A Pile Of New Announcements from Spark

posted in Rallying, Endurance, Resin |

Today Spark announced new replicas in both 1:18 and 1:43 scale.

11 of them were National Specials, many of which are due in the next few months or so. Our favourite has to be the Lancia LC2 that Mauro Baldi and Bob Wollek drove to victory in the 1985 Spa 1000km (SPA18SB001).

The Lancia LC2, in its Martini livery, has got to be one of the best looking endurance racers ever, and we believe that this will be the first time that the car has been replicated in 1:18. Why someone hasn’t made this car in the larger scale before now confounds us! This Belgian market special edition is limited to a mere 500 pieces worldwide.

We also think that the McLaren MP4-12C GT3 that Sebastien Loeb and Alvaro Parente raced during the 2013 FIA GT Championship season (SPA18SF002) is going to look excellent in 1:18 too.

In 1:43, the highlight was also a Lancia. More specifically it was the Lancia LC1 that Michele Alboreto and Piercarlo Ghinzani drove in the 1982 Fuji 6 Hours (SPKSJ021).

Spark also announced its brand new 1:43 Pikes Peak Collection. Some of these models, such as Ari Vatanen’s 1988 Peugeot 405 T16 (SPA43PP88), were originally announced under the Bizarre brand. The Bizarre versions have now been cancelled, and customers’ orders will be switched over to the new Spark code. Of course, all of our affected customers will be informed.

It’s worth mentioning that not all of the subjects are new. Spark will be re-releasing, for example, Sebastien Loeb’s 2013 Peugeot 208 T16 (SPA43PP13) with a figure.

There are some interesting new cars though, including Bobby Unser’s 1964 Lotus 23 (SPA43PP003) and the Norma M20FC that Romain Dumas drove in 2013 (SPA43PP002).

Of course, all of these miniatures will come in Pikes Peak branded packaging.
