Reiza Studios published a seemingly innocuous tweet ahead of the weekend showing their F1 car content... but the eagle-eyed might have noticed something rather interesting in the shot...

... the Niki Lauda driven and short-lived but still incredibly awesome Brabham BT46B 'fan car' from the 1978 season - well OK, the 1978 Swedish Grand Prix to be precise, before the FIA swifty deemed the controversial design illegal and outlawed further participation of the revolutionary machine.

Despite having a shelf life of just the single Grand Prix, Lauda used the car to devastating effect to produce a crushing domination of the Swedish Grand Prix at Anderstorp, taking the chequered flag over half a minute ahead of the Arrows-Ford of Italian Riccardo Patrese.

Apparently, if the tweet linked below is anything to go by, sim racing fans will soon have the opportunity to sample this iconic car in Automobilista 2... and the governing body of the sport can't do anything to ban it!
