Ferrari 250GTO - 1963 Nurburgring 1000km - 1:18-scale Diecast Model Car
Considered by many to be the most desirable automobile in the world, the Ferrari 250GTO has proven a tough subject for model car companies to capture accurately. The reason is clear: of the 36 examples built by Ferrari, each one is slightly different from the rest. Their aluminum bodies were hand-formed, leading to numerous variations between the chassis numbers. Kyosho have made the wise decision to focus on one specific GTO as the template for their 1:18-scale diecast model replica: S/N 3943GT, a car with an impressive racing history to back up its breathtaking good looks. This is the GTO that claimed first place in the 3-liter GT class and second overall in the 1963 Nurburgring 1000-kilometer endurance race, and it is in this trim that Kyosho presents the car. The level of detail poured into this model is almost overwhelming, from its gorgeous velocity stacks and intricate wire wheels to its tiny hood pins and bonnet straps. Certain to become the centerpiece of any collection of scale model Ferraris, the Kyosho 250GTO is not to be missed.
