY 2013
Tamiya's TS020 is a brilliantly engineered rendering of this machine. When you open the box, it almost seems as if a runner or two of parts is missing, as they've kept assembly as simple as possible. But they haven't compromised on detail -- it's all there, including full engine and cockpit replicas. The rear cowl is removable after assembly so you can show off that 3600cc V8 twin turbo R36V powerplant, too! Comes with masking seals for easy body painting and decals for marking the car as #3 (second-place finisher) or #1 (the colors and markings above the windshield differ slightly from car to car). Note that contract limitations prevented Tamiya from including markings for ALL sponsors in the decals.
About the Toyota GT-One TS020.
"The Longest Day in France", also known as the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race, takes place two hundred kilometers southwest of Paris, in the city of Le Mans. This high-speed circuit is made up of public roads closed off for the race, which stretch to 13.6 kilometers in length-the world's longest circuit track. Throughout the long history of the Le Mans, two or three major manufacturers have always fought for the top honors, but the 1999 race boasted six major contenders. The Toyota GT-One TS020 led the grueling 24 hour event right up until one hour before the finish, when it was struck with an untimely tire blowout, but still managed to finish second. Subtle refinements to the sleek carbon fiber composite body of the GT-One TS020 were conducted in the pursuit of optimal aerodynamics. The 3600cc V8 twin turbo R36V engine also underwent various modifications, improving power, torque, and fuel efficiency.
