Le Mans Miniatures Matra-Simca MS650 No.33 Le Mans 1969.
Jean-Pierre Beltoise and Piers Courage.
After the craze for the unexpected performance of Henri Pescarolo’s and Johnny Servoz-Gavin’s MS630 No. 24 at LeMans in 1968, Matra Sport decided to accelerate the program and aim for victory at Le Mans one year early. The edition 1969 of LeMans 24 Hours race is epic.
After the destruction of the MS640 in April, the new Matra MS650 is manufactured in record time to be aligned in Le Mans. It is equipped with a long rear hood called a "pedalo" which improves the top speed. There are 4 small air intakes in the front and the air extraction from the radiator has been remodeled. The exhaust pipes are integrated into the rear diffuser to create a venturi effect. Many "Zus" appear on the body shell and headlights. The wheels are 5-spoke wheels with a central nut and the arch conforms to the regulations in force in 1969.
Matra Sport declines its color code and the yellow is reserved for the MS650. Since 1968, it is the Blue Seita Orly 915 that covers all Matra.Elf is the main sponsor, the blue Caltex is separated from the logo by the color of the car.The tires are engraved and stamped with Dunlop colors.
All these details can be found on the 1:32nd reproduction of this car, driven by Jean-Pierre Beltoise wearing an open helmet with an integral visor.
The body detail is absolutely stunning and finished beautifully. Simply unscrew the car from its presentation box, put it on your track, and drive... or just look and admire, time and time again.
