Wow, a Porsche 906! Now that is a car. I hope it is narrow and 90mm, that is the only way it could be true to scale...

The Porsche 906 or Carrera 6 was the last street-legal racing car from Porsche. It was announced in January 1966 and 50 examples were subsequently produced. The engine regularly fitted was the 901/20 6-cylinder lightweight racing engine with 220 Bhp.

more info... on the Porsche 906 No. 148...
it happened to be the 1966 Targa Florio Winner driven by Willy Mairesse and Herbert Müller

The Targa Florio was an open road endurance automobile race held in the mountains of Sicily near Palermo. Founded in 1906, it was the oldest sports car racing event, part of the World Sportscar Championship between 1955 and 1973. While the first races consisted of a whole tour of the island, the track length in the race's last decades was limited to the 72 kilometres (45 mi) of the Circuito Piccolo delle Madonie, which was lapped 11 times.
After 1973, it was a national sports car event until it was discontinued in 1977 due to safety concerns. It has since been run as a rallying event, and is part of the Italian Rally Championship.
