CMC Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta SWB Competizione 1:18 Scale This race car miniature is comparable to its highly popular precursor in terms of quality and authenticity. The Ferrari 250 GT/SWB, itemized as M-046, is its standard street version. In 2008, a Ferrari 250 GT landed one of the highest bids that had every been made in an automobile auction. Including all charges and surcharges, the bidder was willing to pay 7.04 Million Euros (approx. 10 Million US Dollars) for the vehicle. Why? Just two words, which happened to be the title of the auction: Leggenda e passione or legend and passion. By the end of the 1950's, the 250 GT was already a much demanded car. Aristocrats or Hollywood stars -- the ones who could afford it -- tried to lay their hands on a street version. Famous race drivers, such as Stirling Moss, Wolfgang Graf Berghe von Trips, John Surtees and Maurice Trintignant, virtually felt obliged to drive a racing version of the 250 GT called Competizione. Perhaps no other car has had such an impact on the history of the Scuderia Ferrari. After having introduced the street version of the 250 GT SWB, we are now delighted to offer you a CMC high-end precision model of the racing version, which is composed of more than 1,100 single parts. The Competizione comes with many distinctive features in comparison to the street version produced by CMC years ago: The bumpers are removed, additional front air inlets for cooling the disk brakes, big 16 inch wheels 6.00 x 16 (front) and 6.50 x 16 (rear), different exhaust pipes with chromed extractors, undercarriage including cover plate, quick lifting jacking points in the front, movable racing tank quick opening / closing device (without fuel tank cap), rearranged trunk with a larger tank (130 liters) and removable spare wheel, door side trim panel is uncovered (without window crank mechanism), carburetor system with open induction intakes and air box.
