--A 1/24 kit that reproduces Volvo's S40, which participated in the British Touring Car Race, BTCC, with a completely new mold.
[About the actual vehicle]
――Volvo's new machine prepared in 1997 by Volvo, which continues to challenge touring car races with the Volvo 240 Turbo and 850 Estate, is a compact sedan, S40-based touring car.
--Developed to participate in the British Touring Car Championship, BTCC.
――We won the race at Brands Hatch on September 7th.
--The engine mounted on the front is an in-line 5-cylinder 1999cc engine.
-Generates maximum output of 300 horsepower.
――It was a feature that this engine was installed at the position just near the front bulkhead.
――As a result, the center of gravity is lowered and the mass is concentrated, resulting in quick handling characteristics.
--Drived by Swedish driver Rickard Rydell and British driver Kelvin Burt.
――In 1997, Rickard Rydell recorded only one win in his debut season, but in 1998, Rickard marked five wins.
――We won the driver's championship.
