The 1973 running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans was a thriller, fittingly for the 50th edition of the legendary French endurance classic. Strong efforts by the factory Ferrari and Matra teams saw the lead change multiple times throughout the event, with the race being decided with 90 minutes to go with the retirement of the leading Ferrari. The gracefully aerodynamic Matra-Simca MS670B of Henri Pescarolo and Gerard Larrousse would cruise to victory by a six-lap margin, delighting the crowd with a win by French drivers in a French car.
Spark's tradition of creating the finest 1:43-scale Le Mans-winning racers continues with their 1973-winning Matra-Simca MS670B. It features exquisitely rendered sponsorship livery, as well as delicately hewn cockpit and exterior component details. Spark's 1973 Matra is a welcome and necessary addition to any serious collection of scale-model Le Mans winners.
