Product Description

This amazing Pocher kit features incredible detail in the monocoque chassis, the suspension and engine components, and even the elaborate cockpit – all of which include individual components for you to put together. The Lotus logo and Emerson Fittipaldi livery are faithfully replicated, printed on high-quality, die-cast pieces. With real rubber tyres and durable plastic details, all this Lotus 72D needs is someone to assemble the whole thing.

The finished model measures 523mm long and 235mm wide. This super-stylish 72D is recreated in 1:8 scale to make it the stand-out star of your Pocher collection.

The Lotus 72 is one of the most beautiful, innovative, and iconic Formula One racing cars of the 1970s. Colin Chapman’s revolutionary idea of moving the radiator from the front of the car to the sidepods allowed a sweeping change in the looks, handling and ability of Formula One cars. Firstly, in Gold Leaf colours and then in the stunning black and gold of JPS, the Lotus 72 swept all before it in the early 1970s, proving to be a classy contender.

Powered by a just as legendary engine - the Ford Cosworth DFV 3.0 V8 - the Lotus mated the power of this world-beating engine with handling that left the rest of the field behind. This chassis – identity number 7 (of 9) - was raced at the 1972 British Grand Prix by the soon-to-be World Champion Emerson Fittipaldi. Around the sweeping confines of the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit, Emerson emerged victorious over the Tyrrell of Jackie Stewart by just four seconds as he charged towards that year’s crown.

A car of this calibre deserves a lot of respect. Our Pocher model kit puts it back on a pedestal where it belongs.
