Under the motto „Race on Sunday – Sell on Monday“, numerous so-called „Club Races“ took place in the USA in the 1950s and enjoyed great popularity among those actively involved as well as spectators. In these races, motor-sport-enthused private drivers were able to probe their driving skills and simultaneously push their mainly production-line sports cars to the limit, legally.
The corresponding vehicle dealers also put on suitable transport vehicles in support of their customers‘ vehicles at race tracks like Laguna Seca, Eagle Mountain or Elkhart Lake. For example, Volkswagen and Porsche dealer „Continental Motors“ of Fort Lauderdale in Florida operated an elegant and remarkable vehicle-trailer combination, consisting of an original VW T1 tractor unit and the associated trailer.
Thus vehicles such as the Porsche 550 Spyder or the Porsche 718 Spyder were able to be transported. Schuco is going to produce in a limited edition of 500 pieces a miniature model of this legendary VW T1 racing transporter to a scale of 1:18 in the PRO R line. This line, consisting of resin as the material, stands for exceptional and highly filigree small series models. By means of this highgrade model material, it is possible to produce very rare and exotic exemplary vehicles in perfect quality and also in low and exclusive production runs.
Under the guise of a Volkswagen Transporter is hidden an official Porsche model. It was first and foremost thanks to the Dakar that this steroid-fuelled Combi was born. Porsche wanted to win the race but needed assistance vehicles.
They set their sights on the T3 Synchro present in the Volkswagen range. It was fitted with a new box, new brakes, a Flat-6 Porsche engine with 230 horsepower and was named the B32.
Two copies were produced for the competition. Porsche decided to go one step further by producing a very limited civilian version (no more than 9 units) between 1984 and 1985. The rumor has it that they were more expensive than a 911.
Made by Ottomobile in scale 1:18 and available in july 2019.(No. OST327) Limited to 1,500 pcs.
Nieuw verwacht van KK scale in schaal 1 op 18. De Volkswagen T3 in Porsche uitvoering : B32.
Deze bus is ontwikkelt als team auto voor de Paris dakar races waar Porsche met de 959 aan meedeed. De B32 is nooit in serieproductie gegaan omdat deze met een Porsche Carrera blok gewoonweg te duur werd.
New expected from KK scale in scale 1 : 18. The Volkswagen T3 in Porsche edition : B32.
This Van was developed as part of the Paris dakar raceteam where Porsche participated with the 959. The B32 is never made as a production car because, with its Porsche Carrera engine, the B32 was too expensive.
