1:18 1991 Jordan 191
Minichamps has just released no less than four 1:43 Jordan 191 replicas from the team’s very first Formula One season, in 1991.
Chief of these, obviously, is the car with which a certain Mr. M. Schumacher made his Formula debut at that year’s Belgian Grand Prix. He was only with the outfit for that one race, before he was poached by Benetton.
Minichamps has also replicated the car of the driver that Schumacher replaced, Bertrand Gachot. Gachot had been jailed for using tear gas against a taxi driver. Full-season incumbent Andrea de Cesaris’s car has also been modelled, as has the black 1990 test car that was driven by John Watson.
