Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Ferrari 275 GTB Le Mans 1966 #29 1:18 All of Ferrari’s prototypes failed at Le Mans but some honour was retained by the Maranello Concessionaires team and their 275GTB which took GT class honours in the hands of two young F3 drivers, Roy Pike and Piers Courage. The shape of the car is very well captured by BBR’s model and the paint finish is, as usual, excellent. The blue stripe decal down the centre of the car doesn’t quite line up with the recessed front indicators, although this mismatch is largely obscured by the bumper over-riders and spot lamps. The other smaller details are all neatly fitted and the fine wire wheels have a realistic satin finish. One major query is that the shade of blue is much richer than the usual Maranello Concessionaires ‘Cambridge Blue’ and most photos from the race are inconclusive. However, a poster for the 1967 race shows the rear of this car and the team’s 206 Dino on the grid in 1966 and there is a definite contrast between the two, so it’s pretty close.
