Tyrrell P34 - Swedish GP 1976 Twin Pack

New Tool

New

One of the most radical and recognizable concepts ever to see the Formula One track the six wheeled Tyrrell P34 is, at the time of writing, the only six wheeled Formula One car to ever see the track in a competitive Formula One environment. First shown at the end of the 1975 season and making its debut in 1976 the car proved unpopular with both drivers, Jody Scheckter being unimpressed with the cars handling. His team mate Patrick Depailler however was more complimentary on the cars performance.

The car proved to exceptionally good on circuits with long straights and flowing fast bends, but seemed to struggle more with tighter bumpier tracks. It scored its only victory at the 1976 Swedish Grand Prix at Anderstorp with Jody Scheckter coming in first followed by Patrick Depailler second. The early race leader Mario Andretti In the Lotus 77 was eliminated on the 46th lap, thus handing victory to Scheckter, who had also qualified on pole.

This proved to be the highwater mark for the P34, a number of podiums followed but by the following season the concept had reached the limit of its potential and the team reverted to a more standard design before the whole concept was outlawed later in the decade.

This Limited Edition Collector's Twin Pack is sure to be a popular addition to any slot car fan's collection and with only 3000 units available Worldwide, is likely to be as iconic as the six-wheeled Formula One car itself.

Great Model of a Great Car

I have to admit I am biased here, because I love the P34 - it is just such a mad car and it is my favourite F1 car of the "flat on the ground" era of bland boring clones which followed right up to the present day which are the worst ones ever. This model is superbly detailed and I would definitely recommend it. If you haven’t seen one, take a look at the original Scalextric Exin model of this car which was made in Spain in the late 70s in a range of bright colours – these still look really good and are wonderful models considering the manufacturing and decorating methods of their time. And also definitely buy this 2020 pair with its fantastic new tooling – they are great models of a truly original car.... Read more

Magnificent

Stunning level of detail, especially around the engine. Really lovely rendition of this quirky Classic F1 car, even the little cockpit side windows are included. Great runner, if a little too fast (I turn the voltage down slightly). When I first saw it in the box I did think the scale was a little smaller than 1:32 and compared to my original SCX version of the same car it looks tiny. But you get used to it, and they look superb going around the track.
