Ferrari Sigma GP

This Ferrari Sigma GP model made by Mercury with Ref.:301 was bought in a poor condition but complete. The color did not represent the real car and because of the age the not painted areas had plenty of oxidation.
All paint was stripped then the metal was debured and polished to remove all oxids.
The final result was a model of the Ferrari Sigma GP as presented at 1969 F1 premiere presentation. Built on a chassis of a 1966 single-seater F1 Ferrari 312F1 s/n: 011 with a Ferrari engine - V12cyl DOHC 2989cc 400hp at 10500rpm Lucas Fuel Injection CR=11.8:1 5 speed gearbox.
In 1969 Pininfarina, in collaboration with the Revue Automobile, produced this Grand Prix prototype which included various new safety features. This represented an attempt to generate recommendations to reduce the number of fatalities in F1.
