This Fulldetail kit is based on the MS11 installed with the MATRA V12 engine of the first all-French team in 1968.

[ About the MS11 ]
The MATRA (Mécanique Aviation Traction) company, one of the French company focus on aeronautics and weaponry development in the 20th century, entered the motorsports racing society in mid-1960s, with the support of the Charles de Gaulle administration with a newly established automobile subsidiary.
They joined F1 starting from 1967, and the MS10 provided to the satellite team won 3 champions in the 1968 season with the Ford DFV engine. At the same year, other than the satellite team, they rolled out the MS11 for the all-French factory-backed team.
Many of the parts which constructing the MS11 are made in France, and the MATRA V12 engine with 12 60 degrees V-cylinder and DOHC4 valves , generating 420 horsepower that as powerful as the V8 engines at that time but lighter and more compact.
The driver of the MS11, Jean-Pierre Beltoise, the French who raced under MATRA team starting from F3 racing. He finished at 1st runner up in the Dutch GP, and standing at the victory stand for the first time.
The results of MS11 may be less shiny as the MS10 at the same season, however, with the unique engine sound of the MATRA V12 engine, and with their “made in France, win for France” spirit, the MS11 should be left in the Grand Prix history.
