*Built to commemorate Niki Lauda's 1976 Ferrari Formula 1 car
*1:2 scale replica
*Built in Italy
*One of only approximately seven produced


Built to commemorate Niki Lauda's 1976 Ferrari 312T2 Formula 1 Grand Prix car, this 1:2 scale replica is one of a tiny handful of these children's cars produced. The first was built by Italy Car of Bologna for the proprietor's daughter. It is reported that he got Ferrari's main suppliers to supply 1:2 scale versions of the items supplied to the Formula 1 team: from Momo for the steering wheel to Goodyear for the tyres. The first example finished was shown at the Bologna Motor Show, and it is believed that Niki Lauda ordered one for his son. It is believed that no more than five of the first batch had been completed before the parent company filed for bankruptcy. Pony Car, again from Bologna, acquired the remaining parts and chassis, but they finished only two more examples, as production was too costly.

The car offered here is from the original batch of five. The engine is a BCC two-stroke unit, which was serviced last year, while the electrical system is all working, with a rear light as per the original Ferrari 312T2. Other noteworthy features include a two-speeds-plus-reverse gearbox, independent suspension all round, hydraulic disc brakes, alloy wheels, slick tyres, seat belts, and an engine start button on the Momo steering wheel. The attention to detail is simply astonishing.

A super rare find and perfect for the young aspiring racing driver, this miniature Ferrari would equally be suitable as a collector's item to adorn the garage or office.
