Wow, have we ever got the mother lode of new items for you this week!
New from Carrera
Carrera 23754 Ferrari 250 GT “Breadvan”, D124. $75.49
Carrera 23755 Ferrari 250 GT “Breadvan”, silver. $75.49
Carrera 23756 Ferrari 599XX, red, D124 – $75.49
Carrera 27362 Ferrari 458 Italia, blue – $34.99
Carrera 30566 Ferrari 458 Italia, blue, D132 – $53.39
Carrera 27365 Audi R8 LMS “Remington”. $34.99

Carrera 30142 Pro GT set, Digital 132 – $449.99
Carrera 30563 Ferrari 599XX, yellow, D132 – $53.39
Carrera 30564 Ferrari 599XX, silver-grey, D132 – $53.39. Yes, we know it looks like flat gray primer but actually, the effect is rather striking in a bad-boy kind of way.
Carrera 30565 Ferrari 458, silver, D132 – $53.39
Carrera 30575 Opel GT, red/black, D132 – $53.39. We’ve always thought the Opel GT looks like the runt in a litter of C3 Corvettes, but Carrera’s model, with the fat tires and flared fenders, needs only a wing on the back to look like a poor man’s Greenwood Corvette
Carrera 40013 Ferrari Formula 1 race set, Digital 143 – $166.69. Your formula one-literate grade schoolers can fight over who gets to be Alonso and who is stuck being Massa. But once they get past that hurdle and get on with racing there’s lots of digital racing fun at low cost.
New from MRRC
Well, friends, it looks like MRRC’s new owners have the resources to get new products out in a much shorter time frame and meet projected release dates. Here are the first two under the new regime…
MRRC MC11031 Ford MkIV, #3 LeMans 1967. – $63.99
MRRC MC11032 Ford MkIV, #4 LeMans 1967. – $63.99
New from Ninco
A little something for everyone, from dirty driving (see #50577) to classic motoring…
Ninco 50546 Audi R8 Lightning, S-Line – $86.99
Ninco 50556 Renault Megane Trophy green/yellow – $86.99. With that paint job nobody will be able to say they didn’t see this one coming…
Ninco 50577 Ford Focus WRC “dirt effect” – $69.99. Ninco appears to be taking up SCX’s penchant for modeling dirty rally cars. What somebody needs to invent is a slot car that gets progressively dirtier over the course of a race and then reverts to clean for the next one.
Ninco 50584 Classic Corvette, “speed record”. $79.99. Or paint it black and have a sort of B-movie Batmobile.
Ninco 50585 Cobra 427, Comstock Racing – $79.99. Here’s a car that was raced extensively in the US and Canada, perfect for your 1/32 scale USRRC grid.
Ninco 55015 Lamborghini Diablo “Fedon”. $59.99
Ninco 55030 Lamborghini Diablo “Fedon”, digital. $69.99
Ninco 55024 Corvette Z06 GT3 “Sangari”, Ninco 1. $59.99
Ninco 55031 Corvette Z06 GT3 “Sangari”, Ninco 1 digital. $69.99
More new cars
Scalextric C3218 Dodge Charger R/T, black road car. – $49.99
Slot Classic CJ37 OSCA MT4. Alfonso DePortago 1954 – $349.99. Cars like this aren’t for everyone, but if you enjoy hand-crafted works of art the Slot classic models are worth the price.
Slot It SICA19A Toyota 88C #98, Daytona 1989. – $64.99. Slot It offers a combinations of scale authenticity and performance that’s very hard to beat.. For best handling on a plastic track use a pair of 19mm silicones slicks and the racing magnet.
