CMC 1:18 scale diecast model of the Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa Le Mans

Click on the picture for details.

M-80  White  #22 Restored Le Mans
The Testa Rossa, literally "red head" in English, owes its name to the valve covers of its 12-cylinder engine being painted red. As one of the most hot-blooded and successful race cars of all time, it led Ferrari to win several Sports Car World Championships and three Le Mans victories (1958 / 60 / 61), among others. There is good reason that this car is one of the best remembered classics in automotive history. Special

With its prowess, its unique beauty and elegance, the Testa Rossa touched off a fascination that has stayed with racing enthusiasts around the world to this day. Sergio Scaglietti, an exceptionally gifted automobile designer, had Formula 1 in the back of his mind when he started his work on the body design. The distinctive front styling proved to be a trademark of his design, causing instant excitement. No less breath-taking were its extremely drawn-in front fenders. They were designed to give the Testa Rossa’s front drum brakes better cooling. Soon everybody in the international racing circles started talking about the Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa "Pontoon Fender".

The Alfa Romeo 8C name was used on road, race and sports cars of the 1930s. The 8C for 8 cylinders. The Vittorio Jano designed 8C was Alfa Romeo's primary racing engine from its introduction in 1931 to its retirement in 1939. In addition to the two-seater sports cars it was used in the world's first genuine single-seat Grand Prix racing car, the Monoposto 'Tipo B' - P3 from 1932 onwards. In its later development it powered such vehicles as the twin-engined 1935 6.3-litre Bimotore, the 1935 3.8-litre Monoposto 8C 35 Type C, and the Alfa Romeo 8C 2900B Mille Miglia Roadster and Le Mans coupe.

Having watched teammates Pescarolo and Jean Ragnotti retire with engine problems during the night, Rondeau and Jaussaud fought the elements, Ickx's abilities, and the backmarkers to take overall victory by two laps. Rondeau's factory, similarly to those of Courage and Henri Pescarolo, was based near Le Mans. The Rondeau M379B that won the 1980 Le Mans race was powered by a Ford-Cosworth V8 engine, as were all cars constructed by the team. In 1981 he entered five cars, finishing 2nd and 3rd. However, this was overshadowed by the death of Jean-Louis Lafosse in the early hours of the race after crashing out on the Hunaudieres straight. Rondeau would never again approach those heights with his own cars; 1982 saw all three works M382's outed before half distance, while his three all-new M482 cars retired early as well. Rondeau's team was wound up at the end of 1983.

In 1975, the Gulf team contested Le Mans only, since that year it was a race in which organizers set their own rules concerning fuel consumption. As a result, the race was excluded from the World Championship of Makes. For LeMans, Gulf prepared two GR8 cars powered by Cosworth-Ford V8 DFV engines prepared by and detuned specifically by the team itself. The detuning was done to conserve fuel, and meant that the drivers only had 8,400 rpm to work with instead of the 10,400 rpm they had used the previous year. This car was the overall winner of the 1975 LeMans 24-hour race, with Derek Bell and Jacky Ickx sharing the driving.

In late 1995, Tom Walkinshaw Racing were commissioned by Porsche to produce a WSC (World Sports car Championship) contender. The resulting Porsche WSC-95 was based on the TWR's 1991 Jaguar XJR-14 chassis, with the roof removed and a flat-six Porsche engine fitted. Joest ran the WSC-95s at Le Mans as backup for Porsche's own team of works 911 GT1s. Joest won the race in 1996 with Davy Jones, Manuel Reuter, and Alexander Wurz. Then returned to win again in 1997, with the same car but without Porsche works support and driven by Michele Alboreto, Stefan Johansson and Tom Kristensen, the latter scoring the first of his eight wins. As with the #7 956 of the 1980s, Joest tried for a third straight win, although without success, as neither car finished, while Porsche itself prevailed in the 1998 race.

During the 1998 FIA International GT season the 911 GT1-98 struggled to match the pace of their rival Mercedes, BMW and Toyota but at Le Mans however, it was a different story. The BMW V12 LM retired with wheel bearing trouble, and the Mercedes CLK-LM vehicles had oil pump troubles. The Toyota GT-One, which was considered to be the fastest car, also suffered gearbox problems. The 911 GT1-98, despite being slower than the Toyota or the Mercedes, fulfilled Porsche's slim hopes, taking both first and second place overall thanks to reliability, giving Porsche its record-breaking 16th overall win at Le Mans, more than any other manufacturer in history.

