The model is delivered with the maintenance hatch open - just like Stirling Moss drove this race to save time in an emergency.
The 722 start number is beautifully shown on the high quality body paint.
Moss's first Formula One victory was in the 1955 British Grand Prix at Aintree, a race he was also the first British driver to win.
Leading a 1–2–3–4 finish for Mercedes, it was the first time he beat Fangio, his teammate and arch rival, who was also his friend and mentor.
The same year, Moss also won the RAC Tourist Trophy, the Targa Florio, and the Mille Miglia.
In 1955 Moss won Italy's thousand-mile Mille Miglia road race, an achievement Doug Nye described as the
"most iconic single day's drive in motor racing history." Motor Trend headlined it as "The Most Epic Drive. Ever."
Moss's time of 10 hours, 7 minutes and 48 seconds, and his average speed of 98.53 mph (159 km/h) for the 1000 miles,
set course records that still stand.
Comes with stunning Mille Miglie hard back book signed by the racing legend.
