FLM132025M Ettore Bugatti Figure

Cast-resin, hand-made in France.

Engineer and brilliant inventor in the fate full of pitfalls, Ettore Bugatti, born in the end of the XIXth century is a big name in the world of the Luxury cars, but he is also a competitor in the soul. The first victory at the 24 hours of Le Mans of Bugatti takes place in 1937 with Bugatti 57G then in 1939 with the car which will also kill his son, Jean. The war will be right of his beautiful company. Elegant man in any opportunity, he was reproduced wearing his hat, the left hand on the hip and with the dress handkerchief matched with his gloves which he holds in the right hand.



Le Mans Miniatures 132011EVO/1M Bugatti 57C Winner Le Mans 1939

Hand-made cast resin and etched metal bodies with plastic chassis, front-mounted FF motor, aluminum wheels and gears. Made in France.

This Bugatti 57C #1, entered by Bugatti in 1939 and that won LeMans 24 Hours in 1939, driven by Jean Pierre Wimille and Pierre Veyron, Etorre Bugatti.

It is an “evolution” version, fitted with an ABS injected chassis, especially created for this model. It is probably the longest car in LeMans’s story. The rear wheels are made of aluminum, the crown replaces the ABS one and a new bronze bearing replace the plastic one used previously to improve the mechanical transmission of the model. The in-line motor is positioned at the front as on the original car.



Le Mans Miniatures 132079M Matra-Simca MS650 No.33 Le Mans 1969 Fourth OA

Hand-made cast resin and etched metal bodies. Made in France.

After the destruction of the MS640 in April 1969, the new Matra MS650 was manufactured in record time to be entered in Le Mans. It is equipped with a long rear hood called a “pedalo” which improves the top speed. There are 4 small air intakes in the front and the air extraction from the radiator has been remodeled. The exhaust pipes are integrated into the rear diffuser to create a venturi effect. Many “Zus” fascners appear on the body shell and headlights. The wheels are 5-spoke wheels with a central nut and the arch conforms to the regulations in force in 1969.

Matra Sport defines its racing colors and the yellow is reserved for the MS650. Since 1968, it is the Blue Seita Orly 915 that covers all Matra. Elf is the main sponsor, the blue Caltex is separated from the logo by the color of the car. The tires are engraved and stamped with Dunlop colors. All these details can be found on the 1:32nd reproduction of this car, driven by Jean-Pierre Beltoise wearing an open helmet with an integral visor.



LeMans Miniatures 132003/12M Renault 5 Alpine Gr.2 No.12 Monte Carlo Rally 1978

Hand-made cast-resin body and chassis, with etched metal details. Made in France. Car number 12 was driven by Guy Fréquelin and Jacques Delaval and finished 3rd, only three minutes behind the winning Porsche. The Renault R5 Alpine Gr2 was introduced at the Paris Autoshow in 1976. It is the sports version of Renault 5, born in 1972. This racing version has a larger wing, the front bumper has been adjusted to fit additional headlights, the gas cap is also new, and there are additional safety locks on the rear hood and rain flaps. The interior has roll-cage bars, two spare wheels replace the rear seats and the usual dashboard is replaced by a sport dashboard including trip-master (to calculate intermediary times).
