Faenza 43 - Maserati 250F 1:43 model

Maserati 250F model by Faenza 43

Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine
The odd one out among these releases is this rare single seater from Faenza. Maserati originally started their 12 cylinder project as the basis for an all new car but budgetary constraints meant that they ended up using an older 250F as the first test mule for their 2.5 litre V12 engine. Fangio was entrusted with much of the testing and the engine was found to be severely lacking in driveability with a very narrow powerband high in the rev range and very little torque. This model is in metal, rather than having a resin body which is normal for Faenza, but it is again well finished. We’ve not found a photo from the test listed on the box, but the written description of the car in our books matches the long exhaust set up depicted, the car having used stub exhausts early on.

About Faenza 43

Charming hand-built resin models of interesting and often obscure subjects. Paint finishes sometimes a little flat but otherwise very good. Made in Italy.
