BEST MODELS 1/43 FERRARI 330 P2


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.
