Slot.it - Nuremberg International Toy Fair 2015
Audi R18 etron 2013: It was already announced for 2014, but production has been postponed to 2015, for the first time ever in slot car racing, an LMP car is modeled with a fully working, and effective, miniaturized 'grand complication' 4WD system, based around a toothed belt with special front shaft differential effect, never seen before in slot cars.
Coupled with the unique Flat-6 aw LMP setup, we proudly believe that this will be the benchmark for slot car models reproducing the Le Mans winners of 2012 and 2013.
Two models are planned for 2015: the 2013 winner, in a beautiful celebrative, limited edition case on stock at the end of the year and the black Le Mans test car on stock in April, both faithfully reproducing the 2013 'long tail version' of the Audi R18 e-tron racer.
These models take advantage of existing Slot.it Audi R18 chassis.