Even more impressive is the fact that the JMS Racing "X-Ray" Porsche 935 finished third overall, just 16 laps behind the second-place Renault and 27 laps behind the race winning Martini Porsche 936/77 prototype entries! In fact, the "X-Ray" 935 may well have secured outright victory had it not suffered a great deal of trouble: brake problems, fuel injector pump, and a turbocharger that needed to be replaced!

John Tojeiro had designed and produced a small sports-car which he sold under the name of AC Ace. The cars had a tubular chassis and powered by Bristol 2-liter six-cylinder engines. With its lightweight body and good handling characteristics it was an ideal vehicle for racing. When Bristol announced they would no longer offer the engine, Shelby convinced him to continue production by outfitting the cars with Ford Fairlane engines. The engine produced almost twice as much power as the engine it was replacing and yet it weighed less. The rear end was modified to handle this increase in power.

This 250 LM entered by the North American Racing Team won the 1965 24 Hours of Le Mans driven by Jochen Rindt and Masten Gregory, which remains as Ferrari's last overall victory in the endurance classic. About 32 models were built in 1964 and 1965, with all but the first few powered by 3.3 L 320 hp (238 kW) engines, though the name did not change with the increase in displacement. A fully independent double wishbone suspension was specified with rack and pinion steering and four wheel disc brakes. Ferrari had intended that the 250 LM be homologated for racing as a Group 3 Grand Touring Car, however in April 1964 the FIA refused to do so as Ferrari had built considerably fewer than the required 100 units. The 250 LM thus had to run as a Prototype until it was homologated as a Group 4 Sports Car for the 1966 season.

The resulting car is powered by a 2-litre V4 engine fitted with two hybrid systems. The first is a traditinal front axle arrangement similar to that of the Audi R18 and Toyota TS040. The second hybrid system, uses a innovative exhaust gas recovery method. Instead of a Formula 1 style layout with an electric motor linked to the turbo shaft acting as both an energy recovery system but also anti lag, Porsche’s layout has two turbines in the exhaust system, the first is part of a conventional turbo-charger layout but the second turbine, is only linked to an electric motor This layout allows the Porsche to recover energy at all times the engine is running, the only LMP1 design currently able to do this, all others are only able to recover energy under braking. The V4 engine powers the rear axle with over 500 bhp according to Porsche. When the driver recalls the stored energy from the battery, around 400 bhp drives the front axle. This way the Porsche 919 Hybrid temporarily turns into a four-wheel drive car with around 1,000 bhp system performance. The car features a unique and complex suspension system which is still not fully understood, but is thought to split out heave and roll by using a thrid spring/damper unit with advanced hydrilic interlinking with the spring/damper units for each wheel.

The 1958 Le Mans saw the introduction of a 3 litres limit which destroyed the Jaguar's legendary reliability, added to that Ferrari entered 10 Ferrari Testa Rossas, Their embarrassing defeat in 1957 was sure to be avenged.

By the 20th hour of the race, the 2900B was leading by 11 laps or 160 km ahead of the next best competitor and was seemingly safe from any challenge, when its right front tire burst. Raymond Sommer managed to bring the car under control and stay on the track before making a pit stop. It was found that the ruptured tire had caused damage to the engine mounting bracket, and there was an oil leakage. Refusing to give up, Clemente Biondetti drove the car for two more laps until a damaged valve compelled them to call it quits.

In 1982 when Jackie Ickx and Derek Bell entered Le Mans with the Porsche 956 they had a car that could outrun, out brake and out handle anything on the track. PMA/Minichamps has done a nice job capturing the essence of this truly iconic race car. The body is well formed, ride height and track, are spot on. The doors hinge open nicely to reveal a well appointed interior. Indeed Minichamps has added a wealth of nicely done small details throughout the car. This is highlighted when one takes off the rear cowl and gets a chance to inspect the detail of the engine compartment and rear suspension. The 1982 LM winner was sponsored by Rothmans and this model comes with the option of a fully authentic car with sponsers decals supplied or for $100 extra expertly applied.

