Online retailer Diecast Legends has bagged itself a rather cool exclusive - 500 Hot Wheels Ferrari 250 GT SWB signed by racing hero Stirling Moss. The famous racer signed the 500 models at Diecast Legends HQ and they're available to buy now online for £164.99. Below you can read the description from the Diecast Legends website:

"Mattel has released a 1/18 diecast model of Stirling Moss's winning Ferrari 250 GT SWB from the 1961 Goodwood Tourist Trophy. We are delighted that Stirling Moss has signed a limited number of this replica exlusively for Diecast Legends.The Tourist Trophy was a three hour endurance race for GT cars. Moss arrived at the 1961 event with the aim of taking his fifth consecutive victory in this prestigious event. The Ferrari 250 GT SWB, with its relatively low weight, powerful 276 bhp engine, well sorted suspension, and disc brakes, was the perfect tool for the job.

"But Mike Parkes, who was also driving a 250 GT SWB, made sure that Stirling had his hands full. Eventually Moss went on to win by a lap after Parkes wore out his rear tyres too quickly. Of course, Mattel's 1/18 replica of the Rob Walker Ferrari 250 GT SWB replica includes opening doors, bonnet and boot, and working steering. It also has all the accuracy and attention to detail you would expect. Mattel has made sure, for example, that the roundel on the car is the correct light blue."
