LATEST UNVEILING

C3828A Audi Sport quattro S1 E2

2000

First issued in 1984 the original Scalextric Audi Quattro proved to be as big a hit on the Scalextric tracks of the nation as the original had been screaming through Scandinavian forests. The Audi Sport quattro S1 E2 itself was introduced at the end of the 1985 as an update to the Audi Sport quattro.

 

Expected: August 2017

C3831A Bentley Continental GT3

scalextric

GT3 cars are amongst the most popular racing cars on today’s circuits and the first car of the 60th Anniversary Collection to be announced is the Bentley Continental GT3.

As Scalextric entered the second decade of the 21st century it has continued to bring technological advances to the slot racing arena. Following Digital has come ARC; a race management system that allows the user to wirelessly manage all elements of the ‘Scalextric race experience’ using Bluetooth technology via a tablet or smart device. ARC seamlessly merges the excitement of real-time slot racing, with the thrill of on screen gameplay.

 

Expected: May 2017

C3830A Aston Martin DBR9


The start of the new millennium saw the introduction of digital power bases, giving the opportunity to race more than one car on any lane. Now up to six people could race together at any one time. The new technology led the way to a new kind of exciting racing!

 

The car we are releasing from this era is a racing edition of one of the UK's most prestigious brands - the Aston Martin DBR9. 

 

Expected: June 2017

C3829A BMW E30 M3


In the 1990s production moved from the UK to China. This enabled the high detail now demanded by the consumer to be made available at a realistic price, plus resources for the design and development could be stepped up in the UK headquarters.

 

Winning more titles than even the Porsche 911, this high-performance German built car has been raced in many events across the world, racing under the manufacturer’s team colours, as well as other top teams such as Prodrive and AC Schnitzer.

 

Expected: July 2017

C3828A Audi Sport quattro S1 E2


Magnatraction was added to the cars during the 1980s. This helped racers keep the ever-improving performance and speed of the cars on the track, but still enabled the skill required to be improved as well. New technology also enabled fabulous detail to be included.

 

As part of the huge Volkswagen group this highly recognisable car had huge resources behind it to make it hugely successful during the decade. With its 4 wheel-drive technology, it took full advantage of the rule change in the rally racing world during this period.

 

Expected: August 2017

To be unveiled in June...


The 1970s was a difficult decade for the brand, and it mirrored the economic plight of the UK at the time. However it was the decade where tampo printing was introduced, which added far more detail to the cars, reflecting the increased sponsorship the real thing were carrying.

 

Rallying had a car in the 1970s that summed the decade up. With its then unusual futuristic look, the car was immensely successful and soon became an icon and one wanted to be driven by the top drivers of the day.

 

Expected: September 2017

To be unveiled in July...


The 1960s saw the Scalextric brand develop and grow, with new cars, track pieces and sets appearing to satisfy the ever growing appetite of the young and now adult racers too. This was the decade where working lights were first added to the cars.

 

This lightweight version of arguably the 60s most iconic car, once described by Enzo Ferrari as “the most beautiful car ever made”, raced to great success in many sports car events, flying the flag for its British manufacturer.

 

Expected: October 2017

To be unveiled in August...


It’s 1957 and Scalextric makes a spectacular arrival at the Harrogate Toy Fair, then the premium event for the toy industry. Immediately the brand makes an impact, with young boys putting it on or near the top of their Christmas wish list!

 

Fangio and Moss – two of the world’s most famous and successful Formula One drivers, drove this all-conquering Italian-built front-engined car, that was the last of its breed before the new rear-engined types arrived on the scene.

 

Expected: November 2017
