Teamslot Alpine A310 PROTOTYPE.

In the final stages of prototypeing Teamslot will be releasing the Alpine A310 in March 2011. Slotforum were given exclusive access to the factory and given a tour (see full article in the resources section).

Alpine A310 Group 5; This is in the very final prototype stages with Oscar making final tweaks to the master prior to production. The correct versions of this car will be made, in both slim and fat flavors with changes to the model being made to correctly represent the rally and endurance versions. This model will also be the first to include a new chassis concept but Teamslot. Designed with the racer in mind the chassis comes as standard with inline motor, but is produced to directly accept a Slot It HRS2 angle winder insert. Due for release within the next month the first livery will be a blue road car, closely followed by Gitanes and Calberson liveries.



Whilst there we were also shown 3D CAD mock ups of the new Teamslot Opel Ascona due for release in November.

Great post Gareth


Alpine looks very interesting can't wait see the finished car.

Some must have Rally cars coming out from Teamslot.

Factory tour is a great read and a eye opener !

Excellent report. Shame I wasted my money on the Revell Ascona.

Do you know if Teamslot are using the new chassis idea on all their future releases?

Once again we owe you a vote of thanks for your time and committment on behalf of the forum. Great news about the wheels
it`s really good to have a look behind the scenes. Where`s Oscar is he camera shy?
Cheers - Phil

Hmmm... I was going to buy one of the Avant Slot - Renault Alpines,
but now I may wait to see what these look like in person.

Thanks for the post.

I like the shape of the Teamslot Alpine more than the one from Avant Slot. I already was fond of TeamSlot but now after seeing them as a family business I am even more. They assemble each car by hand just 4 people? Man, they deserve a medal.

I am dying for the Lancias Delta.

Extremely interesting reporting and photos, Gareth, many thanks.

Can't agree more with you rallyP!

I think they could boast that their cars are hand made in Spain!

Gold edition cars with alloy wheels ? Lancia Delta Gold Edition ? I'm saving my money right now for one of the Lancias.

Thank you for this most interesting article!
