Lotus 79 MKIV

The Lotus 79 was first produced by Exin Scalextric in 1981 in various liveries. This was the period when Hornby Hobbies and Exin parted company but continued to share some of their product lines between them. The Lotus 79 was not one of those cars not selected for the UK (Hornby Hobbies) Scalextric product offerings.


In 2023, Hornby Hobbies Scalextric released the Lotus 79.
