MASERATI MC GT3

2012 - #38 A. Pier Guidi, G, Gardel - 1st Villalunga

CA43b

The Maserati Granturismo is without doubts one of the most beautiful GT cars of the last 10 years. A timeless classic design by Pininfarina, it was turned in a GT3 racing car by Swiss Team, who was given permission by Maserati following previous successful collaborations. Swiss Team, lead by Guido Bonfiglio, started the development in late 2011.Despite a very promising start, which led to a maiden victory in Vallelunga, the Maserati Granturismo GT3 project did not enjoy a long career. This model reproduces the car that A. Pier Guidi and G. Gardel  drove to a historic victory on the Roman track of Vallelunga in 2012.

CA03m

Porsche 962 is a sport-prototype racing car created to replace the already succesfull Porsche 956, in order to allow its presence in the Americans IMSA and WSC Group C competitions. It was one of the most succesful racing cars ever and it won several competitions all over the world:

– 24h Le Mans in 1986, 1987 and 1994
– IMSA GTP Championship in 1985, 1986, 1987 and 1988

– 12h Sebring in 1985, 1986, 1987 and 1988
The ‘962C’ appeared for the first time at Le Mans in 1985. The engine was a boxer, 6 cylinders, with two turbos, liquid-cooled, 4 valves per cylinder, double overhead camshaft. On the 3 factory cars engaged in the ’24 Hours’ in 1988, displacement had been increased at 3 liters. Even the tail had been updated. In those years, cars used ‘long’ shaped tails to have the less possible drag on the ‘Les Hunaudières’ straight. During qualifying, the works 962C reached a maximum speed of 391 kph. This car raced at Le Mans in 1988 in the red, white and yellow livery of sponsor Shell. The car was driven by Bob Wollek, Vern Shuppan and Sarel van der Merwe.

ALFA ROMEO 33/3
2011

ALFA ROMEO 33/3

2011 - Pocono #5 - J. Nastasi, A. Merzario

CA11m

The Alfa Romeo Tipo 33 Sport Prototype was designed in the mid 1960s to race in the World Sports Car Championship. Eventually it succeeded and won the Manufacturers’ Championship in 1975, and again in 1977.
Designed by Carlo Chiti, a famous Italian engineer, the several variants of the car were raced by the Alfa factory and by many privateers as well.
After the initial victories in the 2-litres Prototype category, the ‘T33/3’ version made its debut in 1969 and gained its best results in the 1971 World Championship: the Autodelta ‘open’ Prototypes won the overall ranking at Brands Hatch, Watkins Glen and the Targa Florio, being even faster than the 5-litres ‘Sport’ cars. The ‘T33/3’ cars featured a monocoque chassis, paneled in aluminium and magnesium, a V8 2998 cc engine, and a 6 or 5 speed gearbox. Top speed reached 330 km/h, at Le Mans with long tail. This specific model of the Alfa 33/3 reproduces the car owned by Alfa Romeo collector Joe Nastasi, as it was tested on the Pocono circuit. The same car is often seen at various historic car shows and races, such as the Targa Florio of 2014.

Ferrari 512M
1971

512M

1971 - Le Mans #16 - C. Craft, D.Weir

CA51a

The Ferrari 512S had failed to beat the Porsche 917s in the 1970 World Sportscar Championship. Despite their higher weight and greater consumption, the car had shown winning potential, but the rushed-in construction had left reliability issues unresolved.
An unusual bad luck struck at Le Mans, where an accident eliminated four of the five 512S in one stroke. For the ending part of the season Ferrari decided to create a lighter and aerodynamically advanced version: thus the 512M (Modified). The new ‘M’ model proved immediately faster than the ‘S’ version, but took its first steps only three weeks before the last Championship race at Österreichring (now Red Bull Ring), where Jacky Ickx led the race until he had to retire due to an alternator failure.
The first victory of the new Ferrari took place in South Africa on 7 November 1970, in a race outside the World Championship, in the hands of Ickx / Giunti who reached the finish line three laps ahead in the Porsche 917K driven by Siffert / Ahrens.
In 1971, however, despite the excellent end of the 1970 season for the 512M, Ferrari decided to concentrate the company’s efforts on a car in line with the 1972 regulations, leaving the 512M to private teams: the 512M, therefore, despite its outstanding performance, could never prove its true value. It remains, however, one of the most beautiful and iconic Sports Prototypes in the history of motorsport.
The CA51a model represents the car of Team David Piper which, driven by Chris Craft and David Weir at the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1971. Starting 13th from the grid, the car dropped to 44th place in the 2nd hour of the race but climbed back to an excellent 4th place overall.

CA18f

The Ford GT40 is one of the most famous cars in Le Mans history, having won the 24-Hour race four times in a row. In 1966 it was with the Mk II version, in 1967 with the Mk IV, in 1968 and 1969 with the first one, Mk I. It was built to compete against Ferrari, who had won Le Mans six times in a row from 1960 to 1965. The development of ‘Mk I’ was carried mainly by Ford Advanced Vehicle in England, joined in 1965 by Carroll Shelby. It was a car built for racing, but also for road circulation; the name ‘GT40’ comes from the height from ground, which is 40 inches. The chassis was a steel semi – monocoque, the body was made of fiberglass. The engine came from the one used on the AC Cobra, with cast-iron block and head: naturally aspired V8, 4.7 litres displacement, 2 valves per cylinder operated by a central camshaft with push-rod; it was coupled with a ZF 5 speeds gearbox. Brakes were provided with vented discs on all the four wheels. This GT40, raced the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1967, driven by N. Vaccarella and U.Maglioli.
