Description

A BRM Formula One car made for Clay Regazzoni (Pierfranceso Favino) in Ron Howard’s racing biopic Rush. This vehicle is one of only nine prop cars built for the film; the other cars used were genuine period racing vehicles. In the film, Regazzoni was Niki Lauda’s (Daniel Brϋhl) teammate at BRM. Initially taken aback by Lauda’s ‘rent-a-drive’ position, his stance was soon softened by Lauda’s skill on the track and in the garage.

The car is based on a custom-fabricated chassis with a fibreglass body, Rover V8 BUT engine with a wet sump and an Elite sequential gear box. The car features a red and white finish and vinyl decals for BRM’s key sponsor Marlboro as well as several other sponsors. “BRM” is displayed prominently on the engine cover and Regazzoni’s name appears in white below the vehicle’s cockpit. The cockpit is simple, featuring a black steering wheel and a black and blue safety harness.

The chassis was designed to accept a number of different exterior shells, allowing the same platform to serve as different vehicles within the context of the film. These fabricated prop cars are highly authentic, and the mechanics working on the film stated that they had difficulty discerning the difference between the modern reproductions and the originals.
All fuel and fluids are drained from the vehicle, and the battery is removed. The vehicle remains in very good condition. Also included is a generic pit-lane jack.

This is an exciting opportunity to purchase what must be the ultimate “movie prop” in iconic livery built to an extremely high standard to exacting measurements in order to replicate the  original for film purposes. Whether it be for fun, show or a centre piece to your business, this must be seen to really appreciate it. Fantastic!

PLEASE NOTE
This car is substantially modified from its original engineering and should not be used to drive. It is offered in a static ‘rolling only’ condition with battery removed.

Das Fahrgestell wurde so entworfen, dass verschiedene Außenschalen angebracht werden können, um im Film als verschiedene Fahrzeuge zu dienen. Diese fabrizierten Autos sind so authentisch, dass die Mechaniker welche an dem Wagen gearbeitet haben, Schwierigkeiten hatten, den Unterschied zwischen der modernen Reproduktion und dem Original festzustellen.
Jeglicher Brennstoff und Flüssigkeiten wurden vom Fahrzeug abgegossen, und die Batterie ist entfernt. Das Fahrzeug ist in einem sehr guten Zustand. Maße: 410 Cm x 200 Cm x 135 Cm (161” x 79” x 53”)
Dies ist eine tolle Gelegenheit deines der ultimativen Film-Requisiten zu erwerben, welches im äußerst hohen Standard zu anspruchsvollen Maßen gebaut wurde. Egal ob nur zum Vergnügen, oder zu Ausstellungszwecken, dies muss man selber erlebt haben. Fantastisch!

BEACHTEN SIE BITTE:
Dieses Auto ist von seiner ursprünglichen Technik wesentlich modifiziert worden und sollte nicht zum Fahren verwendet werden. Die Batterie wurde entfernt, und wird in einem “ nur zum Rollen” Zustand angeboten.
