1/43 Bburago Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa by Shell Malaysia

This is a 1/43 scale model of the famous Ferrari  250 Testa Rossa. In the actual car, the engine top cam covers were painted bright red, the source of the name "Testa Rossa" - literally, "Red Head" - means nothing else apart for reference for the cam cover color.

By the way, this is some sort of purchase with purchase offier - you need to spend minimum of MYR30.00 (about USD7.27) of petrol or diesel before you can buy the car model at MYR 15.90 (about USD3.86) - OR you can buy their full synthetic engine oil and you will get 1 for free.

The box:

And the car (I actually did a bit of additional color customization using marker pen on the front grill and around the interior to make it looks a bit better - or so I thought):

Detailing is absolute minimalist considering the cheap price:

Overall, I think this is quite a decent representation of Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa at 1/43 on a low budget. It doesn't offer any extra eye candy but it is enough to show 250 Testa Rossa. Since it's almost impossible to get the actual car nowadays (they're extremely rare and quite pricey in the range of millions of US Dollars), we could at least get this 1/43 scale model and keep it at home safely.

Side by side with Ferrari 488 Spider which came from the same production/promotion from Shell Malaysia.

And we add the 360 Spider produced by Hot Wheels:

I simply love all these roadsters...
