Modelant Ferrari 125
#1

1:1 Ferrari 125


This was the very first car to wear the Ferrari badge. The V12 engine was designed by Gioacchino Colombo with contributions from Giuseppe Busso and Luigi Bazzi. Sport and competition versions of the 125 S were built with different bodywork although the chassis and running gear of the cars remained basically identical. The 125 S’s debut on the Piacenza circuit was, in the words of Enzo Ferrari himself, “a promising failure.” In fact, Franco Cortese had to pull out because of a problem with the fuel pump while leading the race. However, over the following four months, the 125 S was back on the track 13 times, winning six of its races.

         


           



Modelant  model of the FERRARI 125 S,

Handmade in 1/32 scale in high quality resin. Production is limited and numbered to 150 units.
Modelant have decided to reproduce, two great moments of the 125 - culminating in the first race of a Ferrari, and its first victory,

Thus, units 001 to 075 correspond to the first official race of a Ferrari, on the Piacenza circuit in 1947 with the number "128",

             


and the second version, units 076 to 150 represent 9 days later, with the number "56", when Franco Cortese signed the first victory in the history of Ferrari at the Circuito di Roma. The legend had begun.


Modelant are niche producer of Model Racing cars, and have tended to produce Ferrari's, starting with the car that led to the 125 - the Autoavia 815.
