The C9 is a legend in its own right, partly thanks to its achievement in the 1989 season at the World Sportscar Championship. In 1989 the Sauber-Mercedes team won seven of eight races in the championship including a glorious triumph at the 24-hour of Le Mans race. This 1/24 scale model assembly kit recreates the 1989 Sauber-Mercedes C9 as it competed in the 1989 World Sportscar Championship season
The sleek, refined form of the car is recreated in detail, including a detailed rendering of the 5-liter V8 twin engine under the detachable rear cowl. Features realistic recreations of the suspension, cockpit, and even the under cowl. New additions to this kit are as follows: photo-etched parts for intercooler, oil cooler, engine bay heat shield, wingtips and belt buckles (originally used in Item 24310), and seatbelt stickers. Decals (made by Cartograf) and paint masking stickers have also been updated. • Comes with decals to depict any of he 61, 62 and 63 cars which competed in the 1989 race events.
