Model of the 1950 BRM V16 Prototype P15, by internationally recognised British model maker Jeff Luff.
After the second world war, British Racing Motors (BRM) was the much-publicised British torchbearer for Grand Prix racing success.
This is a 1:12 scale model, hand made in wood, resin and metal of the car as it appeared in 1950. Jeff Luff's signature is marked on the underside of the car.
Dimensions: 13⅜ inches/34 cm (approx. length).
At the Goodwood Festival of Speed this year (2021) they celebrated both BRM’s inaugural Grand Prix 70 years ago and the launch of a series of 3 faithful modern-day recreations of the Type 15, as it was at the end of its F1 career in 1953, built by historic restoration specialists Hall & Hall. The weekend included a track parade of original BRM examples as well as several of the cars taking part in the racing action.

Jeff Luff grew up near Goodwood during the 1950s and ‘60s. Forming a lasting impact, many of the cars he saw racing at that time have become the focus of these models. Formally trained as an architect modeller, the bulk of his career has been producing special effects models for film studios, as well as turning his hand to exceptional motorsport replicas.
