Yes but your picture (and all other shops having that picture) is showing car #2 which makes no sense as there was no Ferrari 512M #2 in LeMans 1971 (#2 was a Corvette).
The pair now with #12 and # 16 makes much more sense as they finished 3rd and 4th im LM 1971.
RRP £99.00. Thats one hell of an expensive lump of perspex? 2x 35.00cars = 70.00 + 29.00 for box? = 99.00
QUOTE But UK prices are not competitive against German prices (at least for me her in Switzerland)??????????
If you deal with a recognised full time dealer in the UK shipments outside the EU (Switzerland included) can be without VAT saving you 14.89% off the advertsied prices.
To be fair Sean, this is only the rrp so I have no doubt you and the other dealers will do a little better than that on the price. Also, at £45 each car for a limited edition model and £10.00 for the box that is not a bad price compared to other limited editions.
I am gonna treat myself to one, and I don't get a staff discount!

Sean, i know that very well (by the way: did you receive my order this morning, last time i used your secure online-order form it didn't work !!) but when i deal with a recognised full time dealer in German i can also deduct german VAT of 16%.
the slot-it 3 will fly off the shelf by collectors and racers- have to say slot-it could make a 'moped' mustang and we'd all flock to it - they do deservedly have the midas touch.
the spirit combo - they do look good I've only just started collecting (Scaly TVR 400 and Fly Lola T70) and once I've completed these I might either turn to the Spirit Ferrara 512 (or Fly). As such should I get these? Dilemmas, dilemmas! Mind made up - I will stick to general releases and not specials others the £'s mount up. Then again...........must be strong
I would like to add further by saying that it does look a nice set, and they are of course Ferrari's. It is far cheaper than the £££ I paid for the 3 car 'Racer' Daytona set purchased earlier in the year, but then again it is hand made and limited to 200 units.
I will add this Spirit set to my wants list, as I am collecting the Ferrari 512M's, but it will be behind the Slot.It Porsche set and Fly team viper set.
has spirit improved or changed the shape/mold slightly on the 512M?
I think its fair to say the initial pair weren't generally well received in terms of out of the box performance and scale accuracy with regard to the "dome" - they were typically described as squished?!
I have a soft spot for Ferrari and Le Mans of that era, but have been scared off Spirit....
Just looking for an updated opinion on this make and model.
Cheers, Ken R
