Get both the Ford GT and the Corvette C7.R in this “Extreme Power” analog (the cars do not have working lights) race set from Carrera with over 20-feet of track and an overpass.


Carrera 25218 Extreme Power race set

8.2 x 5.8-feet, 20.7-foot lap length Ford vs. Chevy. This race offers the ultimate adrenaline kick. The latest version of the iconic Ford GT Race Car is fitted with a 3.5-liter, twin-turbo, V6 engine and a giant diffusor. Across the grid there’s the immensely powerful Chevrolet Corvette C7.R with a 5.5-liter, V8 engine. Both of them offer aerodynamics and power incarnate. The challenge is to keep this power under control with icy nerves and precision around the 20.7-foot circuit from the “Extreme Power” Carrera analog set. The numerous bends demand absolute concentration and drifting skills.

Slot It SICA35D Alfa Romeo 155 V6 T1 ‘Castrol’ n.26—PRE-ORDER NOW!

The Alfa Romeo 155 V6 TI is a racing car built to race in the DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft) series in 1993. At that time the German Touring Car Championship was the peak of technology for touring car racing, and it reserved for cars of Class 1 (first division or D1). The rules mandated cars with an engine displacement of 2.5 liters and 6 cylinders at most, derived from approved models and produced in no less than 25,000 units. The rules allowed deep changes to the car, provided that the external lines were maintained.

When Alfa Romeo introduced its 420 bhp, four-wheel drive 155, the more conventional rear-wheel drive Mercedes 190 couldn’t matched Alfa’s performance. In 1993, the Italian car dominated the category, winning 12 races out of 20 with its the two factory drivers, thus winning both drivers and constructors titles. To date, the Alfa Romeo 155 is the only non-German car to have won a DTM championship.
