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!
In the mid-1970s, the venerable Porsche 908/03 – which won three of its first four races after debuting at the 1970 Targa Florio – got a new lease on life when its 3.0-liter V-8 engine was replaced with a turbocharged flat six (easily identifiable by the massive air intake behind the driver). Sometimes called the “908/04” (a name never sanctioned by Porsche), the tubo-powered 908/03 won races and championships into the early 1980s.
