Plenty Of New Announcements From Spark

posted in Touring Cars, Endurance, Resin |

Today Spark announced loads of new subjects, including 1:18 Le Mans cars, 1:43 WTCC cars, and 1:43 National Specials.

The most exciting set was undoubtedly the 1:18 Le Mans cars, which were predominantly from this year’s race. That means that they have now confirmed the winning Audi R18 E-tron Quattro of Marcel Fassler, Andre Lotterer and Benoit Treluyer (SPA18LM14) in the larger scale.

Similarly to last year, Spark will also be making the two Toyotas, several Porsche GT cars, and a couple of Orecas. More excitingly, Spark has also announced several cars that they haven’t done in 1:18 before, including both Corvettes, both Gulf Aston Martins and, perhaps most excitingly, both Porsche 919s.

There was also one car from last year’s race at La Sarthe that we would like to give special mention to: the Aston Martin Vantage V8 GTE that was raced by Peter Dumbreck, Stefan Mucke and Darren Turner (SPA18S154). This is the car that had the gorgeous ‘Night and Day’ Art Car livery, and we reckon it is going to look spectacular in 1:18.

There were eight more 1:43 replicas confirmed from this year’s WTCC, with the highlight being the Citroen C-Elysee of Jose Maria Lopez (SPK2462). There were six Chevrolet RML Cruze TC1s too, including the cars of Tom Chilton (SPK2456) and Tom Coronel (SPK2457).

The best of the National Specials was the Triumph TR2 that Eduardo Carvalho drove to victory in the 1954 Macau Grand Prix (SPKSA060), and the winning BMW 635 CSi that Hans-Joachim Stuck drove in the 1983 Macau Ghia Race (SPKSA052). We should also mention the 1:43 Daniel Ricciardo 2014 Belgian Grand Prix winning Red Bull RB10 (DC214403BK), which will be a Belgian Special Edition limited to 1,000 pieces worldwide.
