As practice begins for the 2017 Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal, LookSmart has announced a 1/18 scale resin replica of the #12 Ferrari 312 T3 driven to victory by the late, great Gilles Villeneuve in the inaugural GP on the circuit that now bears his name. It was the first of 6 Grand Prix victories for the brave Canadian in a career cut short by tragedy.
I may be mistaken, but it seems to me that the 312 T3 is one of the few Ferrari Grand Prix cars never to be modeled correctly. As a spectator at the 1978 Canadian Grand Prix on the '
Ile Notre Dame' and a big fan of Gilles Villeneuve and that era, I look forward to adding this model to my collection.
Our advance order price is $199.00. A fall 2017 delivery is expected.
More than 25 years ago, we commissioned Nicholas Watts to capture Villeneuve's historic victory in the 1978 Canadian Grand Prix. The result was 'Ragged Edge', still one of the most exciting motor racing prints ever produced.
You can reserve one of the few remaining copies
