We all cannot own one of the spectacular Bizzarrini Spyders but now a few of us can own this special model set of all three Bizzarrini Spyders.
This is a limited and numbered edition of 100 sets. Ing. Giotto Bizzarrini’s signature is engraved on a brushed metal plaque on a beautiful black base with a clear dust free display cover protecting a model of each of the three Spyders.
Each of the three Spyders are made in 1/43 scale by Sparks Modeling with 120 separate components. This model set has the approval of Giotto Bizzarrini and the owners of all three of these special cars.
The scaled down badges of Bizzarrini, Stile Italia and Sibona e Basano are embedded in the base of the display stand.
Each original Bizzarrini Spyder S.I. was hand made in aluminum alloy by Stile Italia in cooperation with Sibona e Basano under the supervision of Giotto Bizzarrini.
(S.I.) stands for Stile Italia and (S.B.) stands for Sibona e Basano both were coachbuilders and designers in the 1960′s famous for working with aluminum alloy bodies.
This is a model set for the serious collector and enthusiast, which will likely not be repeated. The set pictured here is number 052/100 which I bought for my collection and I could not be more pleased.
The Bizzarrini Spyder model set is offered by Saturnian 1 Inc. If I did not already have a set I would go get one. The price is $245.00 US plus shipping and handling.
I wrote about the real Bizzarrini Spyders before.
