Nigel Mansell signed Lotus 91, #12, British GP formula 1 1982, 1:18 Tecnomodel.
The Lotus 91 was a car used by Team Lotus in the 1982 Formula One season, designed by Colin Chapman, Martin Ogilvie and Tony Rudd. Colin Chapman went back to basics and designed the Lotus 91, powered by the Ford Cosworth DFV and using a standard Hewland gearbox, the 91 was uncomplicated and easy to maintain.
During the 1982 season, Chapman extended Mansell’s contract to the end of the 1984 season in a deal that made him a millionaire. The 1982 British Grand Prix was held at Brands Hatch on 18 July 1982. It was the tenth race of the 1982 Formula One World Championship. At their ‘home’ race Lotus chose to livery their race wins, rather than full tobacco sponsorship, as displayed on this model.
