What Is a New slot worth

What's a new slot car worth? several of the new car review have had remarks about the cost of resin handbuilt slot cars. This morning I received a Slot Classic RTR Pegaso Spyder for a magazine article, which I will also post here when finished. These are not cheap slot cars cost around £125 from dealers like Sean,but to me they are excellent value for money.

In the one post it was said that Fly may be making Pegaso model slot cars would these be better value for money? (at around £35-unlimited) depending on how many they make? are they a so called limited editions ( to me this must mean very small numbers 100 or less not how many they think they can sell )

If Fly or any other manufacture produced a new slot car then only made around 100 or so RTR of them with the rest of the 400 being kits how much would these go for?

The finish on the Pegaso is much better than on a Fly or other similar model and so is the detail. How many time do you see on Ebay a Slot Classic Factory RTR for sale?

The most beautiful slot model I have ever seen is a resin Ferrari 1957 "Le Mans" sport car, which is currently in the Pendle Slot Racing shop on display, Could Fly or Scalextric or any other company make such a wonderful job of a slot car personally I don't think so.

So is the Pegaso worth the money, to me personally yes, I don't buy many slot car any more as I have far to many already. So when I do they must take my breath away because they are so beautifully made.

Interesting thread, more so as the Classic Adelaide rally is due to start. If you have qualms about driving or racing a car worth several hundred Euro/pounds etc, would you race a 1:1 scale vintage Ferrari, Jaguar D Type or GT40?

Well some owners are. The list of entries, at Classic Adelaide entries, has a pair of D Types, a Lister, two very rare 1950's Mercedes and others. If you think its a gentle parade, Sir Jack Brabham had an almighty crash at speed in a Ferrari (or was it an Aston Martin) in a previous rally -- have no doubt, these classics are raced.

So back to the thread, like Swiss my resin cars get track time for the same reason the owners enter Classic Adelaide -- these cars are meant for the track. I don't race them but I do drive them.

Just like these ones will be in Adelaide ...
