CMC Auto Union Type C N°4 GP Allemagne 1936

Modèle magnifique dans sa livrée argent avec ses chiffres N°4 en rouge.\r\nCe modèle possède une prestance unique, c’est un élément indispensable dans une collection CMC puisqu’il a gagné le GP d’Allemagne de 1936.\r\nLa réalisation de CMC est sans reproches comme toujours, merci donc à ce fabricant pour ce très joli modèle.\r\n
