    Product Description
    Ver.C : 1973 Rd.8 LM 24hours #15 J.Ickx / B.Redman #16 A.Merzario / C.Pace #17 T.Schenken / C.Reutemann

    - based on the version that raced at Le Mans in 1973 where A.Merzario/C.Pace won pole position, but only finished in 2nd, unable to catch up to the Matra who was only ahead by a short distance.
    - features different interior/exterior specific to the 1973 model that was absent from the previous year (Ver. A/B). Driving lamps added to the nose section, semi-separate cockpit cowl etc. have been faithfully reproduced.

    [About the Ferrari 312PB]
    The Ferrari 312PB first debuted in 1971, featuring an aluminium monocoque bolted onto a steel frame, and equipped with a detuned version of the 180 degree V12 engine originally used on their 312B F1 machine.
    Suffering from endurance issues in the 1971 season, the 312PB was upgraded on various fronts for the following year: increased engine output, separation of the gear box, strengthened chassis, separation of fuel tanks, and altered cowl shape to match low-profilization of the tyres. All these changes gave Ferrari a perfect winning record in 1972, except for Le Mans which the team did not enter that year.
    In the following year of 1973 other upgrades were made to the car to make it competitive enough for Le Mans. However with the Ferrari racing team facing budget cuts from company owner Fiat, the team decided to focus solely on F1 from 1974 and on, making the 312PB the last endurance race car built by the Ferrari team.

    [Kit Details]
    - variations include 2 versions used in 1972, and the version used in 1973 Le Mans which featured various changes to the outward appearance/inner construction compared to the previous year.
    - a full detailed, multi-material kit featuring white metal, resin, etching, metal turned parts, rubber tires, decals and various cords allowing for maximum representation of the original vehicle.
    - aluminium turned parts used for wheel rim, muffler ends, damper, wheel shaft and lock nut.
    - certain metal parts such as headlights have been further plated.
    - front/rear cowl and bonnet can be removed, allowing full view of the detailed interior after completion.

    - fabric pattern decal included to replicate fabric seal commonly found in the racing machines in that era
