I haven’t really been a big fan of Hot Wheels’ fantasy F1/IndyCar casts over the years. Even the Ferrari Grand Prix Racer I have has its faults (raised track-ready nose).

The card describes it as having an exposed engine, though “exposed” seems to mean just below the engine cover on the sides directly behind the driver.
