The silberpfeil measures 12.25" x 5.75" x 3.5". Spindizzies, a new series of scale model race cars, exact replicas of miniature race cars manufactured by German model maker Silberpfeil in the 1930's. Carefully molded using recycled aircraft aluminum capturing the beauty of the famous Mercedes Silver Arrows that once ran the Grand Prix, Le Mans and Nurburgring. Spindizzies aka Tether Cars were surprisingly sophisticated miniature race cars, tethered together to a pole in a banked wooden racetrack they could reach "dizzying" speeds of 150 mph. Lift the hood and admire the replica engine. Classic hand molded, hand finished and highly polished aluminum. Enjoy a truly unique piece of Grand Prix history as this sleek, shiny desktop racer brings the romance and dramatic beauty of the Le Mans to your room.
