Kit to make the winning unit of the Fuji 500 Miles, third round of the Japanese Sport Prototype Championship (JSPC) in 1991. A completely new kit, with very interesting details, such as the rims with a separate core
to facilitate color painting in white. Although the rear hood cannot be opened, the mechanical parts
visible through any of the openings in the bodywork have been detailed, with a gearbox, a set of suspensions, radiators and turbos at the very rear well-defined, which complement its exquisite interior
and the front of the monocoque chassis. Quite a delight!
Additional details for the Toyota 91C-V
car scale model kit:
During the 1991 season Toyota, while focusing its efforts on developing the new prototype for the World Prototype Championship, also evolved its Group C turbo car to try to win the Japanese Home Championship (JSPC).
The number of modifications that led to the Toyota 91C-V was extensive and, in addition to improving aerodynamic performance by shortening the rear end of the hood, the radiator on the right side of the body was relocated to the front of the vehicle. It was also possible to increase the frontal downforce, one of the biggest shortcomings in previous prototypes, improving cornering performance. The Toyota 91C-V was specifically designed to adapt to the characteristics of Japanese circuits, and was equipped with a 3.6-liter twin-turbo V8 engine.
The Tom's team began the championship aboard the Toyota 90C-V, but from the second race, the 1000 km of Fuji, they could count on the new 91C-V. In that 1991 season, made up of seven races, Toyota won 3 races, three for Nissan and one for Jaguar, but that was not enough to win the championship, having to settle for second and third position in the championship.
