BBR Announces Ferrari 275 GTB In 1:18

posted in Diecast, Other Cars |

Today was an exciting day for Ferrari road car fans, as BBR announced a stone cold classic which, rather surprisingly, has never been replicated in 1:18 before. The car in question is the 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB in red (BBR1805).

The high-end Italian brand will also be producing the yellow Ferrari 275 GTB from the 1964 Paris Motor Show (BBR1805A), as well as a metallic blue 1965 Ferrari 275 GTB (BBR1805A).

The red version will be limited to just 250 pieces worldwide, and the blue and yellow to 100 pieces worldwide.

Minichamps also revealed its delivery schedule for July, which brings us up to the beginning of August. This one is slightly better than last month’s, but it doesn’t really set the world alight.

On the first week of the schedule, beginning 8th July, Minichamps will be sending us the 1:18 2010 Bugatti Veyron Super Sport in black with orange wheels (PG110842), and a 1:43 replica of the Audi Quattro that Hans-Joachim Stuck drove to victory in the Mid-Ohio 200km (P891604).

In the week beginning 15th July, Minichamps will deliver the 1:18 2010 Porsche 918 Spyder in matt black (PG060031), and the 1:43 Alfa Romeo T33/3 that Rolf Stommelen and Nanni Galli drove in the 1971 Nurburgring 1000km (P711210).

The 1:18 1939 Delahaye Type 165 cabriolet in red (PG116130) will come through in the week beginning 22nd July, as will the 1:43 1960 Bentley S2 in red (P139951).

The penultimate week of the schedule, beginning 29th of July, will see the release of the 1:43 BMW 1 Series M Coupe in metallic orange (P020020).

Finally, in the week beginning 5th August, Minichamps will release the 1:18 1934 Ford Edsel Roadster in dark grey (PG082080).
