Penelope Pitlane Formula 1 Scarab. Although started in 1957 the Scarab wasn't completed until 1960. The engine was developed from the Offenhauser unit used at Indianapolis The engine was laid on its side to produce one of the lowest body lines of any front engined car. The drive shaft was along side the driver, the body was asymmetrical and the driver was seated very low in the car. With the cars first entry for the start of the 1960 season at Monaco, Moss was persuaded to try the car and managed a time seven seconds quicker than the works drivers of Daigh and Reventlow. This time was still nine seconds slower than Moss's pole position time set in his Lotus 18. The car was entered in five Grand Prix in the 1960 season.
The Formula 1 Scarab is available as a body only kit or a complete kit.
