Slot Classic have just announced that they will be producing the Ferrari 250 GT SWB in two versions; the 1960 car (ref. CJ22) and the 1961 version (ref. CJ23).

Ref. CJ22 is available in red as a road car, or as the Gran Turismo class winning 1960 Le Mans 24 Hours car of F. Tavano and "Loustel".







Ref. CJ23 is the 1961 Gran Turismo class winner of Pierre Noblet - Jean Guichet.



Slot Classic has also brought out their own plastic chassis, with adjustable wheelbase:-



The cars will be available in RTR and kit form from July 2004.

QUOTE (tDI_Fahrer @ 24 May 2004, 08:06)Is slot classic nice to drive?
Nice, yes it's nice but you should be careful with it as with the actual 1:1 car today: they are fine as you don't go fast. They break easely and it's a pity to do it at so beatiful car.

Enjoy it.

Fantastic. I'm a big fan of Cesar's cars and can thoroughly recommend that everyone has at least one Slot Classic car in their collection whether you're a fan of the period (mainly 50s/60s) or not.



As delfi says, treat them like you would a 1:1 version..

QUOTE So it's a car ment to sit on the shelf?
Definitely not, but I wouldn't take mine along to regular club races. They are classic stress relievers, so after a hard day you take one, put it on your home track, drive it quickly and enjoy. Just make sure your track catch fencing is in place.

They are very nice to drive fast and forgiving at their limits. They are non-magnet cars, no doubt you could add a mild magnet and maintain the car's character. Overall they perform very much like a Ninco Classic that's had some weight added -- in this case, the resin body adds traction and stability.
