Named Djelmo from the names of egyptian prince Djellaledin, the financer, and italian Edmondo Moglia, the designer, it was built in 1924 to attack the Land Speed Record. The project was delayed for several years until it ended in disaster in 1927 when driver Giulio Foresti miraculously survived a terrifying accident on Pendine Sands in Wales. (Photo from my archive)
The model pictures the car as it appeared at pendine Sands in 1927. Please note the "Djelmo" name was painted only on the left side. Read the story of Djelmo for more details.
