Modelo : Ferrari 312P
The Wave 1 release of the Ferrari 312P uses the same US casting as the 1970 domestic versions. The biggest difference is the paint colors. The black trim paint on the rear
differs in appearance and the tail lights have a hand painted appearance. It apparently came with stickers and the tin button is also known.
- Enamel Red
- Metallic Purple
- Metallic Blue
- Metallic Green
- Silver Chrome
- Pink over Chrome
- Medium Caps in front
- Large Caps in rear
The CIPSA version of the Ferrari 312P utilizes the US based casting. The enamel red version is very similar to the US version.
The other colors are more easily recognizable as the paint colors are obviously different from their domestic counterparts.
US vs. CIPSA (C)
The enamel red paint is a bit different than that seen on a US red enamel 312P. It has a matte finish with some texture to it.
The interior piece may be a slightly different color than the US interior.
Tail Light Details of CIPSA vs. US
The black detail paint on the rear of the CIPSA (L) is also different in texture and gloss. The orange of the taillights is different in color and application.
There are no noticeable casting differences on the CIPSA base(R). However, the spins show some of the sloppiness found on almost all CIPSA cars.

The first CIPSA Ferrari 312P was sold on eBay in late May 2005 by a Mexican seller. It is reported to have been found in a CIPSA made track set with an
orange enamel McLaren. The McLaren has never been seen.
