Description

Info original car: The GTO (Gran Turismo Omologato) is thanks to his racing success in the early '60s, the most well-known Ferrari (next to the F40). On this car, there are many books, and the prices for the 39 copies produced have already reached astronomical spheres at the end of the 70's, well before the Ferrari boom triggered by the death of Enzo.

Info model: The first GTO model from Revell came on the market in 1993, initially in red. The GTO of Nick Mason (# 3757 GT) had been taken for the construction of the car, and therefore some the following GTO series also had an appropriate note stamped on the underside. Further color variants were besides red also green and yellow, and finally blue. According to informations from Revell Germany (many thanks) the following amounts of the various colour-schemes have been produced:

250 GTO - red variant - 23800 examples

250 GTO - green/yellow variant (David Piper) - 2400 examples

250 GTO - yellow variant - 2000 examples

250 GTO - blue variant - 2500 examples

Sales of these models occured world-wide, but 70 - 80 % of the production stayed in Europe. So in total there have been more than 30000 GTOs produced by Revell. If you plan to complete one model with our transkit, and you do not want to buy the blue variant that we have to sell, it is likely that you find a different coloured model second hand.

Variant: The special blue variant is the chassis number 3987 GT, the car that you see here on this page. It participated in the 12-hour race of Sebring in 1963 with starting number 24 and won under Penske/Pabst in its class. Lacquer finish, printing and stickers are correct and perfectly implemented with this model variant - even one did not forget the auxiliary headlight on the nose or the position lamps on the roof. Nevertheless the blue color will probably not meet everyones taste.


Attention: This item is no toy and not suitable for children under 14 years.
