The Premium Classixxs Martini truck and trailer set might not be 100% real, but gee it looks good loaded up with a set of 917's :

I like that a lot!

Maybe just the photo, but that looks toyish.
Probably in part because the 917's are from Brumm (I think). If you had a couple of Spark's instead it would probably look more realistic.

"If" Matini Racing actually had one of these I'm sure it would have been used for both sportscars and rally cars. Nevertheless, I agree it would look cool with a couple of Martini 911 RSR's on it.

This Fiat 238 made by Rio with a Ch. Pozzi theme caught my attention this week, but... is it real?

Bruno, my feeling is the Rio model is 'inspired' by the picture you've shown, but is not an exact replica.

Here's a rear view which highlights a few difference :

Image

1. Rear windows are missing
2. Ferrari logo and script above the windows is missing
3. Prancing Horse on the sides between the stripes is missing
4. Ch Pozzi logo on blue background rather than red
5. Michelin logo is on yellow background rather than red
6. Number plate (4950 ZZ75) does not match the original (3567 GK92)

In addition, I think the Rio model is based on an early series (1960's) 238 van, whereas the actual van was a later series (1970's) 238.

Perhaps Ch. Pozzi team had another Fiat 238 earlier back in the 60's, but I really don't know if Ch. Pozzi team was in fact active at that time. I know they were active later in the 80's, besides the 70's when they were racing in Le Mans with Ferrari 365's. Also don't have any pictures from the 60's (if Ch. Pozzi was actually racing at the time).

Bruno, from my records, Charles Pozzi's team made its debut at Le Mans in 1972 with a Ferrari 365 (ignoring the Delahaye he drove in 1949). Chassis #15667 did not appear before Le Mans.

The 238 van carries the sponsorship of"Thompson". This suggests its linked to their 1973 Le Mans entries (two Ferrari 365's), or their 1978 entries (two Ferrari 512 BB LM).

I think you have now killed it. Just found out on the specs that it's the reproduction of the 1978 version.

Available locally, the guy is asking only US$ 328,00 on it.
Martin? It has "Alfa Romeo" written on the door.

Grab it quick Luc. These Carlo Brianza transporters are rare and very costly. Here's the same transporter that sold on eBay in January for almost US$ 900 !

Here it is in 1929 when Scuderia Ferrari was running the Alfa Romeo works team :

It never sold .

Infact it has been relisted 11 times since that auction , first at almost $1400 , then again at $1200 and is currently for sale at an increased price of $1995 :o
The seller is obviously a chancer .

Cool (really cool, if I'm honest), but not for me.
Oh, and that's with shipping.

Thanks Gary. When I look at 'Completed listings', the $897 sale is in green indicating it was an actual sale, whereas all the others past sales are in black indicating there was no sale. Likewise, when I search 'Sold listings, I only get the US$ 897 sale. Maybe it was a shill bid.

Not withstanding the dodgy seller above, these are expensive models. Here's a similar ABC Brianza model for Euro 610 in Germany :

You had me very excited there for a moment Luc - and then Gary and Ian crushed my mood with their information on the expected costs. :shock: :cry:

Maybe we can go halves Martin, then we alternate the ownership every 6 months 😀.
