    This is a 1:43 diecast model of the championship winning car for the 9th FIA Formula One World Championship season held in 1958 driven by the British racing driver, Mike Hawthorn.

    The 246 used a 2417 cc Dino V6 engine with a 65° angle between the cylinder banks. This was the first use of a V6 engine in a Formula One car, but otherwise the 246 was a conventional front-engine design. The Ferrari 246 was not only the 'first' V6-engined car to win a Formula One Grand Prix, namely the French Grand Prix at Reims in 1958, it was also the 'last' front-engined car to win a Formula One Grand Prix at the 1960 Italian Grand Prix at Monza.

    As a racing driver for Ferrari and a F1 World Championship, Mike Hawthorn was featured in some of Smiths Empire Watches adverts until he was killed in a road car accident on the 22nd January 1959. (Picture 1 is an 'original' news paper cutting from 1958).
