Recreating the sport and rally cars that the young and young at heart will always dream about, Best Model brings back the days when men such as Mario Andretti and Steve McQueen raced at Le Mans, Sebring, Daytona, Watkins Glen, and other legendary tracks. Hand painted and assembled from dozens of parts by skilled Italian craftsmen, each 1:43 scale, die cast racer has a fully-equipped cockpit with a steering wheel and dashboard, four-point seat belt, fire extinguisher, roll bar, and other performance driving equipment; photo-etched metal wheels with the intricacy and finish of the originals; fully replicated paint and decals with the vivid colors you remember; and more. The only thing more amazing than the cars themselves is the racing history they represent!
Introduced at the 1970 Targa Florio, the Porsche 908/03 was squat and square (except for its rounded nose) but had a tremendous power-to-weight ratio. One of four 908/03s that Porsche fielded at its debut, this model even has the original’s red heart on the right front bumper. (Each of the four stablemates was assigned a different playing card symbol to help the drivers find their proper message when driving by the pits.)
