The 312T2 Ferrari Grand Prix car featured a number of modifications over the 312T, its immediate predecessor. New aerodynamic rules were imposed for the 1976 Formula One race season, meaning that, amongst other changes, the car no longer featured an airbox behind the cockpit.
Instead NACA shaped air intakes, a low-drag air inlet design, were incorporated into the cockpit sides, feeding air into each cylinder bank of the flat 12 engine.*The 312T2 was campaigned by Ferrari in the 1976 and 1977 Formula One seasons by Niki Lauda, Clay Regazzoni, Carlos Reutemann and Gilles Villeneuve.
It was also used for the first two races of 1978, before being replaced by the 312T3. Ferrari won the Constructors’ Championship in both 1976 and 1977 with the 312T2 and Niki Lauda finished second in the 1976 Drivers’ Championship with the 312T2, just one point behind the leader, James Hunt.
This fine 1:8 scale model of the Ferrari 312 T2 has been handcrafted and finished in our workshops with the co-operation and assistance of Ferrari regarding original finishes, materials, archive imagery and drawings.
The use of supremely accurate digital scanning of the original car has allowed us to perfectly recreate every detail at scale. Furthermore, it has undergone detailed scrutiny by both engineering and design teams to ensure complete accuracy of representation.
Every Amalgam 1:8 scale model is supplied in a luxury black presentation box and mounted on a carbon fibre or leather base protected by a clear acrylic dust cover. The model title, original branding and edition number are displayed on polished stainless steel plaques mounted at the front end of the base.
