Footnotes

  • Offered here is a professionally built child's car modelled on one of the most iconic Formula 1 cars of all time: the Ferrari 156, commonly known as the 'Sharknose'. Built for the new 1½-Litre Formula, the V6-engined Tipo 156 is historically significant Ferrari's first successful mid-engined F1 car, and with Phil Hill driving proved good enough to secure the American ace his one-and-only World Championship in 1961.

    Hand built in the vendor's workshop in 2019, this miniature masterpiece is around 3m long, 1.10m wide, and 1m high. Weight is circa 120 kg. It is powered a 200cc single-cylinder four-stroke engine producing 6.5bhp, which is sufficient for a top speed of 45km/h. Mounted behind the driver's seat, the engine drives via automatic single-gear transmission and chain to the rear axle. It has an electric starter powered by a 12v motorcycle battery, and there are two mechanical disc brakes with two separate cables for security in the unlikely event of one breaking. A kart steering wheel and steering gear is used for easy and safe control. The chassis frame is constructed of steel/wood and the body is aluminium, while the cockpit has a (fake) rev counter, a (fake) ammeter, and a working temperature gauge. Wheels are 17" diameter all round, shod with motorcycle tyres.
