CARVtech's collection of die-cast replicas in 1:43, 1:18 and 1:12 scale
A collection that started over 10 years ago and is still ongoing. It includes historic and modern F1, GT and Rally cars, historic and modern sports cars and super cars.
Pride of place is held by two very special drivers in the modern F1 era (1) a collection of Ayrton Senna vehicles, including his first win in Portugal 1985 with the Lotus 97T and last race at San Marino with the 1994 Williams FW16 and (2) a collection of the F1 cars driven by Michael Schumacher from year one at Jordan and then Benetton in 1991, to the end of his Ferrari contract in 2006: it includes each of the seven championship cars representing his Driver's Championship titles..
There are a couple of really rare, signed and authenticated cars by Dan Gurney (289 Shelby Cobra - 1st FIA GT win), Jodi Scheckter (1976 Swedish GP winner, Tyrell P34 6-wheeler), Michael Schumacher (2006 Ferrari F248 F1) and Jean Todt (1996 Ferrari F310, Michael's 1st Ferrari).
Most of the collection features the cars and drivers that have won their respective races or championships (F1, LeMans, WRC etc). The street cars tend to be the homologated super cars, be-spoke creations and the classic sports cars. Ferrari and Porsche dominate the collection.
Before we started driving on computer simulators, Scalextric was the best thing short of a real car. A small but fully functional collection includes some F1 cars from the 1980' & 90's, FIA GT cars of the 1980's that include the Le Mans winning factory and private Porsche 956 Long Tails, German Touring Cars and a couple of WRCs from the late 1990's.
Expecting some new pieces in soon and will update this page as the collection grows. Hope you all like as much as I do.
