Porsche 908/2 Spyder (1970 Holtville - Steve McQueen) - 1:18 Scale Diecast Model Car
It's a commonly held belief in some quarters that had Steve McQueen not found fame and fortune as an actor, he could have had a successful career as a racing driver. One of the most compelling pieces of supporting evidence for this sentiment can be found in McQueen's dominant victory in the 1970 SCCA National at Holtville Raceway in southern California. Entering his newly acquired 908/2 Spyder with support from Johnny von Neumann's race team, McQueen blitzed the field, taking the A/Sports and overall victory and setting a new lap record in the process. This fascinating moment at the intersection of Hollywood and the motor racing world has been memorialized by AUTOart's brilliant 1:18-scale diecast model of Steve McQueen's Holtville-winning Porsche 908/2. The absence of sponsor livery allows both the beauty of the 908 and the exquisite detail of AUTOart's model shine through, with the car's delicate aerodynamic components set off nicely against its perfectly rendered racing wheels and fully realized engine compartment.
SPECIFICATIONS: 1:18 scale (approximately ten inches in length). Diecast metal body, features opening doors, hood, and front panel. Poseable steering.
PERFECT FOR: Steve McQueen fans. Porsche racing historians. Those who remember when race cars were as much works of art as they were technological advancements.
