CMC 1/12 scale Ferrari 'Sharknose', signed Phil Hill
Rare opportunity to acquire one of only 500 made in 1/12 scale, this mint replica of the Ferrari 156 F1, commonly referred to as the 'Sharknose' is presented cased with a signed plaque ready to display.
Rarely has a race car left such an enduring memory as did the Ferrari 156 F1. It is a pity that not a single original exists in the world today.
The nickname “Sharknose” is indicative of its prominent oval radiator inlets in the front. Famous drivers clinched sensational victories with the “Sharknose,” the first Ferrari race car powered by a mid-mounted engine. Among these pilots was Wolfgang Graf Berghe von Trips, the first German to join the Scuderia Ferrari and win a Grand Prix after World War II. There was also Phil Hill, the first American to win the Formula 1 World Championship in 1961.
This recreated and detail-exact model is hand-assembled and composed of 1,945 single parts. It uses only the finest materials like copper, aluminium, stainless steel, cloth fabric and leather. This replica is enhanced by countless fine mesh embellishments and a highly polished finish.
