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!
Though Porsche’s original 908/02 Spyder was a success on the track, the famous carmaker from Zuffenhausen wasn’t finished refining it. When head Porsche designer Tony Lapine flattened the car’s top panels, drag was reduced and a new variant, the 908/02 “Flunder” (or “Flounder”), was born. Helping Porsche win the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile’s (FIA’s) 1969 International Championship for Makes, the 908/02 Flounder went on to achieve success for years, including a class win at Sebring in 1970 with famous actor/driver Steve McQueen behind the wheel.
