This is a pair with No.159 the warmed-over Cooper Maserati and suffers from the same faults, poor colours, poor build quality and the horrible blue driver. I suppose they reflected reality in that little spoilers had been added front and back - just like was happening out on the track. Overall not a great success.

It is a re-issue of the 1964 release No.155 which was a model of the 1963 season Lotus, here it is in 1969 getting spoilers and steering and being sent out again. By the time it was deleted in 1973 it was a ten year old racing car. It was always orange and white with a black racing stripe, blue driver and racing number 8.
