Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Ferrari 860 M Nassau 1956 #13 Alternative version FAE282B Fangio Caracas FAE282C Castellotti Cuba FAE282D Kessler Lime Rock & FAE282E Grossman Bridgehampton Alfonso de Portago appears to have taken delivery of the ex-works Ferraro 860 Monza (Chassis 0602M) in Nassau as there is a photograph of him before the races outside his hotel with the car still painted red with a white nose. By race day it had been re-finished in pale blue with yellow stripes and in this livery he took second place in the Governorís Trophy and third overall with a class win in the Nassau Trophy. After de Portagoís tenure, the car passed to Chinetti and was raced by a variety of drivers with Bruce Kessler taking a class win at Lime Rock and Bob Grossman driving several times including a second placed finish at Bridgehampton. The Nassau car is the only version we have found images for and the model matches these very well. The finish on all of them is good and the small visual changes make for appealing and unusual additions to any Ferrari collection.
