Fiat 642 RN2 Bartoletti Ferrari Racing Transporter (1957) in Red (1:18 scale)
- The 1950s & 1960s are known as an era that witnessed a boom of race car transporters, which are being re-discovered today & held in a high regard. The two similar-looking transporters of the Scuderia Ferrari & Maserati might well be the most famous & technically most mature transporters of those days. They were mounted on Fiat-bus chassis of the type 642 RN2. With an open body work designed by Bartoletti, the resultant transporter was good for hauling three race cars. At first sight, those two transporters, equipped with a 92 hp diesel in-line-engine, look alike except for paintwork & decals. But upon a closer look, they differ in a considerable number of details. Back in those days, it took a transporter to haul race cars to the race track from time to time. But transporters were not limited to hauling a precious freight only. They had quite a few other functions, too. In each of the transporters, a small but complete inspection bay was set up. It was also used as the crew quarters. This was where the head-quarters were located, in addition to providing a crew space & a sleeping berth during the hectic race weekends. Many crew members spent the majority of their time working in & around those race car transporters. It virtually became a second home for them. Please note: This item does NOT include the race cars shown in the large picture.
