Slotcarworld has published Carrera's listing for 2005.

A few good and bad surprises.

The 512BB announced last year but then scrapped will finally make her appearance. Four liveries already planned.

The scrapped racing version of the Murcielago however remains that way. Too bad, especially since there are several liveries to be done by now.

Also coming are the already announced DTM Mercedes C-Class and the Audi A4 (seven liveries for these two) and the Maserati MC12. Note that the ref. has been changed for the racing version. I guess they will do the modified car and not the previously announced presentation racing car which couldn't be raced.

There will be a new Ferrari, McLaren and Toyota F1. When Scalextric failed to announce the BAR, I thought it might be Carrera but no ... SCX is our last chance ...

The Ferrari 430 is also announced. I had hopes that Carrera might bring a racing version of the 360 Modena but we will get a street car ...

Among the new liveries, we will get the 575 GPC from the 24H of Spa
and the Barron Connor from Le Mans. Those will also be available in the Exclusiv range (1/24) with a third livery (JMB 24H Spa). Why can't we get that one in 1/32 as well is beyond my understanding ... A new livery for the uovo Ferrari is also in the program.

New buildings and figures are also scheduled.

I'm angry, why the manufacturers add similar cars in their range : Maserati MC12 and Mercedes Benz CLK DTM (Scalextric - Carrera), Peugeot 307 WRC and Opel Vectra DTM (Scalextric - SCX)...

Save for the Mercedes which is a different car (C-Class for Carrera, CLK for Scalextric and SCX), yes, I do agree with you, especially for the Peugeot 307 WRC(done by Carrera, Ninco, SCX and Scalextric). While it is true that there a fewer cars to be done, we still don't get the Prodrive Maranello, the Modena or prototypes like the Courage, Pescarolo or Zytek and touring cars like the Honda Accord (ETCC) ...

Then we're in trouble I have an older SCX Arrows that I totally rebuilt. It was junk when I started, even with magnuts it wouldn't do a lap, and rebuilt it is competative with the Scalex cars.

Yes Gunther, it is very good news indeed. I wonder what will say the ones who were overwhelmed by the first releases. This is simply the best livery for that car so far.

I wonder - have Hornby and Carrera done some joint licensing deals? Both now do Ferraris and have announced a number of similar cars. Just a idle thought.

Personally I was pleased to see a good dose of new F1's!

At last a new Mclaren and a Toyota.
Plus we are suddenly spoilt for choice with Ferraris!
Any news on release dates yet?

Just a thought ... Carrera will be releasing the livery of JMB's Ferrari 575 during the 24H of Spa in the Exclusiv' (1/24) range but they did not announce it in their Evolution range (1/32).
Could it be that we'll get it as a limited release ?
