The Lotus 56 could be considered one of the most innovative or extravagant single-seaters of all time, depending on how you look at it, since it not only had four-wheel drive, but also used a gas turbine manufactured by Pratt & Whitney. And the fact is that this invention worked very well, since it achieved pole position in the Indianapolis 500 and remained in front of the race for many laps. Thanks to MFH, who after a long time has decided to reissue this reference, we will be able to choose between any of the 4 units of this car that were presented to the starting grid, with the number #60 of Joe Leonard with his characteristic yellow nose and author of the pole between them. The kit mainly includes pieces of white metal, resin, turned metal, several photo-etched plates and decals, and as a detail, it even has a fifth tire with its tread painted in yellow to be used in the number #60 version. Marvelous!
