Latest Scalex releases

Maserati MC12
Reference No: C2784 Class:GT

History:
The Maserati MC12 is a two-seater long-tail coupe-spider with a long wheel base (2800 mm). It has a typical racing/sporty set-up with a removable hard top. It is also powered by a naturally aspirated 12-cylinder 65° V engine that displaces 5998 cc and punches out 465 kW (630hp) at 7500 rpm. Highly advanced composites and alloys have enhanced its structural rigidity and kept its overall weight down. The MC12's bodywork is entirely carbon fibre, while its stress-bearing chassis is made from a carbon fibre and Nomex honeycomb sandwich. The Scalextric MC12 is modeled on the Maserati that was released towards the end of the 2004 FIA GT season.

Peugeot 307 Reference No: C2788
Class:Rally

History:

The Peugeot 307 WRC was designed to replace the triple title winning 206 WRC for the 2004 season. The car features new engine, suspension and gear box with power of around 300bhp at an engine speed of 5250rpm. Despite early teething problems the 307 achieved its first victory with Marcus Gronholm driving car no.5 in Finland. Peugeot went on to claim 4th place in the 2004 Manufacturer’s Championship. The version modelled is the Peugeot 307 Pirelli sponsored yellow livery No.25 car driven by Italian Gigi Galli.

The Scalextric car:

Exclusively produced by Scalextric as a front mounted sidewinder motor, four-wheel drive chassis.Fitted with lights front and rear. Ideal to race against all of the Rally cars. This car has excellent road handling characteristics.

Advantages:
Superior detail in the crispness of the body lines and of the livery decoration. The front mounted motor provides weight over the guide blade thereby helping the blade to stay in the slot. This makes the car very satisfying to rally drive through corners as the back of the car can slide out but the car will not easily de-slot. The front driven wheels are always pulling the rear wheels back in to line from a skid. The 4-wheel drive rubber belt provides quiet and smooth power, a far more pleasing option than other designs.

Features:

Front mounted, sidewinder motor driving front axle with drive belt driving rear axle. 4-wheel drive - Sprung guide blade - Adjustable magnatraction positions - Front & Rear lights - Quick change braid plate.

Dimensions & Configuration:

Car: Overall length 136 mm, Wheelbase 82 mm, Weight 77 gm

Front: Axle width 56 mm, Tyre diameter 21 mm, Width 8 mm
