Brumm’s Brilliant Delivery

Today we received a new consignment from Italian company Brumm. We’ve been looking forward to receiving these subjects, and we’re very pleased that they are finally here.

Our favourite is the 1:43 Ferrari 312 T4 that Gilles Villeneuve drove in the 1979 Dutch Grand Prix at Zandvoort (BR059), which comes with the left rear wheel trailing behind the car. We’re impressed at how well Brumm has replicated the deformed tyre and suspension damage, and we also think it’s very nicely presented.

As is the 1:43 Gilles Villeneuve and Rene Arnoux two car set from the 1979 French Grand Prix at Dijon (BR058). It pays homage to the duo’s epic wheel-banging battle for second place at the French circuit, which is considered to be one of the most memorable pieces of racing in F1 history. It features a Spark 1:43 resin replica of Rene Arnoux’s Renault RS12 and a Brumm 1:43 diecast replica of Gilles Villeneuve’s Ferrari 312 T4, and is limited to 1,000 pieces worldwide.

Brumm also sent us the first four releases in its 1:43 racing Ferrari 250 GTO Collection, including the UDT Laystall car that Innes Ireland and Masten Gregory drove in the 1962 Le Mans 24 Hours (BR533), and the NART 250 GTO that the Rodriguez brothers took to victory in the 1962 Paris 1000km (BR530).

These were joined by all six of the brand’s 1:43 Ferrari 250 GTO road car collection.

Away from the Prancing Horse, we took delivery of a 1:43 replica of Roy Salvadori’s 1954 Goodwood International winning Ecurie Ecosse Jaguar C-Type (BR546). This first batch has already sold out completely to pre-orders, but we’re hoping to get another delivery of them soon.
