1/20 Scale Grand Prix Collection No.58

The Only 6-Wheeled F1 Machine
The Tyrrell P34 is the only 6-wheeled machine in F1 history. It took part in actual races in 1976, and drivers J. Scheckter and P. Depailler went on to drive their cars to a 1-2 finish at the Swedish GP to prove the incredible potential of the P34.

At the final race of the season, the P34 appeared before Japanese fans at the inaugural Japanese GP held at Fuji Speedway. From his 13th place qualifying position, Depailler overtook the field to briefly lead before a tire puncture dropped him back to finish the race in second place behind M. Andretti's Lotus.
