With the next F1 race only 10 days away. And a race scheduled at one of the most epic temporary circuits of all time, the Grand Prix De Monaco, it was only fitting we take a look at a recent BBR modern F1 release. By BBR’s definition, this is the 1:18, diecast Ferrari SF1000 G.P. Tuscany Mugello, driver Charles Leclerc. What’s the significance? Well, it marks the thousandth race of Scuderia Ferrari in Formula One. Unique characteristics for the single race car include a rich Burgundy colour inspired by their classic ’50s race cars along with distinct livery for the driver number.
As for the model, this particular package was limited to 500 pieces and included is a leather base with Red stitching, plaque, certificate, and protective cover. The model itself is crafted in diecast metal but there are a number of plastic parts too. The paint and decal work is stellar, as it should be at this price point. The front nose is highly detailed as the photos will illustrate. Carbon fibre work is a mix of bag of matt finish, gloss and moulded product. The engine is entirely covered with a hint of the metalwork of the rear exhaust. And finally, Mr. Charles Leclerc is sitting ready to race with Ferrari gear in hand, this includes gloves, helmet and steering wheel, all meticulously detailed.
In short, the finished product is a feast for the senses and one that also seems delicate to the touch. This copy is long sold out but production for the same without the added bell and whistles is now available, also a limited production of 175. Enjoy the pics!
