GALLERY: Lotus Type 49

Scalextric Lotus Type 49
Graham Hill

The ManicSlot Mini Review


  • The Scalextric Lotus Type 49 is an incredibly popular slot and has excellent potential to become highly collectible
  • Very impressive 'from the box' performance, (sub 6 seconds on my track!)
  • beautifully detailed slot car
  • Forced centering guide
  • Fantastic paint finish


  • Perhaps a little fragile, (especially rear exhausts)
  • Average non magnetic performance


The Lotus Type 49 is an excellent release from Scalextric. A slot that looks as good as it performs on the track. Amazingly this little slot car almost attained 'cult' collection status over night!

Even if you not a classic F1 fan you owe it to yourself to have at least one of these gems in your collection.
