Hot Wheels Elite L7129 Ferrari 612 Scagliettis GT
The 612 Scaglietti is the result of an avant-garde design that continues the great Ferrari 2+2 tradition in fabulous style. Penned by Pininfarina, the 612 Scaglietti is named in honor of Sergio Scaglietti, the legendary Modenese stylist and coach-builder responsible for bodying some of the most beautiful Ferraris of the 1950s and 60s.
The two models offered by Hot Wheels EliteTM in 1.18th scale carefully reproduce the two Ferrari 612 Scagliettis, driven by teams of Chinese and international journalists, crossing the length and breadth of China during the ‘Ferrari 15,000 Red Miles,’ the first ever tour of China by a car manufacturer.
The 612 Scaglietti is not just another 2+2 but a spectacular, roomy two-door four-seater that’s a pleasure to be aboard regardless of driving conditions. The 1:18th scale reproduction is equally pleasingm with realistic detailing and die-cast metal.
Hot Wheels Elite L7125 Ferrari 599 GTB Blue
The Ferrari 599 GTB debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in February 2006. It takes its name from the Fiorano circuit Ferrari uses to hone the performance of its track and road cars. ‘GTB’ stands for ‘Gran Turismo Berlinetta’ and ‘599’ is the displacement of the V12 engine divided by 10.
The car was designed with several objectives in mind: to increase driving pleasure; to guarantee performance; and to ensure comfort, ergonomics and safety. It is a concentration of Ferrari’s most innovative and technologically advanced engineering solutions applied to a front engined two-seat berlinetta. The all-aluminum construction technology for the body and the chassis made it extra light. That, with the powerful engine which produces 620hp at 7,600 rpm, the car obtains a weight/power ratio of just 2.6 kg per horsepower.
A mixture of soft curves, sharp creases and a few challenging details that take a little time to fully appreciate, the body of the car integrated advanced aerodynamic solutions and performance figures with a beautiful Pininfarina design.
These two Hot Wheels EliteTM models reproduce the two 599 GTB used during the latest and most persuasive test of Ferrari. On an often grueling, 15-leg journey, a team of forty-eight journalists took turns driving from Belo Horizonte in Brazil to the Argentinean pampa; over Andean plateaus and through mountain passes some 13,000 feet above sea level; through the Central American tropics and across Mexico and the United States , with a final stop in Canada before reaching the final destination in New York.
