BBR 1:18 1957 Le Mans Ferrari 315 S diecast model car review
Published on: 09/01/2021 13:57
BBR has just released its 1:18 replicas of the three works Ferrari 315 S entries from the 1957 Le Mans 24 Hours.
Ferrari only campaigned the 315 S for one year. Originally intended to succeed the 290 MM, a change in regulations for the World Sportscar Championship for 1958 meant that it was itself quickly replaced by the 250 Testa Rossa.
A whole host of famous Ferrari drivers lined up for the Scuderia at Le Mans in 1957. Phil Hill and Peter Collins drove the #6 entry, while Mike Hawthorn and Luigi Musso steered the #7 machine. The #8 315 S would be piloted by Stuart Lewis-Evans and Martino Severi. Engine problems would account for the #6 and #7 cars, both having had stints in the lead, while the #8 came home in fifth place, as Jaguar swept the board with its D-Type.
Given that these Le Mans Ferraris have never been modelled in 1:18 scale before, and the calibre of the drivers involved, demand for these BBR replicas has unsurprisingly been high. So high, in fact, that they are all already sold out with BBR, while we only have a couple left on the shelf of each example.
