The yellow / black scalextric Mustang is out. But maybe it should be 'A yellow / black Scalextric Mustang is out - not the one Scalextric described and we all expected though...
On all the advertisement pictures the Mustang is a 1969 (easily recognizable with different grill and the four lamps at the front). Strangely enough and without warning Scalextric has choosen to make the 1970 Mustang instead. Another issue is that the 'paint scheme' is a significantly different one from the one seen on pictures. Basically the only thing that the slotcar has in common with the pictures is that it is a black and yellow street mustang. It is surpirzing considering that none of these changes are needed because Scalextric has the right car model (1969) available AND the paint scheme that was advertised is hardly more difficult to make then the one they actually made.
WOW! That's going some for a large capacity V8 (capacity-challenged Limey here!). Had that motor been worked on to get it to rev that high (balanced, lightened etc.)
I used to have an SD1 Rover 3500SE which had the 215ci alloy V8 based on the 50s Buick motor. It had hydraulic cam followers which pumped up at around 6000+rpm thus acting like a limiter, although I doubt a stock motor would rev much higher. No point to that however, because the power had gone by that time.