For 1979  private teams would have to carry the flag for for Porsche by competing with the former factory 936s and customer 934s and 935s. And carry it they did!

Lubrifilm Racing hired Herbert Müller to share the driving duties with Lubrifilm regulars, Angelo Pallavicini and Marco Vanoli. The Swiss trio drove a fantastic race, keeping the pressure on without relent. They held the lead in Group 4 from flag to flag, finishing the gruelling event more than 30 laps ahead of their nearest Group 4 competitor, another Porsche 934. The #82 car finished in 4th place overall, having covered 2,468.58 miles at an average speed of 102.85mph.

The real story is that the Lubrifilm Racing entry finished a mere lap behind the third place Hawaiian Tropic Porsche 935/77, and just two laps behind the second place 935/77 of Porsche Kremer Racing, both cars that many would have considered to be much faster! The outright winner was a very advanced Porsche Kremer Racing prepared 935 K3. The privately entered 936s, incidently, failed to finish.

For 1955 the cars were modified with long-nose bodywork and engines uprated with larger valves. At Le Mans, they proved competitive with the Mercedes-Benz 300 SLRs, which had been expected to win. Mike Hawthorn's D-Type had a narrow lead over Juan Manuel Fangio's Mercedes when another Mercedes team car was involved in the most catastrophic accident in motorsport history. Driver Pierre Levegh and more than 80 spectators lost their lives, while many more were injured. Mercedes withdrew from the race but Jaguar opted to continue, and the D-Type driven by Hawthorn and Bueb went on to win. Mercedes withdrew from motorsport at the end of the 1955 season, and Jaguar again entered Le Mans in 1956. Although only one of the three factory-entered cars finished, in 6th place, the race was won by a D-Type entered by the small Edinburgh-based team Ecurie Ecosse and driven by Ron Flockhart and Ninian Sanderson, beating works teams from Aston Martin and Scuderia Ferrari.

The 2000 cc Tipo 33 mid-engined prototype debuted on 12 March 1967 at the Belgian hillclimbing event at Fléron, with Teodoro Zeccoli winning. In 1968 Autodelta created an evolution model called 33/2. At the 24 Hours of Daytona, the Porsche 907 with 2.2L engines were dominating the overall race, but Alfa took the 2-litre class win. The win was repeated at the Targa Florio and at the Nürburgring 1000 km. However, in most races, the Alfa drivers were outclassed by their Porsche rivals which used bigger engines. In 1968, the car was used mainly by privateers, winning its class in the 1000km Monza, Le Mans, Targa Florio and Nürburgring races. At the end of season 1968 Alfa Romeo finished third in the manufacturers championship.

Due to a change of rules, Ferrari found itself devoid of a car suitable for the 1968 season of international sports car racing. Much to the surprise of the international racing world, however, by the end of 1968, the Scuderia had come up with a prototype Ferrari 312P for the 1969 season.

The first sports car that they built for the forthcoming races had an open-top Spyder body and a twelve-cylinder, three-litre engine with a maximum output of 420 hp.  A showdown came on March 31, 1969, when the 312P was pitted against hotly-favored rivals, such as the Porsche 908, Ford GT 40 and the Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 at the world-famous 12 Hours of Sebring endurance race. Eventually the 312P team of Chris Amon and Mario Andretti clinched an impressive second place in the overall standings and one class victory. The Sebring runner-up car with starting number 25 is now replicated by CMC as a high-end model in scale 1:18. This extraordinary miniature may well deserve a place of honor in your private “pits.”

But, an exemption was made, sportscars with 5000cc engines were allowed, if at least 50 were made. This rule allowed the popular yet slightly outdated Ford GT40 and Lola T70s to continue racing. Yet, instead of being only cannon-fodder to a few factory-built prototypes, the Fords won again twice at Le Mans, while Lola took the 1969 24 Hours of Daytona. When the minimum number was lowered to 25 for 1969, the new Porsche 917 and Ferrari 512 were homologated (sanctioned) at five litres, and outclassed the older Lolas and Fords.
The T70 was also produced in open-top "spyder" configuration.

The Porsche 935 K3 was third in a line of 935 variants developed by Kremer Racing, and remains one of the most famous race cars designed to this day. Most identifiable by its unique body configuration, the Kremer 3 (K3) had a twin-turbocharged, 3.2 litre flat six-cylinder motor producing upwards of 740 to 800bhp.

