Toyota GT-One TS020 LeMans Racecar

"The Longest Day in France", also known as the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race, takes place two hundred kilometers southwest of Paris, in the city of Le Mans. This high-speed circuit is made up of public roads closed off for the race, which stretch to 13.6 kilometers in length-the world's longest circuit track. Throughout the long history of the Le Mans, two or three major manufacturers have always fought for the top honors, but the 1999 race boasted six major contenders. The Toyota GT-One TS020 led the grueling 24 hour event right up until one hour before the finish, when it was struck with an untimely tire blowout, but still managed to finish second. Subtle refinements to the sleek carbon fiber composite body of the GT-One TS020 were conducted in the pursuit of optimal aerodynamics. The 3600cc V8 twin turbo R36V engine also underwent various modifications, improving power, torque, and fuel efficiency.

This was one of the best models I have put tougher. The instructions are clear and all the parts fit well. I highly recommend this kit! And it makes a great display!

Working on this model now. Love the engine detail on this car. No problems so far everything fits great. Can't beat a Tamiya model. Love the 1/72 scale of this model.

 
"Best Model I Ever Built"

This is the absolute best automobile model I have built in 47 years as a hobbyist. Engine, suspension, and air-ducting components are exquisitely detailed. I love these GT cars!

 
"Terrific Toyota"
richardeller112 (Hoschton Ga. USA)
Very nice kit from Tamiya. Everything went together pretty smoothly except for the brake ducts at the end of the build. The tolerances are very tight and if you are not careful, they can interfere with the rear cowl install. Be careful on placement of parts as the instructions flip parts right side up and upside down pretty often and if you are not paying attention it can trip you up. I know from experience now. Decals and tire stickers were top quality. Tough not to have fun building this legendary LeMans racer.

Comments

  • Keep small pieces and sharp edges away from children ages 3 and under.
  • Care should be taken when using tools and modeling knives.
