Spark Releases Loeb’s Last Rally Car

posted in Diecast, Other Cars |

Today we received a new delivery from Spark, and TrueScale Miniatures announced nearly 50 new 1:43 subjects.

The top dog on the Spark delivery was a 1:43 replica of Sebastien Loeb’s Citroen DS3 WRC from the 2013 Rally of France (SPKSF063). To commemorate the fact that it would be his final appearance in the WRC, the Frenchman’s car was painted in a special black and gold livery, which featured his career statistics.

Spark also released the first subject in its 1:43 Indianapolis 500 Winners collection: Mark Donohue’s McLaren M16B from 1972 (SPA43IN72).

1:43 British road cars included the 1982 Lotus Excel in white (SPK2219), the 2012 Aston Martin Vantage S in blue (SPK2169) and the Aston Martin V12 Zagato in red (SPK2406).

We also put some 48 new 1:43 announcements from TrueScale Miniatures onto the website today. There was certainly some interesting stuff; such as the Brabham BT46 that Niki Lauda took to second in the 1978 Monaco Grand Prix (TSM144302), Stephane Peterhansel’s 2013 Dakar Rally winning Mini Countryman (TSM144345) and the Porsche 917-10 that Mark Donohue took to victory in the Edmonton round of the 1972 Can-Am Championship. (TSM144346).
