#622 NACORAL- BIZZARRINI "MANTA" (Ref. 308) (1972)



Another great model by Nacoral of Zaragoza, Spain.
This cast is a beautifully detailed Bizzarrini "Manta" in 1:43 scale. The car is a relatively rare car designed by Italdesign Giugiaro in 1968/69, I did not even know this car existed, and now, watching photos of the car I am amazed by its design. The car was also reproduced in 1:64 scale by Corgi Toys (in the Corgi Juniors series) and also by Mercury. Nacoral and Mercury models are based on the same cast. Recently it has been made by other manufacturers.



Only one unit of the car was manufactured for a race, and the model is now in private hands.
