Ferrari 312T3 (1978 Canadian Grand Prix) - 1:18 Scale Model Car
On certain magical days, the planets just seem to align. Such a day was October 8, 1978, when Gilles Villeneuve, the most gifted driver of his generation, scored his maiden Formula 1 victory at the wheel of a Ferrari...and did so in his home race, the Canadian Grand Prix. Following a season that saw him struggle early, Villeneuve's promise finally came good at the first ever race at the Ile Notre Dame circuit, where a brilliant drive from third on the grid (coupled with attrition among his rivals) saw him take the checkered flag in frigid conditions to the rapturous adulation of the hometown Montreal crowd. Villeneuve's winning Ferrari 312T3 is now the subject of a premium-grade 1:18 scale resin replica by Looksmart. Featuring a highly detailed cockpit, a faithfully recreated gearbox, and crisp sponsorship livery, this car is a beautiful tribute to one of the most beloved Ferrari pilots of all time.
