As Sebastian Vettel picks up his first title and becomes the youngest-ever F1 World Champion, Grand Prix Legends is producing its 15th 1:18 F1 World Champion Presentation of the winning car and driver.

This piece of sporting history is limited as always to just 1,000 examples worldwide, and it features for the very first time a Red Bull Racing car.

Every year there is talk about making the racing in F1 closer and more exciting, but in recent campaigns there has been no shortage of drama and suspense in the championship - and the 2010 finale in Abu Dhabi was a classic. Four drivers were in with a chance of claiming the coveted crown and Vettel was very much seen as an outsider, but he secured a resounding race win from his tenth pole of the season. Nobody could have asked more of him and when Fernando Alonso and Mark Webber got stuck behind the Renaults, his result was good enough to earn the highly-rated young German his first world title.

The presentation will be a Minichamps 1:18 replica of the Adrian Newey-designed Red Bull Racing RB6 and will sit on a specially-designed 300-grade stainless steel base, with an inset panel at the back detailing all the races in this year's championship, the points scored by Sebastian in every round and his overall season stats.

The cars unfortunately will not become available until at some point in 2011, so you can't have them as a stocking-filler. However, don't use this as an excuse to delay making a decision, as these presentations are highly sought after by collectors and although 1,000 replicas will be made, they won't all be supplied to Grand Prix Legends so they will be in short supply.

If you want one to add to your collection from previous years, you will need to act quickly. Click here to order yours now!
