Bidding frenzy for a foot long Maserati...<br />
<br />
An exceptionally precise scale model car comprising 4,000 individual parts that took an engineer nearly 200 full days to build has sold for £21,000. <br />
<br />
The sophisticated 1:13 scale model is an exact reproduction of Maserati's 250F 1960s Formula One racing car that includes an exhaust system, tyre tread detailing and  functioning suspension. <br />
<br />
Each component was based on carefully taken measurements and drawings of a full size 250F then constructed from scratch. <br />
<br />
The model was sold, along with an engraved brass plaque by the modelmaker, at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in West Sussex at the weekend.
