Isn't it amazing?

Who would have guessed a year ago that we'd be keenly anticipating Carrera releases?

What next: Round wheels and axles on all RTR cars?

I would have preferred the Prodrive 550 maranello (FIA-GT, ALMS & Le Mans racer) instead of the JMB 575 GTC (FIA-GT only), but it's already very good news !

Thomas, do you know which BB LM will be done ? There are two versions : the one that raced in 1978 (basically a street BB with a longer nose and a rear wing) and the other that ran in 1980 'till 1982 I think : much more rounded body (and much more appealling too !) with few similarities with the street version.

Of the new models, I have only had the Enzo and Aston Vanquish, so far, and am VERY impressed by the quality. Carrera now have the potential to be a major competitor with the other big manufacturers.

I'm tempted by the Go!!! cars since I have a lot of Artin 1:43 track at home and have a certain affection for this little scale - much more suited to my shoebox home than 1:32!

Does anybody know much about the Profi 1:40? I'd never heard of this until I saw this post. Any UK supplier able to provide them?

I agree with Dennis, the 1:24 cars are much more interesting to me. I could get some as my routed track has 4" lane spacing but they wouldn't fit in with the scenery :-(

Cheers,

John

In a previous topic about "cars you would like to see" I had the Ford Torino on my wish list so I am pleased to see that Carrera will continue to expand on its classic Nascar range.

..nice respond on this posting

About the 1/24-cars -as this is my prefered scale to race I'm happy with these news

For Evolution - the Ferrari is one of these




...some more pictures you'll find here
About the Carrera Profi - 1/40 - it's been mainly sold in Germany, Switzerland and Austria - tracks are 18cm wide, lane distance is something about 7,5cm. Surface is with a little more grip than the Evolution / Exclusiv-track - but there are only 2 different curves available and there are no borders available...

I'm a bit disappointed with the 1/32 offerings too. I have always admired Carrera for their willingness to make off-beat cars, esp. in their vintage line. I suppose I have been spoiled in this regard after getting the Merc 300, Maserati A6GS, Aston DB3, D Jag, and even the Uovo. But there are so many more beautiful classic sports cars of the 1950s that would fit well in the series -- Alfas, Lancia D-24, Cunningham, etc. I hope they will continue to expand the line.

Thanks for the news Thomas,

The Ferrari BB is the one that raced at Le Mans from 1980 'till 1982. One of the famous liveries was the blue "European University" and then there was a green EMKA as well (both from Le Mans 1980).

It is possible that it already raced in 1979.

I would have liked a racing version of the Modena as well. Maybe for next time ...

Woo hoo Carrera!

great new chassis and a bent for historical motor sport nostalgia! bring on those Ferrari!!

here is a link with all the real world 512 BB LM chassis reference:

http://www.barchetta.cc/english/All.Ferrar.../SN.512BBLM.htm

The entire site is a treassure trove of Ferrari info, pics and stats including ownership and current status if known of the particular chassis.

You can find the 512 BB Competizione which ran LM ahead of the 512 BB LM. The former is the more "street" looking. They made four of the Competizione versions that ran in the 1978 Le Mans. None finished. The 512 BB LM was homologated with 25 versions produced and ran Le Mans 1979-1982. Check out barchetta if you need more info!

Now if you can just get Mattel out of the way and distribute these beauties globally...

forza ferrari.

"Not a bad line up but where's the classic 1/32?"

I suppose the nearest is the James Bond DB5, pity it's not a DB4.

Cheers,

John
