1/20 Lotus 77 Ford

1976 Japanese Grand Prix #5 Mario Andretti

The Lotus 77 was the first ground effect car to compete in a F1 race.

During the late 1976 season, Team Lotus had the new "ground effect" Type  78 developed. Colin Chapman knew it's technologically advance and decided to not race the new car in 1976, because he wanted to use this advance for a full 1977 season.

For the last races in 1976 instead, a small ground effect was applied to the Lotus 77. And that helped Mario Andretti to win the Japanese GP!
