AUTO AVIO COSTRUZIONI 815
Auto Avio Costruzioni 815 – Alberto Ascari, Mille Miglia 1940
THE FIRST FERRARI
The Auto Avio Costruzioni 815 is Modelant’s first model, and in it we have applied all our philosophy to create a purely handmade slot car. Designed based on photographs and plans, modeled at a strict 1/32 scale from a block of putty using only manual tools, avoiding computer assistance or industrial machinery, and manufactured in a traditional way, one by one and completely by hand.
Our replica wanted to be faithful to the original model created by Enzo Ferrari in 1940, that is why sometimes you can find certain differences with the photographs of the current restoration, such as the inclusion of an interior mirror, front turn signals and rear lights or the front and rear license plate holders, necessary to comply with current traffic regulations, as well as the ‘815’ logo, which did not originally exist.
For the mechanics we have opted for MRRC, whose chassis gives it a noble behavior on the tracks even though it is a product of clear collector character, and it will be served in a transparent box with a careful presentation.
Production is limited to 300 numbered units.
