1998 was the second season for Prost F1 team. In 1997 when Prost acquired the remnants of Ligier F1, the Ligier car for the 1997 was already designed and built. So, Prost used it through the 1997 season under Prost badge but retained model designation as JS45. Thus the car is the first Prost and last Ligier F1 car simultaneously. The Minichamps scale model represents Prost JS45 in 1998 livery with Jarno Trulli behind the wheel as the launch car for the 1998 season.
