This is a Vitesse model #634 of 2500. It's a Honda RA 272, V12, 60degree, 1495 cc. The engine created 220bhp @ 11,000 rpm transferred to the wheels by a 6 spd tranny. It was driven by Ronnie Bucknum in the '65 French GP. The first Honda F1 I recall was driven by Ritchie Ginther in the Mexican GP. I thought it was really unique in that the engine sat transverse. It also had a bit of a different nose treatment. I'd like to get my hands on that one.

The old Vitesse / Quartzo range produced some great Grand Prix cars such as that Honda.

I will need to get a couple, specifically a Porsche 804 and a JPS Lotus 72D or 72E. Premium Classixxs have announced an Opel Blitz race transporter from the early 60s in Porsche livery & Spark are to make an early '70s Dodge transporter in JPS Lotus colours.

The Porsche will be one driven by Dan Gurney, but, I can't decide between Fittipaldi, '72 Champion, or Peterson for the Lotus - will probably go for "Mad Ronald".
