Description  

At the end of 1975 the Austrian Niki Lauda (team's second driver) was crowned F1's world champion. Here the man's and machine's successful career begin, the car: a Ferrari 312T. 
A revolutionary F1 with 12 horizontal cylinders engine (named flat 12) and traverse gear box (this is the T's reason ), with an astonishing aerodynamics and a construction quality early several years to their time.

In 1976 the regulations changed, the periscope air intake could not exist anymore, because the maximum height was limited and some extra security measures were imposed in the cars.
Then the 312 T2 was born, with which Niki gave up the Japan grand prix, leaving his Ferrari intact in the box and losing the chance of obtaining for second consecutive time the driver's world championship.
The 312 T2 model evolved until the end of 1977 , when the incredible Niki gets the maximum position and obtains his second championship.
In this way culminates the most successful chassis in the Ferrari's history.
The following year the T2 was replaced by a completely evolved design the T3.

A small Japanese company, Chevron models, manufactures a handmade kit to transform the Ferrari 312T into the last and curious 312T2, that highlights for its water radiators and air exit position.
The new about this "transkit" is its vacuform manufacture, method not used in car modelling.
