1/12 Scale Big Scale Racing Car Series No.38

The 1976 Champion
From 1976, this worksman "Martini" Porsche 935 turbo racing model was based on the 930 turbo and was developed in accordance with the FIA Group 5 rules. One of the FIA Group 5 rules was that competing vehicles must be based on production vehicles therefore getting the name as a Silhouette formula. Mounted in the rear was a flat-6 air-cooled 2875cc turbo charged motor which thumped out a massive 590hp. Furthermore, the suspension underwent extensive remodeling. The "Martini" won on debut the season opening race in March 1976, as well as the second round race. But with BMW winning the 3A4A5 rounds and threatening to run away with the series, Porsche fought back winning the final two races at the same time snatching the championship.
