Despite being the single-seater in which Giles Villeneuve unfortunately lost his life, it is also considered one of the most beautiful in F1, as well as successful, since with this car Ferrari was proclaimed World Champion of Brands in the 1982 season. The kit has no less than 149 pieces with which to detail the model to the maximum, thanks to the fact that both the chassis, engine and suspensions are visible by removing the upper part of the body.

Additional details for the Ferrari 126C2 car scale model kit:

During the season of 1981 of Formula 1, Ferrari had used its first V6 Turbo engine (Type 021), so powerful that it put the 126CK chassis in serious difficulties, but everything changed with the appearance in 1982 of the 126C2, which in addition to reinforcing the chassis, had improved aerodynamics including the necessary ground effect. Despite its competitiveness, the Ferrari 126C2 will still be remembered for the accidents its drivers were involved in, including the fatal accident at Zolder that cost Giles Villeneuve his life. At Hockenheim, a new drama befell the Scuderia, as Didier Pironi crashed during practice in the rain against Alain Prost's Renault, flying through the air and landing with devastating consequences for the driver's legs, being forced to retire from the Formula 1.

Despite all these misfortunes, which caused Ferrari to lose a drivers' title that went to Keke Rosberg with a Williams, Ferrari took the victory in the final constructors' classification in 1982.

The engineer in charge of the 126 C2 was the English technician Harvey Postlethwaite, who introduced a new chassis construction system that he had previously experimented with at the Wolf team, and which used composite materials. The self-supporting chassis of the 126 C2 was built using aluminum panels reinforced with carbon fibres and Kevlar, thus obtaining a "sandwich" type structure. The increase obtained in the level of rigidity in the chassis was the key so that all the available power of the V6 turbo engine could be used.
