O Jordan 191 é um dos carros mais belos da história da Fórmula 1, projetado por Gary Anderson tinha linhas harmônicas e tons de verde bem interessantes que faziam alusão à origem irlandesa do time. Kit Tamiya na escala 1/20. One of the many Formula One Racing teams, Jordan Grand Prix, grew out of the Eddie Jordan Racing, one of the most successful international motorsport racing teams of the 1980’s. Founded by Eddie Jordan in 1980, the team quickly established itself as a major force in Formula 3 and Formula 3000 Championship. At the beginning of the 1990 racing season, Eddie announced that he planned to enter Formula One Racing starting in 1991. His entry resulted in one of the most esthetic and potent racing machines seen during the 1991 Formula One Grand Prix season. The car was designed by the very talented Gary Anderson, and designated the “Jordan 191”. The racer incorporated an anhedral type of front wing for optimum aerodynamic performance at the track. The monocoque chassis is full of carbon fiber composite construction, designed in-house using the latest Computer Assisted Design (CAD) facilities. The rear under cowling uses a very distinctive twin-tunnel shaped defuser, effective for additional downforce. A new and highly realiable Ford V-8 HB powerplant is matched to Jordan’s originally designed in-house gear box. The stopping power for this awesome racing machine utilizes the AP racing brake system with 6-piston calipers on the front and 4-piston calipers at the rear, matched to HITCO made carbon fiber discs and pads. With the driving skills of Andrea de Cesaris and Bertrand Gachot, the Jordan 191 racing machine had the right ingredients for a great firts year, and displayed brilliant performance throughout the 1991 Grand Prix season.
