1960 Maserati Tipo 61 Engine in a Showcase by CMC in 1:18 Scale


Coming Soon. Pre-Order to reserve.
The finest Maserati Tipo 61 Engine in a Showcase.  This diecast model is manufactured in 1:18 scale by CMC.

A charmingly graceful body designed by the mastermind Giulio Alfieri, who integrated a light frame of barely 30 kg with more than 200 single pieces of tube. Because of this engineering innovation, the Maserati Tipo 60/61 acquired the legendary nickname Birdcage. Only 23 units were made during the years from 1959 through 1961.

This model is composed of 1,140 single parts, 507 of which are made of stainless steel, copper, and brass. This model is an exact replica of the winning car of Moss/ Gurney. What is extraordinary about its build is the adherence of its body to a cage-like framework as if it were a second skin. While looking at the exact details of this model, you are likely to feel transported back to the adventurous experience of racing in old times.
