New Slot It Toyota 88C



CA19a Toyota 88C, 24, Daytona 1969
Drivers:D.Olson, C.Cord , S.Bren

The Toyota 88C is a sports car prototype built in 1988 by Toyota according to the Group C specification, to race the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Japanese Sports-Prototype Championship.

The car, designed by Dome, was powered by a 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, named "3S-GT", a 2.1-liter, water cooled, 680-hp, 16 valves aluminium head, unit. The chassis was an aluminum monocoque, and the composite bodywork was made of carbon fiber and kevlar.

In 1989, one of these cars was entered in the IMSA GTP championship, a category with rules which were very similar to those of Group C in Europe, by All American Racers, Dan Gurney's (an American racing legend who won Le Mans in 1967) team.

The new Slot.it model reproduces the car that took part to the 24 Hours of Daytona, driven by Drake Olson, Chris Cord and Steve Bren. All American Racers, using this engine as a development base, was later (1992, 1993) able to claim, with the Eagle MKIII, two IMSA titles, two victories at Sebring and one in Daytona.

New Slot It McLaren GTR



CA10e McLaren F1 GTR n.40, Le Mans 1998.

Drivers: B.Auberlen, S.O'Rourke, T.Sugden

The McLaren F1 GTR production, directed by the former Formula 1 engineer Gordon Murray, began in 1992 and ended in 1998.

At that time, it was the fastest car ever built.

In 1995, the F1 GTR gave its first performance at Le Mans and won, bringing to the finish line five cars that ended 1^st, 3^rd, 4^th, 5^th and 13^th.

The car featured a monocoque carbon-fibre chassis and a BMW 5990 cc V12 engine.

In 1997, the F1 GTR was developed into the “Long Tail” version.

At Le Mans 1998, the McLaren n.40 finished in 4^th place, completing a very regular race, with only 40 minutes spent at the pits in the entire 24-hours time.

Gulf Slot It Ford GT40 MKI



CW09 Ford Gt 40 MKI: Le Mans Winner 1969
Drivers: Jacky Ickx, Jackie Oliver


The Ford GT40 was one of the most successful car who won four times the 24 hours of Le Mans in 1966 being the Mk II, 1967 the Mk IV, and 1968-1969 the oldest chassis design, the Mk I.

This is the first car in Le Mans history to win the race more than once with the same chassis; it was built to compete against Ferrari (who had won at Le Mans six times in a row from 1960 to 1965).

The Mk I chassis n. 1075 was a steel and aluminum semi-monocoque; body was reinforced with carbon fiber. It had brakes ventilated discs. The engine, originally a 4.7 liter, had been enlarged to 4.9-liter with the special alloy Gurney-Weslake cylinder head; the gearbox was a ZF 5 gears.

The MKI was later upgraded to Mk II specifications with a 7.0 liter (427ci) engine.
The GT 40 will become the most glorious of all Ford Racing; in '69 the car caught the victory at Sebring.
