What\'s this unusual Lotus Elite kit? 10 years, 10 months ago #1

So I found this pic in a rather odd way. When Chris posted that pic of the Airfix Pontiac Kammwagen, I thought \"hmmm, I want one of those\" and went searching on eBay. I didn\'t find one, but I did find an Airfix 1967 Pontiac GTO box containing all sorts of kit bits, however. So I scroll thru the pictures, and see that among all the bits, it seems to contain a 1/24-ish plastic first-gen Lotus Elite.

I was expecting to win it for super cheap, so I just put in a 20 Euro top bid, only to find that it sold for 40 Euros! So someone else must\'ve seen it and wanted it. Anyways, I have no idea what it was, so here\'s the seller\'s pic:

Hong Kong, 1960s, electrically motorized 1/24 scale kit, originally by Lincoln but re-issued over the years under several other brands.
It is possible that the body pattern may have been copied from a Japanese slot car kit by Nichimo.
