Today we put another glut of Sun Star announcements onto our website. Oxford and Vitesse also announced new subjects today.
It wasn’t just rally cars in this set of announcements; we’re particularly pleased to see that Sun Star has announced a pair of British classics in the form of the 1:18 Triumph GT6 Mk.III in red (SS6001), and the 1:18 Triumph Spitfire Mk.IV in white (SS6002). We also like the look of the 1:18 Oldsmobile 88 that Lee Petty used to win the 1959 Daytona 500 (SS5245)
Matthew Wilson’s 2010 Ford Focus RS WRC 08 from the 2010 Rally of Great Britain (SS3948), and the Audi Quattro A2 that Stig Blomqvist drove to victory in the 1983 RAC Rally (SS4225), were the most interesting rallying replicas.
Oxford announced the 1:43 Austin Heavy 12 in Kingfisher Blue (OXF061), the 1:43 Jaguar Mk.VIIM in Ivory (OXF062), and the 1:43 Lotus Elan Plus 2 in Lagoon Blue (OXF063), while Vitesse announced the 1:43 Bjorn Waldegaard 1977 Ford Escort RS1800 from the Rally of Portugal (V42374), and the Ford Escort RS1800 that Angelo Presotto dove in the 1981 San Remo Rally (V42375).
