"That's easy: I accelerate more and brake less"
Such as Juan Manuel Fangio explained it, there couldn't be anything easier than driving a race car to victory ;D This was one of the "trade secrets" (no mysterious at all!) that made of "el Chueco" one of the greatest racing pilots worldwide ever.

This week at SpotModel, we bring you his Maserati 250F scale model kit by the hands of Renaissance. The rocket that let him grab an epic victory, among many others, in the 1957 German Grand Prix at Nürburgring, the last of the 24 victories achieved in 51 grand prix and the one which made him World Champion for the fifth time. A frenetic race after which he confessed that he had never ever driven that fast and risky... :-O

Here at SpotModel we want to share with you our passion for scale models, for race machines, for heroes... and for racing ;)

The Studio27 decals allow us to decorate our Hasegawa kit with this version of the Monte Carlo Rally.
