Brumm no. R189 is Fangio's car, number 112, from the 1955 Targa Florio, while R190 is the 300SLR which with Stirling Moss, with navigator Dennis Jenkinson, scored his famous victory in the Mille Miglia, one of only two occassions that a non-Italian car won the 1,000 mile road race. This model has a double fairing for driver and navigator. Brumm later introduced a limited edition model of the 1955 Targa Florio-winning machine of Collins and Moss (no.S034). All the Mercedes Benz models are silver in colour. Incidentally, Brumm has also produced the coupe version of the Mercedes 300SLR (no. R187) which was prepared for the 1955 Carrera Panamerican, but the race was cancelled and the car never raced. Shop here

This is the Ferrari 330 P2 V12 from the 1965 Le Mans 24 Hours race, driven by Mike Parkes and Jean Guichet with race number 20. This combination had the sad misfortune to become the final retirement in the 1965 race when they dropped out only 45 minutes from the end, their gearbox expiring from overuse after compensating due to lack of breaks earlier. The model is an accurate portrayal, right down to the alloy wheels with 'knock-off' spinners. The only inaccurate detail noted is the lack of black 'rubber' trim surrounding the headlights. Shop here

After WW II there was a limited but steady demand for the soft-top VWs produced by coachbuilder Josef Hebmüller, but in 1949 a disastrous fire at the works brought production to an end with just 695 cabriolets having been built. Work was then placed with Osnabrück coachbuilders Wilhelm Karmann, who were the only office.al builders of the VW Cabriolet turning out some 330,000 units before production ceased in 1979.
