Can anyone identify this resin  model of what appears to be a 1990's F1 car for a fellow collector who acquired it from a recent toy fair .

The second set of front wings behind where the front tyres are distinctive, but have so far drawn a blank. Perhaps is a pre-season test car ?

It has an "Indycar" sort of feel about it to me.

 

But I have no idea what it is though.

For me too. But, the rear wing with its lower winglets has a familur look.

Doesn't look like anything I've ever seen. I vote that it's fantasy.

I think this type of depiction is quite common across some model types.It enables the manufacturer to produce a "likeness" without the additional cost of paying

any fees or royalty to the original designer..

 

A bit like those "Embassy" 45rpm records that Woolworths used to do back in the 1960's.....They sounded close enough to give you the gist of the song..but always had a word or a sentence changed just to keep the price down......
