[1976 Champion Machine that played a reversal play]
――Since 1976, the title of the world championship has been applied to Group 5 machines, and the racing car developed to correspond to this is the Porsche 935.
――Although major modifications are allowed for Group 5 machines, regulations stipulate that the silhouette (basic outer shape) of commercial cars should be retained, and it was also called the Silhouette Formula.
--The base is the Porsche 930 Turbo, a commercial vehicle released in 1974.
--The engine mounted on the rear end is an air-cooled horizontally opposed 6-cylinder engine that has been scaled down from a displacement of 2992cc on a commercial vehicle to 2857cc.
――By increasing the boost pressure of the turbocharger and highly tuning each part, it demonstrates high power of 590 horsepower.
――In addition, the suspension has also been modified, and the body has been significantly reduced in weight.
――Although he made his debut win in the opening round Mugello 6-hour race in March 1976 and won the following round 2 Barrelunga, the air-cooled intercooler was breached the rules and was forced to remodel to a water-cooled type.
――As a result, troubles occurred in succession in 3, 4, and 5 races, and BMW was kidnapped by the victory, but in the remaining 2 races, they won in a row. It brought Porsche the crown of a reversal champion.
--A plastic model assembly kit that reproduces the Porsche 935 Martini, the 1976 manufacturer's world championship champion machine, on a 1/12 scale.
--Overall length 395mm, overall width 173mm, overall height 56mm (including antenna).

--The front and rear suspensions operate smoothly using coil springs.
-The interior with the roll cage is also modeled faithfully to the actual vehicle.
--In addition to etched brake discs, bonnet catches, side radiators, etc., a metal antenna is also included.
