Brumm has collborated with Spark to produce a 1/43 scale diorama of the legendary duel at Dijon-Prenois during the last two laps of the 1979 French Grand Prix between Gilles Villeneuve and René Arnoux.

Villeneuve's Ferrari 312T4 is a new release from Brumm (there will be several versions from various races during the 1979 season available) and Arnoux's Renault RS10 is by Spark. The latter is, as most are these days, made in China but Brumm's models make a nice change in that they are still 100% manufactured in Italy.

Available in September, just 1,000 of these wonderful depictions of such an iconic motorsport duel are being made and will be priced at €130.00 per set, reference no. AS58, and will come in a superb bespoke presentation box. For more information on this and all the 312T4 variants plus details of how to order, visit Brumm's specific 312T4 page at and to relive those incredible last two laps, go to and search for "Arnoux Villeneuve Dijon". You'll watch it more than once!
