Ferrari 250 GTO (1962 Le Mans Class Winner) - 1:18 Scale Model Car
The Ferrari 250 GTO has come to be regarded as the most coveted collector automobile in the world. Even when compared with other great V12 GTs from Ferrari, the GTO's blend of rarity, user-friendly performance, proven racetrack results and stunning good looks makes it a star among stars. Only 36 of these magnificent metal stallions were made, and with each body formed by hand by the coachbuilders at Scaglietti, no two are exactly alike. Consequently, truly capturing the GTO's essence in scale-model form is a tricky proposition. The master craftsmen at the Amalgam Collection have solved this problem by focusing their efforts on a single individual 250 GTO: chassis number 3705GT, perhaps the one GTO that most firmly cemented the model's legend with a GT-class win and 2nd-place overall finish in the 1962 24 Hours of Le Mans. Driven by Jean Guichet and Pierre Noblet, GTO #3705GT would finish a mere five laps behind the overall winner (a Ferrari prototype), before moving on to a successful career on the European hillclimb circuit.
Amalgam's exceptional 1:18-scale resin replica of 250 GTO s/n 3705GT was developed in cooperation with Ferrari SpA, who supplied original design materials and archival photographs to supplement Amalgam's digital scanning technology. The result is perhaps the most accurately rendered scale-model 250 GTO ever created. The level of detail poured into the GTO is unparalleled, from its gleaming headlamp bezels to its iconic gated shifter to its intricately threaded wire wheels. For enthusiasts who wish to furnish their personal shrines to Ferrari with only the finest scale models, the 1:18-scale 250 GTO from the Amalgam Collection is an essential piece.
