Winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans was more than a corporate directive for Renault in the late 1970s...it was a matter of national pride. After three years of development - and disappointment - Renault finally made good on the promise of their sports prototype program in 1978, when the bubble-roofed A442B of Didier Pironi and Jean-Pierre Jassaud outlasted the era's dominant Porsche 936s and 935/78s to take the overall Le Mans win, establishing the yellow-and-white Elf-liveried Renault as one of history's most iconic sports racers. Spark's 1:43-scale resin replica of the Le Mans-winning Renault Alpine A442B captures the visual excitement of this legendary Gallic racer in vivid detail. The famous Elf livery is among the finest seen recently on a 1:43-scale car, and as we've come to expect from Spark, aerodynamic components, race wheels and cockpit are all exceptional.
