1984 + Ferrari Testarossa
Another Ferrari that should be included here is the 1980s Testarossa. The Ferrari Testarossa (Type F110) is a 12-cylinder mid-engine sports car which went into production in 1984 as the successor to the Ferrari Berlinetta Boxer. Ferrari built thousands of these in several variations.
The one shown here is a 1988 version.
The Testarossa name comes from those red covers on top of the engine.
There are also a significant number of diecast and resin models in all scales, mainly red naturally.
MY first one was from a resin kit by Starter of France which I did in black.
The one that I'm showing here is the DeAgostini partworks TESTAROSSA 1984 1/24 Scale Le Grandi Ferrari Collection No.5.
Many Ferraris qualify as Supercars. Perhaps others can add a few candidates here.
I had no idea Ferrari made cars with automatic seat belts (like old Fords) but maybe that was a good idea?

those automatic belts were awful in regular cars...a true eye sore in a Ferrari. Every very late '80s/early '90s Ferrari had them.
Following the invitation for more Ferraris ... LaFerrari by Tamiya Masterwork collection 1:24
This is a really nice 1/24 Ferarri Chav. Great photos too. Thanks for your contribution.Tamiya make really impressive models.
@david-green thanks David, will post more 1:24's, unfortunately there were not that many higher quality models made in my favorite scale.
250GTO by Western Models 1:24
Just spotted this addition Chev. I am delighted to see it as Western Models in 1/24 are rare indeed. Love the Ferrari GTO 250.
I have a 1/24 Western Models Jaguar XK 150 drop head coupe which I must photograph and add to the Forum.
Beautiful! Is the Western Models a white-metal? Might it be the same Western that made 1/43s?
Yes these are white metal in kit or fully made form by Western Models that also made the 1/43 line. They briefly also made kits in 1/87 for HO railway fans.
Wow! I never heard of that before. Thanks!
@david-green I am looking for a Jaguar Coupe ...
Here are two 1:24 models by Historic Replicas and PMA, especially for you David, you mentioned that Stirling Moss was one of your favorite drivers
@jkuvakas Western Models made 6 or 7 racing models in 1:24 branded as WM (kits and finished models as David mentioned), and many kits branded "Metal 24" similar to "Metal 43".
I am really impressed with these two Chav. I'm not sure which I like best. They are slightly different castings (a slight lean to Historic Replicas) but both are excellent.
I don't have a 1/24 Mille Miglia, Moss/Jenkinson 300SLR in my collection. I do have the 1/18 CMC and several 1/43 versions. I'd love one of these, especially signed on the plaque.
The 1955 Mille Miglia is to me the best drive for Stirling Moss in his whole career. Thank you for sharing these two.
