HOT WHEELS - F1 2000 JAGUAR RI EDDIE IRVINE DIECAST MODEL


Following the release of Eddie Irvine's mount from the 2000 season, his team-mate's car is now available The motor is a year 2000 development of Cosworth V10 used by the Stewart team in 1999, on which the Jaguar is based. Johnny Herbert drove his last season in the Jaguar RI Cosworth V8 car announced in January. And whilst he scored no points during the year in the Anglo-French team car, the name of the 'leaping cat' was brought to prominence for the first time in Formula 1 as a works team.

This model in 1/43 scale is in the bright metallic 'British Racing Green' colour, reached after much pre-season testing of different paint finishes. As well as including the helmete Herbert driver figure, the car sports the leaping cat motif on the airbox and decals of HSBC (bankers) and Lear (the corporate biz-jet manufacturers). Mounted on a black base, the model carries racing number 8. --Model Collector Buy it now.
