I have published many entries dealing with Polistil F1s, but this time, I bring two sport prototypes. I am not very familiar with this kind of races, although I know that from the beginning to mid 80s, there was a lot of interest on them, or at least, much moer interest that nowadays. Many manufacturers did die-cast scale Sport Prototypes.
Especially famous in this era was the Renault Alpine A441.
From the mid 70s to late 80s, there were also some famous Sport Prototypes that had their scale version, and from the 90s on, it seems like they had disappeared from the face of the Earth. Of course they are still running (for example the 24 hours of Le Mans), but the cars are not so popular anymore, they are not in the media, and even most drivers are well known (many ex-F1 drivers), the competition fails to wake up the interest of common people.
Polistil always had a very exquisite selection of models, and those two here are no exception.
