1975 Shadow DN5 Pryce

Shadow DN5 was designed by Tony Southgate and built by Shadow Racing Cars for 1975 Formula One season. The DN5 was the further evolution of DN3 from 1974. The car was built around an aluminium monocoque, which used the Cosworth DFV V8 as a fully stressed member. DN5 inherited a  low and long nose with twin nostrils that fed the oil cooler. The water radiators were mounted on either side of the monocoque. UOP Shadow team drivers Jean-Pierre Jarier and Tom Pryce had a series of impressive races in DN5 started from Jarier’s pole position in the first Grand Prix of the season in Argentine. The qualities of the new car were confirmed when Tom Pryce won the non-championship Race of Champions at Brands Hatch in March. The best result for the car in 1975 WDC races was 3rd place by Pryce in the Austrian Grand Prix. The Welshman spent his entire short F1 career in Shadow, except his debut race for Token in 1974, until his fatal crash in South African Grand Prix in 1977.  This Spark scale model was issued as Raceland Gold Edition in a limited number of 300 pieces.
