This is a scale model kit to be assembled by an adult; it includes all the parts as indicated, but it does not include glue or paints.
A true myth, which not only won on the circuits, but at the time meant Ferrari's return to the world of Sport Prototypes. Nothing more and nothing less than the winning car of the 1998 Daytona 24 Hours
, the beautiful Ferrari 333 SP sponsored by Momo, now available in great detail at 1/12 scale, with an assembly sequence similar to that used in the real world, based on the carbon fiber monocoque
, which in this reference has templates to "paint" the fiber. Only the V12 engine
, made in great detail in white metal, is quite a beauty. We love!

The F333SP, presented in January 1994, was destined for the WSC (World Sports Car) category races organized under the auspices of the International Motor Sport Association (IMSA) of the United States. With the F333SP Ferrari returned to the endurance racing scene after decades of absence, although its participation was carried out through private teams.
The promoter of the project was Ferrari North America, chaired by Gian Luigi Buitoni and Giampiero Moretti. The latter had already proven himself to the Prancing Horse at the wheel of a 512S, and since the F333SP's debut at Road Atlanta in April 1994, he was seen as essential to that endeavor. The carbon fiber, combined with aluminum to form the monocoque, contributed to the rigidity of this two-seater, while in the different parts of the body the carbon fiber was combined with Nomex. The gearbox was mounted in the narrow area between the two axles, and the five gears were engaged by a sequential mechanism. The engine was a 3,997 cc 65-degree V12, with five valves (made of titanium) per cylinder, which delivered more than 650 horsepower.
Gian Luigi Buitoni “dropped” at one point that the engine of the future F130, which was the internal name used in the factory for the F50, would be quite similar to that of the F333SP…
40 units of the Ferrari 333SP were built, the last one in 2002.
