McLaren cars have been represented in the Scalextric range for nearly 40 years from the M4A of 1969 through M9A, M23 (James Hunt) and then through the highly successful MP4 line from the 1990’s to now with the introduction to the Scalextric range of the McLaren Mercedes MP4-21 race car.
The Scalextric model
The car modeled is that driven by Fernando Alonso, reigning F1 World Champion. Both McLaren drivers, Hamilton and Alonso, are heading the Drivers Championship table and great interest is held in the battle between champion Alonso and rookie driver Hamilton.
An exclusive license arrangement gives the Scalextric fan the benefit of this years McLaren packaging showing the images of the drivers. This is exclusive to Scalextric. The close working relationship we have with McLaren also enabled us to pay particular attention to the special chrome finish on the body which was approved by McLaren.
The McLaren Mercedes is also one of the first cars to benefit from our brand new car packaging case. The new flip-top clear case shows the car to its best advantage on its angled plinth. The display case is ideal for displaying the car. Spare braid plates are attached to the underside of the display case. The case stacks neatly and safely so that columns and rows of cases make a neat and clear display on the shelf. Branding is bold and clear.
Digital chip installed.
Adjustable Magnatraction positions.
Quick change guide braid plate.
