That would be the 1966 #12 entry. Spark have also re-released Bizarre's 1966 #14 red car of Scuderia Filipinetti and the #15 white "Ford of France" entry.

We have seen Spark re-release some of their own models in the past, including some of the Le Mans winners.
I was thinking it may be related to the reemergence of Ford at Le Mans, but it could be just a coincidence.

Imagine if they had the foresight to release a three car set of the 1966 Gt40s that finished first, second and third ......... :(

Maybe they will tackle the 85 Sanremo winner. I just can't bring myself to pay the price being asked for the Minichamps DE with full HB livery. :twisted:

Love African rally winners. S1296 seem to be great investment in the future based on Safari winner version.

Good point. I don't know if this might affect value but the main difference I see is that 1976 Ivory Coast was not a WRC event while the Safari winner was a WRC event.

Thought I was safe until the next Alfa Romeo T33/2 popped up.

Id like to see spark doing a targa florio series - loads of nice winners - fortunately i have most of them from 1950 onwards or it would be very expensive for me!
