It's the first Rally car produced by Fly too?

Woohoo

Forget the umpteen Subaru's Mitsubishi's etc.

Historical Rally cars anyday, much more exciting.

No it's not! Fly will be releasing the 911 S this year and that was a rally car.

The difference between the 911S and the 037 is that the Lancia never raced on a track while the 911S is an all-rounder.

I saw the pictures on SCI. Also on show are the prototypes from the 934 (looks fine but in the same state as last time), the viper (has been painted, otherwise not much difference either), the Gr.5 3,5 CSL (alternate body).

Picture of the next release (Alfa 147) are also provided : it seems really great.

The old Alfa GTA Bertone is well done, and also the Lancia 037 : other models on the neverending wish list!
The other Alfa, with n°1, is not a 147, but perhaps the new Alfa GT, which is on the street today in Italy, but the front resembles the 156

Is it an older prototype of a 156 racing coupè that was discarded from Alfa?

[Frantic scrolling sound] I see no reference to the Pegaso they promised. It is still on it's way, isn't it? Tell me it is! Please!

there are no ways about it, this IS a 156.

BUT the referance to the 147 is right, there will be one appearing i have seen pictures and it looks as though it is front motored..

rear wheel drive

Is the 1/1 147 a fwd boxer like it's predecessors the 33 and sud? If so that would be an interesting layout for Fly to emulate.

It's going to be interesting to see how this one sells. I personally would like one but while I seem to be able to part with £30-something for a Daytona or a CSL, I'm not so sure about a modern eurobox!

Common sense may prevail and I might wait till I see one knocked down somewhere, but in reality I will probably have to give in when I see it in the plastic, sitting in it's box pleading with me to give it a good home!

I am weak!

Well I'm going smash as bash the Fwd rumours why? because I looked at some interior pics and the centre console is quite high hinting a front motored rear drive layout, sorry boys, yes I wanted a Fwd car too!

Mr.M, I got my csl for 28.99, 31 quid at the door, I can really complain at that tbh.

so hopefully I can pick up 911's and 147's for the same

Alfa 147 is FWD but does not have a boxer engine; there are many options from the inline four 1,6 16 valve Twin Spark 105 hp to the 3,2 V6 250 hp of the 147 GTA; also some diesels like the 1,9 JTD common rail 115 hp; it is a good car, but obviously without the appeal and the history of a Daytona or a BMW CSL.
Instead the old Alfa GTA, on the body of the Giulia Sprint Gt of the '60, was a real race warrior and won many and many races in Europe, also with the last model called GTAM; today is an high priced classic. I have the Team Slot model
of this car, but quite frankly, I would like something better, also in the way of running it, and I think Fly will make a good model.

You'll be able to complain even better if I tell you what I paid today at MK for Fly yellow GT40 and latest red/yellow Daytona
