This is a 1:18 scale model of the Maserati ‘Birdcage’ Tipo 61 by Minichamps. This is an extremely rare model, incredibly signed by both Stirling Moss and Dan Gurney. They raced together and won the 1960 1000kms race at the Nurburgring (see photo). The Birdcage made it’s first appearance on the race track in 1959 and won on it’s first outing with Stirling Moss at the wheel.
The Birdcage was revolotionary, having more than 200 tubes to make up the birdcage like chassis. It proved to be a winning design and in the colours of the Lucky Canser’s Camoradi-Team had victories at the Nurburgring 1000kms races in 1960 driven by Stirling Moss and 1961
The model is new and comes with the original packaging, box and certificate of authenticity for the signing by both drivers.
