What can be more 70’s than this Ferrari Dino 308 GT4 ? It might not be what you think about when you think Ferrari, but it’s exactly what I like! It’s an underrated model for sure (both 1:1 scale and 1:64 scale), and it’s a shame, because it is interesting for 2 reasons.
First, it was the first Ferrari to have a V8 engine in rear central position. Second, it was the only Ferrari designed by Bertone. Of course, you can easily recognize the lines of this designer. This car is very much like Fiat or Lancia.
The Kyosho replica is very good, and only seen once in this discrete collection VI. It was available in yellow, red and silver. The only complaint I could say is the treatment of the wheels, that are a little too wise. The real car wheels are more aggressive.
I’ve put my little Enzo figure out of it’s chair, to do some shoots. I’m not entirely sure the old man would have had such a casual attitude on his cars, but the temptation was too strong. This little figure is from my JEC 1:64 Ferrari 250 GTO, that you can find here in eBay.
All in all, it’s one of those Kyosho Ferrari I would bring on a desert island, and that is classified under “underrated ones”. Love it.
