Famous actor & racer Paul Newman co-drove this gorgeous
Ferrari in the 1977 Rolex 24-hour race at Daytona. This
equally beautiful 1/18 replica is now faithfully reproduced by
The details of this diecast replica are incredible!!
Features include detailed interior with turning steering wheel, working
suspension, realistic dashboard, highly detailed engine compartment,
opening doors, hood and trunk. The body of this replica is fully Tampo
The level of detail in this car is outstanding! Look at
the stitching in the center consul, clear, precise and very evenly spaced.
The level of the seat detail is also very detailed, down to the wrinkles
in the leather seats.
The driver cockpit detailing is mind boggling! The gauges
are clear and readable. All safety warning lights are labeled. I rarely
see detail of this level. This is beyond all expectations I could of ever
had. The prancing horse on the steering wheel would even make Enzo
Even details that are hidden, are done to a high
standard. The finning on the radiator feel and looks real.
This is probably the most detailed motor I have ever
seen. The effort KYOSHO put into this shows, great show KYOSHO!
Every strap, buckle and tie down
through out this car are highly detailed. Cars of this level are few
and far between.
KYOSHO made a car that is a wonder and
a joy to explore.
Look at the cable ties in the plug wires, evenly spaced
and they have a realistic feel to them.
The window slides with ease.
Engine-wise, the Series I Competizione's
used a fundamentally unaltered 4.4-litre Tipo 251 60° V12 to Ferrari's
stock Daytona, the most important upgrades having been an increase in
compression (from 8.8:1 to 9.3:1), hotter Weber 40 DCN 21 carburetors
with velocity stacks and an aluminium cold air box. Consequently, output
officially rose by just 10bhp (to 362bhp at 7700rpm) although
considering their especially careful preparation, we think somewhere in
the region of 380bhp would probably have been a more realistic rating.
This combined with the removal of an amazing 400kg meant these
factory-built hot rods were blisteringly fast despite their prodigious
Just a great
looking car from any angle. You could not ask for a better looking, more
highly detailed or of better quality then you would find in this car. I
would say for any race fan this is a must have.
With Kind Regards,
The plumbing of the fuel cell and fuel pumps are almost
perfect. The coloring of the fittings and the foe steel webbed fuel
lines are phenomenonal. KYOSHO even replicated the welds to an outstanding degree.

The underside is not as detailed,
it lacks depth and the realist feel of the rest of the car. I would and
