Dussey that Bburago Testarossa is very rare today. I think Hot wheels makes one now but I always thought the Bburago was better somehow. Lovely pics though.

Thanks SuperSelect & Dippy, !! You are right, the Bburago model has a good finish and the detailing is also good , surely an exciting model.

Since we are on the topic of classic Ferraris, I thought I'd post one from my collection. My most favourite classic Ferrari the 1962 250 GTO 1:18 Bburago. I found it in a Mumbai hobby store in a corner with a slightly torn box. Picked it right up when I saw it.

Dussey hope you like this

I agree. I saw a 250 GTO in action on TV the other day. The V12 soundtrack was orgasmic to say the least.