But power alone would not be enough to battle the factory built 935’s so Kremer Racing focused on shedding weight. They replaced the factory fitted air-to-water intercooler with an air-to-air intercooler, replaced body panels with light weight composites, and implemented over 100 other upgrades. All these changes are thought to have only given the K3 935 a 1% performance increase over their factory built counterparts but that’s all that was needed. The 935 finally had its worthy adversary.

The Audi R10 was unveiled in December 2005 and went on to win both its maiden race at the 2006 12 Hours of Sebring and the 2006 24 Hours of Le Mans. It was the first diesel powered car to win either of those events. It supersedes the previous Audi R8, a proven model which won five times at Le Mans since 2000 while earning a reputation as one of the most successful racing cars of all time. 
Though it bears a strong resemblance to the previous model, it is nevertheless a new design. The aerodynamic package is in compliance with the new regulations. A second rollover hoop is added and the wheelbase is lengthened to accept the new, longer V12 TDI engine.
Sold Out  The  R10 engine:  TDI turbodiesel engine, running on Shell V-Power Diesel. It is a 5.5 L (335.6 ci) all-aluminium bi-turbo 90° V12, with common rail direct injection of more than 1600 bar (23,206 psi). Its output should be 485 kW (650 hp) (regulated) and 1100 N·m (811 ft·lbf) of torque, and its usable power band is between 3000 and 5000 rpm. Its benefits are a broad range of usable power, high torque and economy.

Two Garrett TR3076R turbochargers limited by the regulations to 2.94 bar (42.64 psi) absolute breathe through two 39.9 mm intake air restrictors. It uses the latest Bosch Motronic (MS14) management, provided by Bosch Motorsport, 1600 bar piezo injectors.

Sold Out  A test run in October of 1963 proved that the Daytona Coupe had a lower center of gravity, less drag, and a higher top speed by about 20 mph. Its racing debut was at Daytona and thus, the derivative of its name. For the first half of the race the Daytona dominated but fire in the pits forced the team to retire prematurely. A visit to the 12 Hours of Sebring gave the Cobra Daytona its first racing victory where it finished first in the GT class . By the Le Mans race, two examples had been created, Dan Gurney and Bob Bondurant drove the Daytona Coupe to a GT class win at LeMans and finished fourth overall.

The Porsche 962 was a sports-prototype racing car built by Porsche as a replacement for the 956 and designed to comply with the European Group C formula and IMSA's GTP regulations.  The 962 was introduced at the end of 1984, from which it quickly became successful through privateer owners while having a remarkably long-lived career, with some examples still proving competitive into the mid-1990s. Sold Out  

The Porsche 956 and 962 put drivers on the podium at Le Mans an incredible 9 times with a 123 win in 1982 and fulling positions 1 to 8 in 1983,1 to 7 in 1984 and 1 to 5 in 1985, now that is dominance! To make the 956 eligible under the new IMSA GT rules, Porsche extended the 956's wheelbase to make room for the pedal box. A steel roll cage was also integrated into the new aluminium chassis. For an engine, the Porsche 934-derived Type-935 2.8L Flat-6 was used with air cooling and a single Kühnle, Kopp und Kausch AG K36 turbocharger instead of the twin K27 turbochargers of the Group C 956, as twin-turbo systems were not allowed in IMSA's GTP class at the time. Thus the 962 was born!

When the Porsche 956 was developed in late 1981, the intention of Porsche was to run the car in both the World Sportscar Championship and the North American IMSA GT Championship. However rule changes in IMSA GT saw the water-cooled engine of the 956 forbidden, as well as the chassis itself due to new safety regulations which required the whole driver to sit behind the front axle. The 956's chassis had the driver's legs positioned on top of the chassis, thus making the car ineligible.

To make the 956 eligible under the new rules, Porsche extended the 956's wheelbase to make room for the pedal box. A steel roll cage was also integrated into the new aluminium chassis. For an engine, the Porsche 934-derived Type-935 2.8L Flat-6 was used with air cooling and a single Kühnle, Kopp und Kausch AG K36 turbocharger instead of the twin K27 turbochargers of the Group C 956, as twin-turbo systems were not allowed in IMSA's GTP class at the time.

