Toivonen 6R4 Stars On New IXO Delivery

posted in Diecast, Other Cars |

Today we received 16 new 1:43 subjects from IXO.

The star of the show was undoubtedly the MG Metro 6R4 that was driven by Harri Toivonen in the 1986 RAC Rally (RAC182).

The only other classic rallying replica on the delivery was Timo Salonen’s Nissan 240 RS from the 1984 Safari Rally (RAC160).

We think the Mad-Croc livery on the Matti Rantanen Ford Focus RS WRC 08 from the 2009 Rally of Finland (RAM391) looks great, and we also like the Mini Cooper WRC driven by Patrik Sandell in the 2012 Rally of Sweden (RAM493).

The latest subject in IXO’s 1:43 Le Mans Winners Collection came through our doors today too: the #2 Audi R18 TDI that Marcel Fassler, Andre Lotterer and Benoit Treluyer drove to victory in the 2011 Le Mans 24 Hours (LM2011).

Interesting road cars included the 2010 Jaguar XKR-S in British Racing Green (MOC138), the 2010 Land Rover Discovery 4 in black (MOC133), and the 2011 Range Rover Evoque in red and white (MOC144).

In other news, TrueScale Miniatures announced the 1:43 McLaren P1 Spy Car (TSM134367).
