The Forgotten Ferraris, presented by Looksmart and Toy Collector Toy Collector and Looksmart worked once more in close cooperation to release the promotional blog about Maranello's more unusual products.
News-Antique.com - Aug 17,2010 - Toy Collector has been teaming up once again with leading Italian diecasters Looksmart for a look back at some of Maranello’s more unusual products, in a promotional blog entitled “Forgotten Ferraris”.
Illustrated with models from the back catalogue of Looksmart’s handmade 1/43 diecast range – which includes dozens of models of Enzo’s finest cars – the promotional blog will cover coachbuilt Ferraris like the Felber Ferrari beach car, showcars like the Mythos and production vehicles like the California Hard Top, as well as some of the myriad modern racing series cars like the 599 “Panamerican 20,000”. The first three entries are online now and can be read here: http://www.toycollector.com/index.php?option=com_myblog&category=Forgotten+Ferraris&Itemid=983.
Toy Collector previously showcased the Lamborghini models produced by Looksmart and its sister brand, MR Collection, in a Lamborghini-approved blog tracing the marque’s history. The site also joined with Audi to promote the maker’s centenary in 2009, covering the Audi story through models supplied by Audi’s Accessories division which were later auction for charity. A further Audi tie-in event – marking 30 years of quattro – kicks off shortly on the site.
Looksmart produces finely detailed 1/43 diecast models of the world's finest cars, including Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche and Audi - handmade, naturally. It holds exclusive licence to manufacture models of Audi's concept cars. Made in strictly limited numbers, its models sell out quickly and are in high demand worldwide.
