Footnotes

  • This amazing miniature masterpiece was built as an accurate commemoration of Niki Lauda's 1975 World Drivers' Championship-winning Ferrari 312T Formula 1 Grand Prix car. The 312T's most significant new feature was its transverse gearbox positioned ahead of the rear axle (hence the 'T' designation), which had been adopted by Ferrari's Chief Engineer Mauro Forghieri in order to achieve greater mass centralisation. The 3.0-litre horizontally opposed 12-cylinder engine was carried over from the preceding 312 B3 and now produced a maximum of 495bhp. After a delayed - and troubled - start to the 1975 season, the combination of Lauda and the 312T won four Grands Prix to bring the Italian manufacturer its first World Championship for 11 years.

    Offered here in the year Niki Lauda sadly passed away at the age of 70, this Ferrari 312T child's car is a rare and collectible clin d'oeil to one of the greatest Formula 1 drivers in history. Boasting correct original markings, this beautiful handmade Ferrari 'Niki Lauda' child's car was professionally built in 2001 by I.C.G. Carson. The electric-start engine produces around 5bhp and drives via an automatic transmission, while the car measures 1.8 metres in length and 1.2 metres in width. A wonderful gift for the young aspiring racing driver, this unique and collectible artefact would also be the perfect exhibition piece for company offices, reception areas, hotel lobbies, private collections, or even living rooms.
