I acquired these late last year. Just finally got around to buying a new battery and testing the 641 F1. I need to test the F40.

The largest is a 12-V Formula One Ferrari 641, replica of Alain Prost's 1990 car by Toys Toys. I believe these were sold in the US around 1991. This one was in brand new condition, un-assembled, with all original parts, some still in their sealed bags. It is almost 6 ft long, 2 speed and reverse.

The second one is the 6-V Ferrari F40 by Buddy L. I'm guessing this was from the late '90s, possibly early 2000s. I haven't tested it yet as I still need to buy it a battery.

The third car is a 1-V undefined Ferrari F1 car. (1-V = get a kid named Volta to jump in and "pedala")

Very cool, thanks for sharing! Looks like the F1 car has an actual (crude) friction brake on the back. Do you know if this is in addition to "electrical" braking with the motor?

Yes, you're correct, it has a pedal for the electrical brake as well as the hand brake.
