About the 908/3:
The 908/3 was a lightweight model of the 908 line that was designed to race in the more technical Targa Florio races. Based off the 980/2, modifications were made to the car to suit the regulation changes to Group 6 in 1969. The 908/3 was evolved further in 1971 - with a newly added a rear fin and increased width to the rear body. Diameter and size of rear wheel was increased, and the shape of the roll cage was also changed. The 908/3 managed to take all first three positions at the Nurburgring 1000km race, with Martini Team taking first place. This full-detail kit is based off the 908/3 1971 version. 6 variations covering versions used by Martini team and Gulf team respectively at Nurburgring 1000km race and the Targa Florio.
