It was the first car to bear the Ferrari name. The V12 engine was designed by Gioacchino Colombo, with some contribution from Giuseppe Busso and Luigi Bazzi.
The debut of the 125 S was at the Piacenza racing circuit on May 11, 1947, with the number “128” and was, in Enzo Ferrari words, “a promising failure.” Franco Cortese was forced to quit the race due to problems with the fuel pump when he was leading the race.
It was a few days later, at the GP di Roma on May 20 of the same year, that the first absolute victory in the history of Ferrari came, with the number “56” and driven by Franco Cortese again.
In the following four months the 125 S returned 12 times to the circuits and won five more races.
In our replica we have maintained the highest fidelity to the 1/32 scale, hand modeled and manufactured in our workshop in Sabadell using high-quality resin and photo-etched metal parts to provide greater realism, and opting for a traditional mechanics formed by a chassis of own creation adapted to the contour of the body with a bench and plastic supports of Scaleauto origin that guarantee optimal performance on the track.
Production is limited and numbered to 150 units. For the first time in Modelant we have had serious doubts about which would be the best decoration to reproduce, two great moments are culminated by this 125, the first race of a Ferrari, and the first victory, so we have decided to recreate the two historical moments. Thus, units 001 to 075 correspond to the first official race of a Ferrari, on the Piacenza circuit in 1947 with the number “128”, and the second version, units 076 to 150 represent 9 days later, with the number “56”, when the same Franco Cortese signed the first victory in the history of Ferrari at the Circuito di Roma. The legend began.
