A unique and exclusive #26 Ferrari 250LM of the 1965 24 hours of Le Mans at 1:8 scale.
Jaques Swaters’ Ecurie Francorchamps entered two 250 LMs in the 1965 24 Hours of Le Mans. One of the two cars bearing race number 26 was entered on behalf of Georges Marquet. This is Ferrari’s chassis #6313 driven by the Franco-Algerian Pierre Dumay and Belgian Gustave ‘Taf’ Gosselin, shown exactly as it appeared after its rear right tyre exploded at speed on Sunday morning ripping open the light aluminium bodywork. Had it not suffered this burst tyre the car would undoubtedly have won the race but in any case managed to take a well-deserved second place in spite of significant delay. We have artfully recreated the damage to the bodywork and hand painted every detail of the dirt, oil and splattered flies that the car accumulated during 24 gruelling hours of racing. This unique model is specially priced reflecting the time and artistry lavished on its creation.
