Magnifique!

That's a HECK of a lot of cars (and bikes) - no wonder they had to raid the piggy bank to set it all up!

Some very nice cars in that selection.

As a market leader Scalextric have to appeal to the mass market, hence I would imagine, the Starsky and Hutch thingie!

Can't wait for the Lister, and the reintroduction of the Vanwall is a great idea. Scaley obviously monitor Ebay on a regular basis.

Not sure about the Ford GT, bit of a strange choice that one.

All in all a great programme. I wish them well.

Alan

What I think will be cool:

Porsche Boxter
Maserati Coupe
Audi TT Coupe
Dodge Viper Competition Coupe (Scaley version!)
Ford Gran Torino 1976 Starsky & Hutch
Ford GT (I hope it's the new GT 2005 version)

Yes, I Think it will be the Ford GT 2005 because Scalextric wrote Ford GT (not Ford GT 40). Nice to see Maserati Coupe return on track...

The Vanwall & Maserati, I guess similar to the Power & Glory cars before. If so, this is a superb move, I would love to see Scalextric release some of their vast back catalogue.


Pleasantly surprised about the Skoda Fabia WRC in the Scalextric line up. Probably more than likely a dead cert for an SCX release too; following hot on the heels of the previous SCX Skoda.

The new Ford GT, a wise move by Scalextric, no doubt compliment the classic/current version nicely and go down with the U.S. audience.

Dodge Viper & Lister Storm!?! taking the fight to Fly.


Ford Gran Torino 1976 Starsky & Hutch - Another (duff film) remake tie in. Nice car, but personally would rather see a competition spec:




Ford GT 40 Mk II Le Mans 1966 No 59 - Methinks they look good in White. I just wished they released an identical version to the German one.


Merry Christmas!

Jamie.

Can't wait for the Ford GT. It is a VERY nice car (as seen on the first top-gear of this series).

I wonder if Clarkson will be buying the Scaley one if he can't get the 'real thing'?

A few comments on some the new liveries :

- the latest F1 liveries come as no surprise, we almost expect those to come,
- there are two Porsches GT3. The Seikel one is likely to be from Le Mans, this a VERY spectacular livery
and then comes Freisinger's Porsche, likely to be the winning car from SPA
I love it ! No Racer's Group though ...
- I doesn't spring to my mind which livery is the #24 car but the 7eleven will be fine. I am quite surprised that there aren't more new liveries of this model
- the DTM Astra and the CLK : only two new liveries ?!? I'm starving !
- the JCB TVR has a livery that is quite close to the Mobil one that was done for Argos. I'm haven't yet figured out which livery is the other new one.
- can someone tell me the colour of the GT40 from Le Mans 1966 ? This is a yellow one ?

About some the new models :

- We already knew the Lister was coming but this doesn't say that it won't be eagerly awaited.

- the Maserati coupe is a bit of a surprise. It just hope it will be close enough to the car that will race in the GT class. (BTW, I think that all the Trophy cars had the same livery ?)
- The DTM A4 is likely to appear late in the year since it hasn't yet done any race. A logical choice, but they don't announce the Vectra or the new Mercedes ...
- I have strong doubts that the TT will be a racing version, especially as it comes with a Porsche Boxster in a range apart
- and then the one BIG surprise : a Viper ! Is it the new one or the first one ? I don't think the new one has already seen a racing track ? !

A few surprises as well :

First : one big surprise ... Neither BAR nor Jordan found their way on the list but there is already a new McLaren which recently got a new release ...
Two : no Prodrive Ferrari 550 ... I kept my fingers crossed ... This should mean that Carrera still have the exclusive rights for modern Ferraris.
Three : No new livery for the MG Lola ! (see my former anwser)

One question remain : are these all the new models AND liveries for 2004 ?

Thanks Jamie ...

It appears that the GT40 won't be a yellow one then ...

I discovered pictures of the second TVR in the meantime. It raced in the British championship in 2003. It's a white car with the british flag on the roof and depending from the race, a small yellow stripe on the front spoiler. Not very exciting. I would have preferred the blue one from 2001.

A merry Xmas to everyone as well.

Cheers,

Luc

Ooh.

I don't think it 's too bad there won't be many new liveries of the Astra and CLK, as in the new models, they're doing the new-shape Audi A4 DTM car, so as a DTM fan, there'll still be cool stuff.

Also, The NASCAR liveries aren't winston cup cars- They're a couple of british ASCAR "days of thunder" series cars from this year, pontiacs. they're Dramatic liveries, too- a US-flag based on (unity), and camouflage (TA)
Whether this means the ponty'll get updated to a sidewinder, I don't know. probably not, I guess.

The Viper is the comp coupe, which is the new car. It's not homologated for FIA or ACO competition, but i think it is run in SWC and there's definitely one running in the JGTC last year.

One thing, Were vanwall still going in F1 in 1961? if so, is it the classic vanwall, or the abortive, last-gasp, mid-engined car?

It looks like a great line-up. I really want the lister...

I agree with Russell, Pendle Slot Racing is the world's best slot dealer without queston. It's really great to see Scalextric doing so well.

Yesterday my youngest daughter (She is 6) and I spent the day racing 1960's Scalextric cars and we had great fun with a couple of Ferrari 250GTB.

I think that Audi TT and Porsche Boxter will be delivered in street version. The Maserati Cambiocorsa Coupe will be delivered in Trofeo 2003 version :

Maserati has just issued a "LIGHT" version for the GrandAm and national GT series. The body is slightly different (wider wings and different rear wing).

Scalexsite,

Can you tell us more about the release moments ?