The newer Andial built 3.2L fuel injected Flat-6 would be placed in the 962 by the middle of 1985 for IMSA GT, which made the car more competitive against Jaguar. However it would not be until 1986 that the 2.6L unit from the 956 was replaced in the World Sportscar Championship, using 2.8L, 3.0L, and 3.2L variants with dual turbochargers. The cars run under World Sportscar Championship regulations were designated as 962C to separate them from their IMSA GTP counterparts.. The 3.2L unit, which had been eligible under IMSA's Group 3 engine rules was banned in IMSA by 1987  In 1988, to counteract against the factory Nissans and the threat of withdrawal from Porsche teams, watercooled twin turbo Porsche engines would be allowed back but with 36mm restrictors.[1]

In total, Porsche would produce 91 962s between 1984 and 1991. 16 were officially used by the factory team, while 75 were sold to customers. Some 956s were rebuilt as 962s, with two being previously written off and four others simply rebuilt. Three 962s that were badly damaged were also rebuilt had been given a new chassis number due to the extensive reconstruction. Due to the high demand for 962 parts, some aluminium chassis were built by Fabcar in the United States before being shipped to Germany for completion.

During the early years of the career of the 962, the car was one of the most dominant cars in motorsport. The championships won by teams campaigning the 962 included the World Sportscar Championship title in 1985 and 1986, the IMSA GT Championship every year from 1985 to 1988, the Interserie championship from 1987 until 1992, all four years of the Supercup series (1986 to 1989), and the All Japan Sports Prototype Championship from 1985 until 1989. The 962 also won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1986 and 1987 as well as later winning under the Dauer 962 badge in 1994.

The presence of strong factory teams, such as Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, and Toyota, competing against privateer 926s eventually led to the car becoming less successful in the later 1980s. Even though they struggled, 962s would continue to win races into 1993, taking lone victories in the IMSA GT and Interserie seasons. Although Dauer's Le Mans victory in 1994 featured a highly modified car, Team Taisan would take the final victory ever in an original 962C, winning a All Japan Grand Touring Car Championship event at Fuji Speedway in August of that year, just over ten years after the car had first debuted.

Ferrari 375 story;

When Enzo Ferrari started his own company in 1947, he hired Gioacchino Colombo as chief engineer. Colombo's task was to design a new engine that would outperform the 8-cylinder Grand Prix engine he had designed for Alfa Romeo before the War. The rules allowed for a supercharged engine with a maximum displacement of 1.5 litres or a naturally aspirated unit displacing up to 4.5 litres. 

Colombo's 1.5 litre V12 engine powered the very first Ferrari and with various displacements, it powered every Ferrari up to 1950. This was the first year of Formula One and the championship winner featured a Colombo designed engine. Unfortunately it was the Alfa Romeo that won every single race of the championship; Colombo was quickly fired and replacemed by Aurelio Lampredi. He set out to design a completely new engine for 1951. 
He designed a naturally aspirated 4.5 litre V12 engine. To save weight, both the cylinder block and heads were cast from light alloy. Each bank of cylinders featured a single overhead camshaft and 2 valves per cylinder. The engine was ready to take on the Alfa Romeos in 1951. Fitted in the Ferrari 375 F1, the V12 produced around 350 bhp. Although this was no match for the Alfa Romeo's power, the 375's fuel efficiency still made it a serious contender, only losing the championship in the final race of the season.

Ferrari's performance and Alfa Romeo’s policy changes were the main reasons for Alfa's withdrawal from Grand Prix racing. With Ferrari being the only team with a competitive F1 racer, the sport's governing body decided to run the 1952 and 1953 championship under Formula Two regulations. This left the Lampredi engine obsolete for Grand Prix racing, but its career was far from over. The large V12 found its way into a limited series of Ferrari sports racers, the 375 MMs constructed in 1953 and 1954.

The finest hour of the Lampredi V12 was the 1954 24 Hours of Le Mans race, in which the 375 Plus with a 4.9 litre version of the engine took the overall victory. In the next years the Lampredi engine was used sparsely, usually powering the finest of Ferrari road cars. Ironically its career was overshadowed by the Colombo engine, which in 3-litre form powered Ferrari's most successful racers, like the 250 GT, 250 GTO and 250 TR.
