De Tomaso Mangusta (1967) - 1:43 Scale Model Car
The De Tomaso Mangusta is one of history's most beautiful exotic cars. The brainchild of wealthy Argentine landowner Alejandro De Tomaso, the Mangusta blended sensuous Giugiaro styling with the brute force of a small-block Ford V8 to create a uniquely memorable automobile with attention-grabbing features such as a gullwing-style engine cover. Though tricky to handle, the Mangusta was undeniably fast, and with a total production run of only 401 units, it was destined to become a coveted classic.
The De Tomaso Mangusta is now available as a highly detailed 1:43-scale diecast model car by Maxichamps (the "budget" line from Minichamps). Though positioned as a wallet-friendly model, the Maxichamps Mangusta is still packed with detail, and uncommonly for the 1:43 scale, features an opening gullwing hood for maximum visual impact.
SPECIFICATIONS: 1:43 scale (approximately four inches in length). Diecast metal body, features opening hood. Fixed-position steering. Comes with acrylic dust cover and display base.
PERFECT FOR: Exotic car model collectors. Ford fans. Those who believe that high detail and high value are not mutually exclusive.
