Minichamps Re-releases Hunt’s 1976 McLaren

posted in Diecast, Formula 1 |

Today we received new 1:18 replicas from both Minichamps and Spark.

Minichamps finally re-released James Hunt’s 1976 Formula One World Championship winning McLaren M23 (PG761811). The success of the recent film Rush will ensure that replicas of this car are as popular as ever. Now all we need to do is wait for Mattel’s 1976 Lauda Ferrari (HWBLY40)! We should also mention that it is limited to just 750 pieces worldwide.

They also released the 2010 Ford Focus RS Le Mans Classic Edition, which is in the livery of the Ford Capri 2600 RS that won its class in the 1972 Le Mans 24 Hours (PG080072).

Spark also sent us an interesting classic F1 subject: the Lotus 33 BRM that Graham Hill drove to second in the 1967 Monaco Grand Prix (SPA18S082).

This was joined by the Porsche 911 GT1-98 that Allan McNish, Laurent Aiello and Stephane Ortelli drove to victory in the 1998 Le Mans 24 Hours (SPA18LM98), and the 1989 Daytona 24 Hours winning Porsche 962 of John Andretti, Derek Bell and Bob Wollek (SPA18DA89).
