I thought it might be fun to try and guess what new models Scalextric will be announcing next week. This is not a wishlist, just a fun predictions thread that we can check back on later to award bragging rights.

 

GT

I‘m really hoping for the new Aston Martin Vantage GTE but I think more likely will be the BMW M6 GT to go with the already announced Fords

 

BTTC

I don’t think there’ll be any new models, just reliveries of the existing ones

 

Legends

A retool of the Aston Martin DBR1?

 

F1

Maybe  a 2017 Mclaren in the new orange but more likely a new version of the Hamilton/Bottas Mercedes

 

any other guesses?

I - along with many others - thoroughly enjoy reading the Test Track blog on the last friday of every month. I have a suggestion for a future edition-

 

How does Scalextric decide on which cars to model? Is there market research? We've seen lots about how you start the modelling process by visiting the original full sized cars, but who is it that decides you're going to make a McLaren 720 instead of an Aston Martin Vulcan, or a Porsche 918? How do you obtain the rights etc.? 

 

Thanks for all of the blogs so far and keep up the great work!

Already pre-ordered the second Ford Falcon that may or may not be associated with a certain warrior of the road! I couldn't see a doggie in the passenger side of the car though. An oversight or a deliberate attempt to make the driver MAD to the MAX?

I completely agree with Roger from Switzerland above that most scalextric collectors and racers are fully grown men that grew up watching classic films and TV. How about the Back To The Future Deloreon or a retool of the Knight Rider Trans Am? Id also love to see an A-Team van and a Smokey and the Bandit Firebird.

Here, here! I have been campaigning for this ever since my pre-order was cancelled. I'll be asking the boys again when I see them in Gaydon!

How about a Lamborghini Countach? it was always my dream car as a kid and I'm sure it would sell in droves

I'd love the Aston DBR1 to come out too, but Scalextric did make the Mercedes 300SLR to race against the Jag. There was a set from the 1955 Le Mans (C3058A) which included both cars
