Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Austin Healey Sprite Le Mans 1961 #46 This is a subject that Le Mans collectors have previously had to modify from a standard Sprite and will be a welcome addition to many collections. The special-bodied Sprite run by Ecurie Ecosse at Le Mans had originally been built by Healey for the Sebring 4-Hours in March 1961 and finished that race in third position. For Le Mans the car had a unique streamlined bonnet fitted and was repainted in Ecosse’s traditional metallic blue. The car was badly damaged in the race and the wreck then extensively modified by subsequent owners but a replica was built a few years ago. The model has the correct decoration for Le Mans but the body appears to be based on the replica, the tell-tale being the lack of a swage line on the roof sides. A subtle detail and a model that is still very important for any Le Mans collection.
Very well finished mass produced resin built models. Ever improving detailing now incorporating more use of photoetched details for added finesse and with excellent paint finishes. Made in China
