The Exoto Type 2 racers are among the most innovative cars in the history of motorsport. The Type 2 was the culmination of extensive research and experimentation. It is impossible to summarize the technical achievements that the team carried out. The results of their efforts with the Type 2 speak for themselves: 23 victories, 16 pole positions and 25 fastest laps in only 69 races.
Exoto is proud to bring you a Type 2 that dwarfs the competition in detail and finish. Words alone cannot describe the detail and attention that we put into our grand 1:18 scale replica which features no fewer than six opening parts!
The removable body panels set a new industry standard for fit and finish: beautiful, crisp vents in the shark fin fenders, separate metal rear spoiler, hinges that are flush with the bodywork, genuine wire mesh, countless photo-etch parts and a glorious paint finish.
Beneath the skin is miles of real metal wire, machined aluminum, fabric seat belts with photo-etch hardware, functioning steering and suspension, flexible brake cooling ducts, brake discs that turn within the calipers, opening fuel filler caps, and more...
